I'll allow "pinning" as long as you pull up the post & pin from it for a direct link for others. :-)

Makin Up For Lost Time...

Wow! What a crazy week! Every time I thought I would be able to get on here to post something, I got busy. By Friday, I was so drained, I didn't do anything but take the boys to/from school & veg at the house. Today has been much easier to handle, so I sat down with my Playlist & did some creating. The images were printed yesterday afternoon - coloring book pages reduced to stamp size, 4 to a page, cut out with Nesties - then colored last night while hanging out with the boys in front of the television.

You may recognize this first image from old Precious Moments coloring books. I colored her with colored pencils, used OMS on the ground & sky, then inked the edges with Ranger Distress Faded Jeans. Flowers are from Prima & centers are Ranger Liquid Pearls.

The background paper is from the English Garden collection by Making Memories. She was so sweet & easy to color!
Another image from Precious Moments that I colored with my pencils. I pondered putting a sentiment with it, but haven't decided if I want to use it as a "new baby" card for twins or for an anniversary card (I could write "wrapped up in you!"). Background paper is from a pack I purchased a couple of years ago (not sure of the manufacturer).
I actually LIKED the oranges on this & thought the colors really worked out well together...
And finally, a darling image from Sarah Kay, colored with pencils. I used OMS on the ground & sky, but nothing else...I just shaded & layered the colors. The background paper is from a pack I got at Wal-Mart ages ago & the stock for the Nesties layers is from DCWV Spring Mat Stack. I also used some half pearls, Prima flowers, Ranger Liquid Pearls, & leaves punched with my MS punches.
She's so bright & cheery...you can almost smell the flowers!
That's it for me today! I have some more that I printed (I always print my digi images off 10-20 at a time so I can color them as I feel the urge), so I'm gonna grab my pencils and go play.

Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!

Your cards are adorable. I like the precious idea. Maybe I could scan and do digital coloring. I'll have to give it a try.
