This week's challenge is a great challenge for me because I can always use "Thank You" cards.  But then, who doesn't?  It seems like I am always running out of them and making them at the last minute.  Or as I did in the past, made a few dozen for a special couple in my life to send out to friends and family thanking them for their support during a very difficult time in their lives.  But no matter what the occasion, I am always needing MORE.

So when I saw this image from Bugaboo, I knew it would be a perfect image that would work for any occasion in need of a "Thank You" Card.  And I decided to pull out some paper I had been saving for just the right thing . . . "Gabrielle" by Bo Bunny.  I remember seeing this collection when it first came out several years ago and being so disappointed about missing it because it SOLD OUT right away. And then being over the moon when got some in . . . though we were only able to get 1 collection per person.  But I took it!  Such luscious colors of brown, cream, peach and a minty green.  It worked perfect with the flower image I picked.  Here's how it out:

Copic markers used:
flower - YR61, YR65, YR68
middle of flower - Y08
leaves & grass - G82, G85
ladybug - R22, R24, R27
"halo" around image - BG10, BG000, BG0000
Other supplies: rhinestones (to make squiggles)

All-in-all I am pretty happy with the way this turned out . . . so much so, that I'm going to make a set of these to either keep to have on hand or to give as a little gift for someone special.  Who knows? maybe it will be you sometime.

And one more thing before I go, a friend of mine and fellow CIO DT member is having a super, ubber, fabulous giveaway over at her blog - "A Piece of My Heart".  So head on over there to enter (there's 7 different ways to enter).  And tell her I sent you. :)  And GOOD LUCK!!!

Till the next time I'm up in the night.  Kathy
