Oh, yeah! New Baby Boy card!

About a month ago a co-worker had her first grandchild born into her family, so I created a card to go with a group gift for her: 
Thanks for looking! 

Found: Mojo for cardmaking!

I've been having a good time creating cards lately but still don't seem to remember to post anything here.  Guess I'm just not a blogger at heart!  Anyway, here's quite a few I've done in the last couple of months----at least the ones I've remembered to take pictures of before sending off to Operation Write Home (OWH).   I focused on mostly "kid friendly" cards this weekend, since I rarely do that and was touched by a story I heard of a hero stationed in Afghanistan who tries to send a card to his/her 5 year old son daily. 

Don't you just love "googly eyes"? 
 All of the animal images I did were stamped with black Versa Fine Ink, then I used my water color pencils to color the images (but no water).  I used the Gamsol technique for blending the colors and I liked how they turned out!   I'm really new to that technique, but so far I like it and plan to continue working on improving.  I don't think I'll ever be a Copic coloring type of gal....but the colored pencils may be my thing. 

This last one is intended for Valentine's Day (which are due by December in order to get to the heroes and back home in time).  It's the first I've done "officially" for Valentine's Day, so I need to get hopping on that and get more done.  The "LOVE" sentiment is on pretty chipboard, but that's hard to make out fully here.
