Today I wanted to practice my coloring on this little cute stamp I bought at Hobby Lobby yesterday.  Kind of rough looking antique stamp but I loved it!!  It has other things to it, but I just used the girl.  It was a bit of challenge but fun!  I don't have too many trios in Copic markers, so I used the yellow for her dress since I do have a trio of colors on that one.  I didn't do anything fancy like clouds because I wanted to also try out my blue B00 marker.  I wanted to get the even lighter one for a softer look, but I just wanted to color with it and see how it looks.  The ground too, I am practicing on that.  So here it is:

Copic Markers Used:

Skin: E13, E11, E00, R22, R20
Shoes: E15, E13, E11

Basket: R22, R20
Eggs: Variety of Colors B14, B11, R11, R14, YR03, Y304

Two birthday cards I recently made. One for my mom and the other for my grandmother. All paper/cardstock used are from either Michael's or JoAnn's fabrics.  Love their sales and using the 40% - 50% off coupons.

One of my favorites.  I did this one for my mom. 

 I did this one as an extra which I will send soon to a friend.
 For my grandmother.

Father's Day cards... I am a newbie at this, so it was quite difficult to do the male theme cards... I didn't have any suitable image stamps to make the cards, so I went with simpler designs and anything I could find that I already had.  This is the end result.

Oh, I should say that I love using "twine!"  What a wonderful medium to add to cards! Gives it a nice, rustic look!
Very simple but I really like this one. 

This piece of twine is a bit difficult to work with.  All the hairs on it want to come off! :)

This piece of twine is easier to use than the one above.  
 Love this one too!  After I made them, it was hard to decide who to give it to!
