Sending Happy Thoughts

Good Morning! I'm back to work today. It's was a nice vacation but now I need to earn a living so I can continue to afford to buy all my new stamping toys! It's amazing to me how much is out there and how I need it all!

Here is another adorable Sugar Nellie girl. I love the colors in this card. Tomorrow is September 1st and when I pick up an image to color I am starting to think primary colors instead of all pastels. When I was looking at my Copic chart trying to decide what colors to use I went to my papers first. I usally don't do this because it backfires on me. I pick out paper that I think will go perfectly and then once I start coloring and blending my colors on the images end up not matching. I was please to see it worked out well this time.

I love all the Basic Grey 6 x 6 packs. Using these papers has expanded my comfort zone. The papers I used on this card are not papers I would have been drawn to if I was buying individual 12 x 12 sheets. I have alot of 12 x 12 paper but I always go to my 6 x 6 packs first. I wish everyone would make small packs. It is much easier to go through the larger paper to find what you want.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I hope you like my card.

Gorgeous job, Peggy! Your colors match great. I always have a hard time matching Copics with Rose Red. Still haven't found the right combo.
