Colored Today~Works in Progress~Double Rainbow!

Hi There!

Thank you for the lovely comments on my posts recently. You all are making me feel pretty darn good about my coloring attempts. I'm tickled you like what I have been sharing. 

I've got some works in progress to share today in honor of that 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I am struggling to work on cards because I mainly just feel like coloring in my books. 

A while ago I saw this card  and I loved all the elements as well as the colors and how she fit them into the circle. I hemmed and hawed about getting the set and finally went ahead and ordered it. Here's my copy of what the creator did. I colored with my pencils instead of Copics. 
I like it for the most part. I'm not sure if I like where I stamped the sentiment. That might change. Setting the stamps up on my MISTI made short work of the stamping. I got the little circles from some other stamp sets I own, they don't come with the Beach set from Hero Arts. Those are stamped randomly. I really like the fun, summery feel of the images. 

And I've taken some pictures of the page I started the other day. 
I colored the leaves that day. Yep, it has a lot of leaves! I came across this video by The Art Spirits and was completely smitten by the colorful leaves. 

Yesterday I got the house basically done. Today I added the shadows to the house and the trim. I also started on the trunk and branches. 

This can be enlarged to see the work close up.
I am enjoying the color choices I am making this time. :)
And finally,
we had some thunderstorms roll through during the afternoon. After we finished dinner and as I sat down to work on this post I noticed the sun was coming out while it was still raining. I hoped we might be able to see a rainbow. 
Here's what we saw from our driveway!
So pretty!

Well, that's it from me today.
Thanks so very much for stopping by. 
I hope you've had a marvelous Monday!

Wow! what a delightful post Jeanne! I love your sweet card and the coloring you did. It reminds me of a summer pool party!

I don't want you to take this wrong but before I saw your coloring book creations I just didn't get the whole coloring book thing! My sister and her DIL are really in to it and I just didn't understand. Each and every one of the pages you share are more spectacular than the last! I am WILD! about those leaves!! what a wonderful hobby!! Keep it up!

Jeanne thank you so so much for the wonderful and sweet comment you left for me on my Penny Black post! I love Blogland!! you guys almost made me cry today. I appreciate you!

OH that card is SO cute! It makes me want to get out some stamps and do something similar! That looks like so much fun! I love it! Your coloring page is amazing! I'm so glad I clicked on it to see it up close, because all of those colorful little leaves are SO pretty! I love the idea of coloring them all different colors! And the rainbow! Wow! That was really a bright and beautiful one, and a double to boot! Such a glorious sight! Love seeing all of your creative projects!! I'm glad you're getting time for fun things! ((Hugs))

Jeanne, YOU have brought rainbows to my day, with your sweet card, your new colouring enterprise and your photo of the gorgeous sky! I'm smitten with your circle of beach themed images, interspersed with the bubbles! Ultra sweet; in fact, so much so that I'd love for you to run it over to Cupcake Inspirations' tropical challenge! It's a perfect fit! Your colouring page: how pretty! Guess what I bought: a set of *postcards* with images to colour. Got them on sale at to find the time to colour a few before the 30 Day Challenge closes. YOU have inspired me!! I could spend all day colouring (actually, I pretty much spend all day crafting; a lot of 'restarts' these days *grin*). The view from your driveway...beautiful! Isn't nature amazing??
Have an excellent Wednesday, treasured friend!

Fabulous post, Jeanne! I love your summertime themed card. It's so bright and cheerful and loaded with the icons of summer. LOVE it!

You know I always want to see what you're coloring in your books. This one looks FANTASTIC already! I am LOVING how you've colored the leaves! The little bit of coloring you've done on the tree is so soft and pretty, I look forward to seeing it all finished.

And finally, you know I adore rainbows! This one is spectacular! Thank you so much for sharing it. :)

Have a wonderful day, my sweet friend!
Barb :)
