Good morning, Friends! (or afternoon, or evening)
I hope everyone's weekend is going well.
My husband has been off for a couple of days and is off again tomorrow.
Yay! We always have so much fun.
We met one of our daughters and her friend at a Greek restaurant yesterday for lunch.
It was nice to spend some time together and catch up.
All of our children are so busy with their lives and families,
so spending lunch catching up always feels really good.
Today I created a card for you.
The background for this image is sponged with inks.
The image itself is colored with pencils.
Now I know there are a lot of ladies out there who work magic with
Bic markers, Copics, and Spectrum Noir pens.
But not all of us are that talented!
You will be seeing some more images and my attempts to
color with some Spectrum Noir pens I got last week.
I don't make any promises for magic to happen,
but we all start off somewhere and not everyone
can stun and amaze with their coloring skills.
I encourage you to give pens a try.
Don't feel like you have to live up to someone else's ability.
All you have to do is try and enjoy the attempt.
Life is about experiences, chances, and change.
Stretch your wings a little bit and see where you can fly.
