For Mom...

Just a quick post for tonight...American Idol is coming on soon!

Tonight's card might seem familiar. It was made with a few leftovers from this card. I just couldn't part with the beautiful scrap of linen vellum, so I turned it into this:


This time around I colored one of the rose images from the Waltzingmouse Stamps Roses in Bloom set. Although I am fairly new to Copics, and I've never been much into coloring my images, I will admit that it's very addicting. And I find it to be very relaxing! I cut out and colored the roses in an evening, taking my time, then came back and put together the card. I think some of my best cards are ones that I've stepped away from for a day or two and then came back with fresh eyes to complete. It's hard to tell, but I used my Stardust pen for a little touch of glitter in the center of the flower:


Okay, off to make popcorn and enjoy the show! Do you have a favorite singer yet?!?

I'm a day behind on Idol -- I fell asleep last night while I was watching the guys' episode that I'd taped. I think Crystal Bowersox is great, I'm glad they gave Didi Benami some love, and Siobhan Magnus is cool. For the guys, I like Lee Dewyze and Casey James. Tim Urban is a cutie, but I liked Jason Castro's version better. :)
