Purple Hugs

Hello friends, 

Sympathy cards are always hard to make, but they are so necessary to have on hand.  I wanted to play around with purples.  I also chose to de-boss rather than emboss.  I could be my imagination, but I feel like it gave the card a softer look.  What do you think? 

Copics used:

Purple: V09, V06, V05, V04, V01, V00  or BV08, BV04, BV02, BV01, BV00
Green: YG67, YG63, YG61
White gel pen

Friend with Chocolate

Hello strangers, 

Surprise!  I'm popping back on the blog today.  I realize I've been MIA for awhile.  The weather in NY has been amazing.  I've been doing my best to enjoy every second of it.  We have been trapped at home for months...and sadly it doesn't look like the pandemic will end before the cold weather returns.  I hope that wherever you are, you are able to enjoy some sunshine. 

I made this during the quarantine, but it never made it off my desk.  I LOVE this cuties.  Has anyone ever explored jumping into a bowl of chocolate?  It might make it all better.  I feel like this is an option that we should at least explore.  

There is a house mouse challenge going on this week.  I hope you will stop by and check out all the cards from the talented crafters.
