Softpencil Thursday - Fav Medium

Hey guys. This week Kerry challenged us to use our favourite colouring medium. I jokingly asked how many of us she thought would use Copics. I'll be doing a count as I read the team blogs. We were divided up into groups. The group I was in got this sweet little Japanese Girl to work with. I wonder if Kerry already knew just how obsessed with Japanese culture my eldest son is. If not, she certainly does now.

I decided to make this card for my Mom. I haven't made one for her in a while - and Cody owes her a thank you. Since he is the heretofore mentioned obsessed son, I think this will be perfect for him to send.
As is my usual wont, I'm playing around with a few extra challenges. The first is Digital Tuesday's Challenge #47 - for mum. The believe token is an addition just from me, since my mom has always believed in me. Next is Flutter By #98 - anything goes (plus butterflies, fairies or angels). Then there is the ABC Challenge - O is for One Paper. The last is Color Cue Challenge #1 - red, white, turquoise and brown (or kraft.)

Don't forget to check out the rest of the Softpencil Design Team. All blogs are listed on the left sidebar.

If I can get my printer to behave, I'll be back later with my AiFactory post. If not, please check the AiFactory DT, also listed on the left sidebar, to see what they have to show today using these cute recipe cards.
