Yikes! I'm a little late posting my weekly Paper Pretties challenge card today! But here it is! Two weeks ago Joni challenged the Prettie Girls to use our own handwriting or drawing on a card. Well... I went a bit overboard on this one. I only meant to draw a tree with some leaves and next thing I knew there was a road, dirt, a bit of grass and a fence. What do you think? Does it look like Cooper is on his way to school? And really really happy about it!? :)
Quick notes: Stamped Cooper on Georgia Pacific white and doodled some images around him. Then I did lots and lots of coloring with Copic markers! I kept the rest of the card masculine and refrained from any frilly accents including ribbon although I did use Twill Tape. Let me know if you have any questions - I'm off to check out what the rest of the Paper Prettie girls made!

I just wanted to share this little itty bitty organizational tip since it works wonders keeping track of which Copic markers I use to color an image. After making a card and clearing out my stamping space I grab a sticky note and make a list of any special supplies that I used to make the card such as the Copic marker names or designer paper. After which I stick it to the back of my card until I'm ready to post the card to my blog. Works wonders - except when I am not at home and do not have access to my stack of sticky notes! :)
