Checking in and showing some older artwork!

First of all I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. I know we sure did with our family together to help celebrate the wonderful gift that Jesus gave us all. And, since I was busy with family I did not get time to be creative at all. I hope later in the week or next week I will have time and the incentive to play with my new things.

I have new Color Bursts waiting for me to play with them, I also have some new dies too. So hopefully, I will be feeling up to getting crafty later on. But if I am missing in action for a bit longer, do not be surprised. I will get back to you as soon as I am able.

I am going to share a card I made several years ago using stamps from They are the characters of The Wizard of Oz. It was always a favorite TV show of our kids and so while I was doing design work for this company I got the privilege of owning and using the great images featured. I had to hand draw the yellow brick road though. LOL This was colored in with colored pencils too.

I don't know if this movie is featured on TV anymore or not but it used to be a regular each year and it was always enjoyed by everyone, young and old alike. I can see since the time I did this card that  I have improved a bit in technique. But I still love this card and can remember having a great time doing it too.

Well, that is my post for today. Have a great week!

God bless,

Okay, you got my curiosity up - what are Color Bursts? And yes, I watched The Wizzard of Oz last week. It's kind of a tradition to show it around Easter time I think. This card is awesome. Great coloring. Hope you are feeling better and are on the mend. You have certainly had a time of it!!! Take care, my friend!
