One for the basket - lots more to go

This is one of the cards I’m putting in the basket I am donating to the Boy Scouts raffle.

I still don’t know how I got sucked into this. KIDS! Did I mention that they wanted all of the items that were going in baskets by last night, unless you were donating an entire basket.

I cased myself on this one. I made the original version of this as a square card and loved it. But because I’m a little on the OCD side, I wanted all of the cards in the basket to be the same size, so I modified myself, added some extra DP and some Prima flower.

I did color this with my new copics. I am loving these markers. They are so great to work with. But, because I am just a poor working mom with a kid who believes he should have clothes that fit and food EVERYDAY, I can’t afford all of the Copics I want, so for now, I supplement my Copic colors with my Bic Markers. So far, so good, but I know I NEED all of the Copics, even if I have to buy them 3 at a time.

Have a wonderful day and a great St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy Stampin'!

LOL Michelle, kids- you are right. Or on Friday after school they say, "hey, track starts on monday so I need my physical." Uh, do they know how long that takes to schedule?
Your card is awesome and someone will be very happy to recieve this basket I am sure.

What a cute card. Isn't is just lovely when kids want something at the last minute?!?! Mine tend to do that. I can't wait to order Copics, but alas that whole budget thing gets in the way! LOL

Cute! I hear you on both the kids and the copics! I just picked up a few this weekend at a stamping expo. Otherwise the only way for me to buy them is online...and then you have to pay shipping too.
