Ronan & Izzy - Summer Fun

Hi everyone! Just wanted to stop by and drop off this card. This image has not yet been released to the public. Not all my images will be free and this may very well be one of them. This cute little image is "Ronan & Izzy - Summer Fun". The cupcake actually does not come on the image, I drew it on, because I wanted to use it for a summer birthday card for my nephew. I can be overly detailed at times, but I try not to be too detailed on some of my images so everyone can add their own little extras onto the image to personalize it themselves. For instance, for extras I added dots on the tube, smaller dots on the larger dots on the ball and then the cupcake. I think this is a fun summer image of two friends having a good time in the sun! This image is also the give-a-way over at There's Magic In The Air. Anyone who participates in this weeks challenge has a chance to win it through a random drawing.

I made Ronan a little darker then I really wanted him to be and also made him a little splotchy (is that a word?) like seals can be. I colored this in the Bic Mark-its which I love, but still wish they had a much larger selection of colors. If I would have had a much lighter grey I would have used it to start out with.

OK.. off to get some things done today.... you have some summer fun and hey why not eat a cupcake too!

You Hoo..... it's "Kacey" !!!

Morning everyone! Yes, it's a Magical Monday again over at There's Magic In The Air. Below are the cards I made with the Free image "Kacey". This first card I followed the challenge over there which was a sketch. I wanted to do two complete different looks. This first one kind of soft in color, so I chose the pink with the black, which is always one of my favorite combos.

This second card I kept pretty simple, but wanted it to be way more fun in color. I really liked this pattern paper here and thought I really wanted it to do most of the work for me.... sometimes I am just that way; can you say lazy?! LOL.. but really I thought I colored the image so brightly in primary colors I thought with the paper I really did not want it to be too busy, so simple is good. I did add a few little blue flowers with rhinestones and the little red butterfly.

Now, make sure you go by "There's Magic In The Air" because this weeks give-a-way for the random drawing for participating in the challenge this week is another one of my digital images that has not been released and may never be free. So, if you want a chance on winning it, you have to participate! Did I mention it is super cute too? So go check it out. The image is full of summer fun!

So, thanks for stopping by and make sure you find the magic in today. It is everywhere; all you have to do is take notice!
