just because....

The weekend is here...yahoo! It is time for another Sweet Stop Sketches challenge.
I have really not been making alot of cards lately as things here have been so busy, so when I sat down to create this card I had a really hard time colouring up this little cutie. I actually struggled to colour...wow....I could not believe how I had forgotten to colour. I thought it was like riding a bike, you never forget! For this image I used copics AND prismas.
Well we are off to look at trailers to pull my sons dirtbike to the tracks this summer. Seems he wants to really get into racing. Not to sure I am sold on that idea. Hockey was one thing, but racing dirtbikes....whole new can of worms. Oh Summer....I can hardly wait.

  5. Christine! You can't tell you struggled with the coloring because it is amazing! Love that image. What is the maker? He is too cute! Very sweet spring card!!!!
    Dirt biking?! Yikes, I know what you mean, but then again I would feel that way about hockey too! haha! My son went through a phase of wanting to dirt bike, but there isn't any place to really ride legally, so that got scratched pretty quick.
    Have a great weekend Christine!
    Hugs, Dena

  21. Hello Chritine, Love the card.. Very very cute!! And yes I can sooooooooo understand just what you mean about the coloring thing. I have had the same problem here. I think you might want to stick to just hockey and NOT dirtbik racing.. LOL..... Less broken bones that way. :o)
    big hugs and have a great week..

  22. What do you mean "forgotten how to colour"! This is fantastic and the shading is perfect. Dirt bikes would scare the lift out of me too. I'm hoping Thomas chooses something more sedate like cricket!!
