ICSketch #33 & Magic in the Air

Nina has another adorable freebie image for you to snag this week at There's Magic in the Air. Her challenge is to make a card using the image on a sketch she has provided. Here is my take on the sketch.

As always, Dawn at Inspirational Card Sketches has another wonderful sketch this week. I used one of Nina's free images from a couple of weeks ago on this card.

And lastly, my son-in-law Danny has a birthday Friday. Here is the card that I made for him. And yes, I used another of Nina's freebie images from August on this card.

As you can tell, I have played catch up this week using Nina's freebies that I didn't have time to use during the week that they were posted. I must say I am getting more comfortable with coloring images. I have found if I use several different coloring techniques on one image -- copics, brush tip markers, ink, stickles, etc --that I wind up with a finished product that I am much happier with.

I am taking vacation days this week. I spent Monday and Tuesday trying to play catch up on some things in the house. I'm not worth very much today...feeling the effects of too much work for this old body along with bad allergy problems. I am going to ride along with hubby tomorrow when he heads to Northwest Arkansas to hold some foreclosure sales. We plan to stop in Clarksville at the Hanes Brands plant so I can shop at the employee store which is open to the public. You can get some really good deals there.

Luck, love and laughter,

I say keep coloring, you are doing a fine job, the more you do the more comfortable you will get and you seem to be doing just fine!! Thanks for playing along this week at TMITA! Hope you start feeling better too, I have the same stuff going on as well... ugh!
