Elmo's World!

Here is the quick and cute birthday card that I made for my dh. :o) My original thought was that this would be the card from the kids, and then I'd make a separate one from me. But I ran out of time, so this ended up being from all of us.

I am loving this PTI Stampers Select white paper. It's so nice to have a nice sturdy white paper that is strong enough to be a card base. It also works sooo well with the Copic markers. I love it!
Here is a close up of the coloring on Elmo:

I colored the entire image in R02 Flesh, then I colored over most of it with R05 Salmon Red, just leaving a little of the R02 showing for highlights. When I was done with that, I went back and added some dark highlights with R08 Vermillion. I love the way it turned out!

Are y'all ready for Christmas yet? I am soooo not... which means I guess I should stop typing and get busy actually doing something, eh?

Enjoy the day!

This is so CUTE! And your coloring... I am JEALOUS! I had to laugh at the way you ended your post with "EH?" We used to have a local minor league hockey team here. And of course, all the guys were from Minnesota, Wisconsion, Canada, etc. My husband and I were just talking about how we missed hearing the guys... Especially the "EH?"... Merry Christmas!

I AM SOOOO LOVING THIS CARD!!! My boys and I made a pretty good attempt at a Dh Birthday card, his BDay is Christmas Eve. We did okay, yours is AWESOME! I have the whole stinkin Seasame Street set and have not used it. The boys use it to stamp images for themselves to color in....is that wrong.hhmmmmmm

Great Card!

This Card is sooooo cute Sarah!!! I love how you colored Elmo!!! Great Card. I adore stamping on my SU WW CS, but I hear that some of the other whites are better to use for Copics and such. It would be nice to hear from another SU Demo what non SU papers you like because I do love my SU papers the white is so nice for stamping, but not as heavy duty!!! If you ever have a spare moment you might e-mail me at give me some idea's what CS you like the best!!

I have been so out of touch with checking my favorite blogs lately with all the Christmas Hub Bub!!!

I have missed some really cute projects on your blog that is for sure!!!

my e-mail is:

Great Card for Hubby!!!
