Be Thankful for the little things

Hi Everyone.

Doing another SBS Challenge using.

Little Indian Betty And Pilgrim Corinne. You can find them in the links below:
I drew a background and colored the background on PSE. Corinne and Betty were colored with Copic markers by hand. I would say it's much easier coloring by hand. LOL I used to do PSE and Illustrator in high school and somehow I've forgotten everything.... but it was still fun coloring about... even if I had to stop a million times to get it done. I hope you love these characters as much as I do.
Even though I have a chart... for some reason I always tend to do this... sometimes I'm blending a couple of colors...

 Here's the background I drew freehand.... the scenery is just from my head from what I remember  seeing Teepees looking like. Nothing special I just wanted to put my characters in a setting that matched them. 

Thanks for stopping by.

JIC Rosette Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Back with another Just Inspirational Challenge This week is to use a rosette anywhere on your project. The DT gals worked with images from The Paper Shelter; I used a pre-colored image "Rock Star" of course the image is also available non-colored. You can get your Rock Star digi here:

I've also use a Scalloped Stitched Rosette die from
and Teeny Tag Greeting Stamp Set

Here is a better look at the dies used. 
Here is the Sketch I used for inspiration... Thank you to Tanja Charles for reminding me of these sketches. 

Remember to use rosette's in your project and enter them at:
