Be sure you add your card to the gallery in the linked post above 😀 I cannot wait to see what YOU do with it.

PRIZE FOR THIS WEEKS WINNER: The winner will receive the Harriet Hop-Along Birthday set, in honor of our latest release! (see my sample below for a idea :D)

Here is MY take on the sketch 😀 I had a blast with it, and hope you will too.

Happy 7th Birthday!

I am truly in LOVE with the Harriet Hop-Along Birthday set! This is a NEW! release that I am just over the moon for. Not only is she cute, but she can make the perfect card for so many occasions, one being birthdays, of course!

I made this to keep on hand, as my daughter Amber will be 7 this summer, and many of her friends will be turning 7 also! I always need cards ON HAND 😀

I have been longing for more images to color, and let me just say it was so fun! I cannot wait to release more “color me pretty” images in the future.

The colors were inspired by the Candy Shoppe Pretty Printables Paper.

I colored my image in with my Copic markers, but for the balloon, I colored that digitally!

I digitally colored the balloon  because I wanted the 7 th on the balloon to be in white, and the pink balloon to match my printable paper! So I colored the balloon pink (picking up the colors from the Candy Shoppe Pretty Printables Paper). I then took my copic marker and shadowed it afterward.

It is SO  nice having my own printable paper, that I can resize (nice having large or smaller scale versions of a pattern), and only use what I need (no waste). I only need a decent stock of white or ivory cardstock and I have TONS of options. I love not needing to store tons of patterns, or worry about running out. With ONE purchase I get unlimited use of the digital paper! We carry over 140 paper collections right now 😀 Check them out!

That does it for me!

I have much to do (like finally load stuff to my gallery EEK! I need an assitant who can do that! LOL!) and am uber excited to see your projects too!
