Digi Doodle Shop ~ Autumn Colours

Autumn colours 002I

I’m back again, a bit more refreshed than my previous post, I’ve a cuppa at hand and feeling bright and breezy. Its my Grandmothers 90th birthday today so we’re having a family get together to celebrate, there will be 5 generations in 1 house, should be fun although my granny doesn’t like to celebrate birthdays now, she still talks about the old lady down the street etc she doesn’t consider herself as old and she doesn’t like her age on the front of her cards, so I made this little card for her, no age, just a happy little card, hope she approves lol.

Well its time for a new theme over at the Digi Doodle Shop challenge and it has also come to the end of my term as a design team member with the Digi Doodle Shop, it has been a fantastic 6 months , I love the Digi Doodle Shop images and it has been such a fantastic design team to work with, its been a great pleasure to work with them all. Ok, this week we would like to see some…..

‘Autumn Colours’

I Love Autumn and got a very strange look from my daughter when I said inhaled the air and said “ I love the smell of Autumn” I know I’m not the only one who can smell Autumn, I can smell every season, thats not strange is it?

Anyway, onto my card, I love flowers, especially receiving them lol but have great fun colouring them, this is a little image called ‘Geranium Bud’ from the Digi Doodle Shop, i have coloured the image with promarkers and I have added some little drops of Glossy Accents to look like dew. .

Here is a close up.

First, Happy 90TH to her! I can certainly understand how she feels about the age thing. Heck, at 90 I wouldn't want to be reminded of it either! LOL Bless her heart. Now secondly, I'm blown away by your coloring. I honestly thought when I first saw it that it was a computer generated image that was already precolored. This is stunning work. She is simply going to love this! Great job Kiddo! Best, Curt
