150327 - High Hopes - Fox on the Beach

Isn't this the cutest stamp from High Hopes Rubber Stamps?  The Stamp is called Fox on the Beach.  As soon as I saw it, I knew it was all about my DAD!  My dad turns 76 today!  Everyone used to call him the sly fox when he was working (many many years ago before he retired) so I knew I had to make this into a birthday card for him!

The top green tule actually pulls (see image 2) out a hidden message for my dad from myself and my family!  Hopefully he will know enough to push it back down afterward so it stays with the card LOL!

Just in case he doesn't remember to push that tag down again into the card, I will write similar sentiments inside the card

The Copic Markers that I used to colour this image are;

Fox - Brown - E40, E41, E42, E43
Fox - Red - R59, E08, E35
Nose - Eyes - C9, C7, C5, C3
Glass - BG000, BG0000, B00
Umbrella - YG07, YG05, Y35, Y38, Y00
Blanket - BG02, BG07, BG09

The product that I used for this image are;

Card Stock - On Hand
Brads - On Hand
Ribbon and Tule - On Hand

I hope you join me again next Friday for another High Hopes Card Design!  Thanks for popping in and have a great week!

150323 - Happy Birthday Rod

Hi Everyone!

My image today is from Sassy Studio Designs called The Greatest Gift.  My friend asked for a birthday card for her husband and she wanted a cougar type woman (she is a few years older than her husband) so I couldn't think of a better image than this.  Two reasons - She is BEAUTIFUL and right now she is also pregnant!  So what better birthday card can her husband get other than a card made to look like her and her giving him another child?  Now my friends husband (also my friend) is my hair dresser too!  And Hair it typically not my friend when I am doing the hair...but OMG the hair on this turned out fantastically if I don't say so myself!

I coloured the image with (of course) Copic Markers!  The Copic Markers that I used are;

Skin E21, E11, E51, E04

Hair E57, E47, E49

Eyes B00, BG45, BG49, 100
Bra/Panty C1, C3, C5, C7
Bow/Earring R56, R37, R35
Lips R05, R27, R02
Shadow E42, W1, W00
Background YR000, YR0000

The product that I used on my card are;

Rest of the card - I had available to me in my stash!  I just love stashes LOL

I am entering this card into the following challenges;
