In the Garden...

Another birthday card for you today, though this one won't stay in my stash. A lady at church put in an order with me for a few birthday cards and requested the one for her sister be something about gardening, so I thought my new Thomas Kinkade image from Cornish Heritage Farms would be perfect. I enjoyed coloring in the image so much! I know I've said it before, but the clean look you can get with the Copics verses the Prismacolor pencils is just wonderful. Granted, I still love my pencils for certian looks, but the extrememly detailed Thomas Kinkade images are not one of them! I hope you like it:) And thank you for all your kind comments.

Supplies:
Stamps: The Rose Garden, Thomas Kinkade, Cornish Heritage Farms,PTI, Mixed Messages
Tools: Cuttlebug tiny tags die, sewing machine, white thread
Other: Copics

Wow! Stunning. I really had to take a good look to see that you colored that yourself. It looks beautiful, and I'm sure she'll love it.

I love Thomas Kinkade paintings and you did a fab job coloring this image. What a lot of work I am sure but it could look like a photo. You are so talented and I look forward to working alongside of you as GD for Sweet-n Sassy.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Yowser, Leah, this looks like a printed postcard! Your coloring is amazing! I also have to say that In the Garden is a very special hymn to me... it was my mom's favorite.
