This little cutie from Mo's Digital Pencil "Little Umbrella" screams summer....and I think now that it is mid August (and kids are back to school here) I have realized all those things I meant to do to celebrate the sun. When we were at the Ranch I had to watch my sun time by the pool, and riding (not easy when its 110 degrees) as the medication I was on warned me to be cautious....I decided to follow the directions and did not get to spend the time I so enjoy in the pool and basking in the sun. Now, before I know it, summer is just about gone! So why not color up this lovely lady.
When I began coloring her I posted her in process on my Facebook page. One of my friends, who is in charge of Cross Walk Bookstore in Missouri (where I send a lot of my Christian cards for sale) challenged me to put some scripture to it and send it to them. Loved the challenge - while there were some scriptures I thought of, I just happened to get a Stampin' Up order in the mail a few days later and lo and behold my Trust God set contained what I think is a perfect sentiment. "Each one of us is God's special work of art". Inked it up, put it on paper, and viola - a card that makes me 'smile'. I am in the process of coloring and putting a few more of these together as I think it is the perfect birthday card for a few of my friends.

I loved being in the pool this Summer - the water was very warm! Although the temperatures were awful around the country - when I was in the pool I didn't really notice it. Now, the sun isn't as warm - and the water certainly isn't as warm either! But - there's always next year.
I love this image - I've used her a couple of times. Adorable card and coloring is wonderful. The BG is perfect Summer colors and I like the added clouds and shells!

Awww, my birthday was too early for this awesome card - but yes, you DID find the perfect sentiment for it!! Your friends are so gonna love the giggles this comes equipped with!!
This image is dynamite coloring, Sister!! Backed with the summer-y DP, it could not be even the teensiest better since it is already the best!! Love the scalloped seashells and that you scalloped the sentiment's edge to match - it's MARVELOUS - you are going to have to make a ton of these!! I wanna order some!! LOL
