Here's a card I made the other day using an image from Sassy Cheryl's.  I have a shoe box full of images I printed and never got around to coloring.  I don't know why this particular image caught my attention. But I think it's really cute.
I used papers from my scrap bin.  The past two images I've colored I have been unhappy with the hair, so I spent some time studying Copic colored hair by others and have been working on it..will put some of the new hair up later.

Little Birdie

This is my card for the monthly challenge at Designed2Delight.

On this card I used, an old stamp, Penny Black, that I haven't used in ages and I used some paper from my scrap bin....I think it was from Kaisercraft. I used my newest bottle of  Sparkles.  I'ts been awhile since I've done a "real" Challenge. I'm going to put this in over at Sketch N Stash for #103. This is a first for me over there as I just found this blogspot.  Went searching after SFYTT ended, gotta do something to keep me in my craft room.
It looks better in real than here in this picture! Lol!

Crested Saguaro

My hubby was out exploring a new housing development near our house and discovered this crested saguaro.  We had  two in our development but both have died.  Neither of those were as spectacular as this one.
Yes the sky was blue as blue can be...but I think the angle he took this at caused the deep colors...?

This Mornings Sky

I really missed the best color of the sky this morning, but still pretty.
And this one....
The sunrises should start to get really pretty this time of the sun sets further south along the Catalina Mountains.  The mountains have been all shades of pinks at sunset time the last few that means the sunsets are getting gorgeous.

Let it snow

I really don't want snow...never lived in it and probably never will.  I do think it's beautiful tho'.  Using the cute, new snowman from Designed2Delight, this is my card for October free stamp of the month.

Two Harris Hawks

There were three out behind the house but these two in the same saguaro.  The sun was shining beautifully so the pic is really a silhouette.
