School Cuties

This is my first time trying a sketch from Create with Connie and Mary. What a great sketch!

And my very favorite set, ok, well, one of them, is Greeting Card Kids. But, as I told you yesterday, I hate coloring in images because I am so not good at it! But, my mother, The Artist, gave me a great lesson and now I think I can handle these open images! I used ink pads and blender pens to color these cuties.
And how bout that paper! Love it! It's called Love Letter and I will be using it over and over this year. Red and Black are my favorite! You should see my house! Its all red and black!!
My thoughts were that this would make a great teacher retirement card. Or even a Mother's Day card. Or a Thank you Teacher card. Or a new teacher good luck card... the possibilities are endless!
Stamps: Greeting Card Cuties, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink and paper: Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Ridinghood Red, Marina Mist, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom, Love Letter DSP
