Proud as a Peacock

Hi Friends

Yes, I am proud as a peacock as my wonderful grandson, Tony, completes another successful year at I.U. (Indiana University).  So proud.  I made this card for him but followed the sketch and instructions at Tuesday Morning Sketches so it is being entered in their challenge this week.  You can see all the information here.  My card.............

I started with the cutest image of a peacock which is part of the Zoo-pendous set from There She Goes Clear Stamps.  I usually select my papers before I start coloring so I can get a better feel for what colors are close.  I used the Print Poetry paper stack from Stampin' Up (retired).  The base of the card is Very Vanilla although it looks white in the photo.  I had some help coloring today....
Uh huh, that's Bailey's tail ... "hey mommy, want to feather your coloring?"  Fortunately, Copic markers dry almost instantaneously so no worries.  I figured he knows he's my #1 assistant and was just doing his job.  =^..^=   I distracted him with some of his toys (always strewn all over my floor) and finished the peacock.
I hope this card brings a smile... it did for me!  Thanks for coming by to visit us... we'll be back tomorrow... hopefully.



  1. I absolutely love your colouring! Obviously Bailey knows what he's doing! Perfect paper choices, and I love the piercing too. Thanks so much for coming to play at TMS - your card will be featured on our Facebook page today:
