Cupcake Mouse

After two weeks of computer failure, a new computer!  So nice.  I finally made it to my craft room for one quick card.  Not some of my better work though, I went into my craft room for solace, I had just received the news that my Daughter-in-Law's beautiful, vibrant 24 year old sister lost her battle with cancer.  I had been sending Vanessa cards to cheer her, so with weepy eyes I came up with this card for My Time Made Easy Pretty Pattern #21 and I use the cute cupcake mouse from Delightful Inspiration Designed 2 Delight.
Image is colored with Copic markers...I paid for a Copic class at Color Me Creative but haven't taken it yet...think I need to...LOL.  I also bought the new book "Copic Coloring Guide" and need to read it!
The DP is from My Mind's Eye, Lime Twist, Happy Go Lucky collection.

Happy Birthday

Using an old computer as mine finally died for good.  So this will be my last post for a while..until I get a new computer.  For Mojo Monday sketch #202.
I edited this in Photoshop, which I haven't used in over a year.  It was loaded on this old XP computer.  So...all stamps from Hero Arts.  Had to use stamps because I have no access to my digi images! LOL
