Welcome to the Summer Garden by release Sweet November Stamps over at 7 Kids Crafts. The design team has some really beautiful cards to share and I really enjoyed coloring this month's release. Because these images have many details I really wanted to use my colored pencils to give them justice. I am sure that anyone can color them beautifully with markers or other mediums but for my ability I wanted to use pencils. I get a little more control using colored, plus I hadn't used mine in a while. I wanted to use only Polychromos pencils but I didn't realize that I grabbed a couple of Prismacolor pencils as well.... shows my organization heehee but I did like the colors when I laid them down on Kraft Cardstock..

Here is an excerpt of Sweet November - Gerbera Daisy Fae:
Next along the garden path the happy Gerbera Daisy Fae welcomes all with a cheery disposition that matches the flowers she so loves. There is a happiness in this corner of the garden that is completely irresistible. One can't help but smile as you watch the daisies sway and dance atop their long stems and Gerbera Daisy dancing right along with them.
