Jackson Digital Expression Launch Party & Blog Hop

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the Launch Party for Jackson's Digital Expressions. If you came here from Berni Cuttino then you had landed in the right place.  If not, return to Jackson's Digital Expressions and start the hop there!  We are having a BLOG HOP and Design Challenge to introduce our DT members and to introduce many of you to our  Resident Artist, Robert Jackson. We hope you will  HOP along with us, PLAY along in our Design Challenge, and BECOME a new follower!
Here is my project.
I chose this cute little girl, the digi is called Go Night Night I  
I found the sentiment on line and just ran it through my printer
I used Koh-I-Noor colored pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits (OMS)
For the hop my project was to include Kraft Paper
I chose my new Spellbinder's die Romantic Rectangles because
it reminded me of those fancy crochet baby blankets I used to see from older relatives.
                             Here is close up of the face. The colors on the picture don't give it justice...

Happy Birthday Granny!

 Good evening everybody!

Hope all is well with everyone. Today I colored in Cheeky Shooter from The Greeting Farm but I didn't get to start on the card to later in the evening (mom life...) It's a birthday card for my hubby's granny, We call her 'Mama. LOL Yes her age is a secret her own kids don't know it... but one day I had her do a puzzle that I found in one of those gossip magazines and bam! I figured it out and I told her age and she was embarrassed some how and told me not to tell anyone and that I must of made a mistake.... lol too funny. But her secret is safe with me.
I used Copics for the skin and colored pencils for her clothes.
Jelly Rolls of course for the white sections. I used a little bit of the
Copic Atyou Spica Red, not so sure if I'm happy with that one...
some of the other colors sparkle more.
I tried to use it on her scarf, belt and boots.
Yes, I get out of the lines but only when I plan on cutting
(at least it's what I tell myself and my daughter LOL)
 My lighting is always weird in the house....
It's an easel card but I added a personal message ;)

I found this quote and it is just perfect for her,  "Don't want to admit being a day older than 29?" the inside says: "Stick to your guns, girl! Happy Birthday!" lol Plus she loves all of those western movies, every time we go to her house and every time, if the kids aren't watching tv at my house and she's here you bet the  channel is turned to guess what? one of those old western channels. LOL

Anyway, started dinner later cause of my little card lol but I had fun. Good night everybody!

-Thanks for stopping by
