I made this card special for a grand niece of mine. She lives a block over and comes to craft with me. She has a strawberry birthmark on her face and is bullied mercilessly at school. I wanted to make her feel special just as she is to me. She's very creative and pays attention to detail as I do. I love that about her! She takes after her awesome grand aunt! lol Her visits are all the more dear to me right now because I've not felt well for weeks and my daughter remains estranged. OK, now I'm fixing to make myself cry so let me get to showing you my card.
Here's the card I made for her:
Surprise! It's just a plain ol' easel card:

I'd like to enter my card into these challenges:
I am a follower of these blogs. The blog layout I use does not allow me to list challenges on a sidebar. Instead, I display badges and / or links here.

Card stock, printed paper and flower from my stash
You know, this is the FIRST TIME EVER I tried using the no lines coloring technique... and... I know I didn't do it right because I couldn't make myself make them any lighter than I did. Thank goodness! I thought I was going to start crying in the middle of coloring the image! lol I had to keep referring back to the image on the screen. I kept the image on the screen the entire time I was coloring. I've tried it... I don't like it... I won't do it again... it kinda reminded me of chemistry. lol My kids would walk in and find me crying while I was doing my homework and tell me, "Drop the class, Mom!" I didn't want my son to walk in and find me crying while I was coloring. I thought he might rip it out of my hands and that would be it. lol
Thanks for stopping by my place today!
