Happy Easter, Everyone!

 Always the Last Minute!

I was finishing these up for our grandchildren today! It seems I'm doing things later and later every holiday. They didn't even get cards for Halloween this year! I had them made, but never got the insides done.

This one uses a digital image from Karen's Doodles. I added a little life to the iris of his eye with lines drawn with a brown Multiliner pen. He's colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. The DP and buttons are from Basic Grey, and the CS is Guava, Banana, and Celery from SU!. The paper "rick-rack" is from Doodlebug, and the punched border is from Martha Stewart.

Here's one using a digital dragon image from Dustin Pike. His dragons always bring a smile! Most of the info is the same as the first card, but the SU! card stock this time is Tempting Turquoise, Gable Green, and Green Galore.

I love color, but I think I overdid it this time! This is another Dustin Pike digital image. I've had it colored for over a year...I think it may have been one of the first images I colored using Copics!
Again, the DP is Basic Grey (Trying to use up all my scraps!), Turquoise, Green Galore, and Yo-Yo Yellow CS from SU!. The yarn is something else I've had for years. The button brads add even more gaudy colors!

I've entered the dragon card in Dustin's Easter Challenge

These are so bright and fun. Totally made me smile when I read your comment about the Gaudy colors. That is the way I feel when I use bright colors out of my comfort zone but these are fantastic
