Swinging Hi!

I'm back again with a second post for today(scroll down to see my Autumn Teddy card). Whoo hooo! Laura over at The Crafty Sister really has inspired me to color these past few days. Here's another card that I thought was adorable and had to case(hope she doesn't mind).  I really like the flower paper she used, but alas, don't have that paper pad.

Here's my version, using colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I think I printed my image off a bit too small. Some of the areas were teeny tiny and a bit of a challenge to color. Ah well. She's still cute. Hope she doesn't slide off the tire swing though...that's a bit of a drop, isn't it?

The tree paper is  from Doodlebug's Flower Box 6x6 pad. The hi is a Paper Smooches sentiment from  the Simply Said set. You can find the image here at  A Random Fan on Etsy.

That's it from me for today. Thanks ever so much for stopping by! 

Hugs, 
Jeanne

Oh another darling card! What a cute image of the little girl in the tire swing and your coloring is so amazing! Did you sponge those clouds in the background or is that Paper?? Love that Doodlebug paper too! So cute!! Wonderful work my friend!

I'm glad you were encouraged to color more, Jeanne, you do a fantastic job of it! This card is so adorable and that side panel of colorful trees is really an inspired design feature!! Yes, poor dear, that is a bit of a drop, but I'm sure if she slips off, she will catch herself on the button bows you have kindly provided for her!! Hugs, Darnell
