One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Copic coloring with Kara

How adorable is this friends?  This is MFT Friends Furever and my sweet NEW friend, Kara from Kara Lynne's Card Design stamped this image and showed us how to color it with copics!
We sat in the kitchen of the Craft House in Newton Kansas because it had lots of windows for natural lighting and the tables were narrow so we could get lots of one on one attention and our super fine teacher could go around to each of us.
And if you look closely at the highlight area of this sweet little cuddly bear where his heart should be, it actually looks like a heart shape!  Unintentional on my part, but when I spotted it, I thought it was so perfect!
Kara showed us a technique for both the grass and the sky, I thought it was a wonderful technique and will use it again!  I also thought this image would make a perfect baby card!
One more awesome project from my craft retreat with new friends...more to come later!
Heart Hugs, friends!

  5. Oh Colleen, you captured his nubby fur so perfectly. This looks like the bear my oldest son had that he carried everywhere when he was little. It's fur got so worn and nubby like yours. I love that you accidentally made his little heart. I just "met" Kara online and she is the sweetest.
