A couple of new birthday cards

I just gave this card away yesterday! I can't believe how fast this month has gone by. DH is back to work and I am pretty close to being caught up on my stuff! I have a lot of cards to put together (and post)! I think my coloring is improving some. I know that I am thrilled with our new wireless printer. It prints in no time and best of all, I can use my copics right away and on Staples cardstock! It is a Kodak and was super cheap and so is the ink. I am now buying digital stamps which brings me back to this part of my post - this stamp is from I think it may have been a freebie but I met this gal at my certification class and she is the one that told me about Staples cardstock. She designs some adorable stamps! This stamp is about Tia. Soo cute!
I can't believe how much fun I had making this card - its one of those that comes together in a flash! Copics I used are E00, E11, E37, R20, R37, R39, C7, Y21, Y28, Y02, Y08, YR23. My friend loved it!
This next card is made for one of my sons. He was such a happy child, always laughing so I called him my Sunshine! He is now 39 and not quite so happy, so I thought I would remind him! He has a little girl of his own whom he adores and somehow this image (Victoria Case) was just perfect. It was very difficult to color as I kept trying for realism! Whoever heard of a real monster? When I tried blue, I began to see that this wasn't real and to just have fun with it. I kept the other two tries so I wouldn't do it again "realisically"! The inside is the Sunshine part. Hope you enjoy it!

Copics I used are B00, B02, B05, B000, E00, E11, E33, E35, E31, R17, R20, Y11, Y15, C1, W5.
As you all know by now, I love stickles and somehow just have to find places to use them. I recently bought yellow and love how it comes out. Used the red and yellow stickles on the red background paper for the sparkle. Thanks for hanging in with me! I appreciate all your wonderful comments. I am hoping to post much more soon. Hugs to you all, Barb F
