On the Move

Hello friends,

The local news station just did a story about people who are allergic to cold weather!  Is that really possible?  Maybe that is my problem.  LOL...     As the snow falls, I sometimes dream about moving closer to the Equator.   I don't think my husband will ever agree... so making cards about moving will have to do.

Some of my students requested cards for either New House or Moving.  They are good to have on hand. I thought this could be a good card for the young adult going away to college or getting a first apartment.

I love the finished accent at the top.  I threaded the string through the button and then glued it to the ribbon.  The ribbon is just folded in half and glued.    I also used a brown marker to make the faux stitching around the edge of the card.

Copics used:

Bear: E30, E31, E33, E35, R00
Mouse: C1, C3, C4, C5, R00
Rabbit: T0, T1 and R00,  R11
Grass and Plant: G40, G43, G46
Pot: E95, E97, E04, E07--I had to play with this a lot.
Lamp: YR00, YR01, Y21, Y23, B12
Cups: YR00, YR01, YR02
TV: T4, T5, T7, T9   Screen: T0, T1
Red: R24, R29, R39
Couch: B00, B21, B23, B24- this is a little challenging.  You can pick easier colors if you like.
