B&W Happy Birthday
The challenge at Meljen's this week is simple - a birthday card! I love this little Firefly Fairy from Meljen's and I really wanted to do her in color. However, I had some inspiration from a paper I just got from Best Creation Inc. called Mr. & Mrs. I didn't actually use the specific paper I got the inspiration from but used some counterparts of the same set. This was a simple card - the coloring was the roughest part for me as I'm still learning my Copics and I've never done a black and white before. I only used three Copics (C1, C3, C5) for the whole black and white scheme of the fairy and her clothes. I did add some yellow (Y000, Y15, Y19) for the lightening bug and the balloons. I also used a few other gray tones for the balloons (N0,N3,W1,W3,W5).
I should also mention that a wonderful lady - Sheila from She's a Sassy Lady to be exact - presented my blog with this wonderful little award!
1. I love my family - which is truly a part of me
2. I love my intuition
3. I love my ability to gab with just about anyone!
I have so many pictures I love - my favorite is probably the one of my two girls over on the sidebar - but this one is of my little baby girl who loves my craft area that's filled with chokey stuff and sharp stuff - so I have to keep her out, but one day she crawled by and I looked at her and here she was with this googly eye stuck to her face - we laughed and laughed and luckily caught her with stinker face in this picture! LOL
I also need to tag five peopel for this award: so here it goes
1) Donna - She just started her blog CardDreams by NanaDonna - OH MY GOSH - she's amazing check her out
2) Stephanie - She is just starting up a challenge blog - join the fun
3) The Cricut Couple - there is stuff is just fabulous
4) Jen - a really good friend of mine that's also just starting up her blog
5)Amy at Papertrails by a Paper Lover - her cards are amazing
So the rules: thank the person that gave it to you, post it on your blog, name three things you love about yourself, share a picture you love, and pick five other wonderful bloggers for the award!
