I have been keeping my eyes open for free digital images to practice on my Copic and Prismacolor pencil skills, when I happened along the Delightful Inspiration blog with a Free Digi challenge. If you play with the first image of the month, you get the following weeks digi image free.....so I started playing along, and I am having a blast! This week the image is free- and isn't this gorgeous??? If you miss out- you can go to the digi store and purchase an image to get started, then the next image is free......if you refer a friend-and they mention your name- you get an additional free image. (Please mention my name in your link if you would- I will recieve an additional image!).
OK, my card this week was made using Copic Markers. I colored with R81, R83, R85, G21, C1, C2, and C5. I colored over the middle heart with the Signo Silver Metallic Pen. I outlined the image and bird with C1. The CS is Pixie Pink by SU, Silver metallic and G.P. White. The BG paper is made with a Technique Junkies Technique called Spritzed Stone- using Copic Markers. If you know me.....you know that I LOVE trying new Techniques and I will be making more of these pretty backgrounds for sure-it is so much prettier IRL! I stamped the sentiment from Firecracker Designs by Pamela Flourishes 6 and placed it in a metal frame, and attached this to the card using Silver Metallic cording. The bow on top is a wired metallic Silver ribbon-and is attached with a glue dot. I added clear Dew Drops so the BG color would show through.

Now, on for the good stuff!!! BLOG CANDY!!!
I have a passion for soldiers- I send boxes to Iraq every month for the kids- I send random stuff my 21 yr old son might enjoy....... A couple of SU demos gave me tons of card fronts a year or so ago, I am still working on mounting them and sending them a few at a time........
At work, I share a desk with a nurse Mini. Mini's son is going to be heading to Afghanistan next month. So, I want to offer this set from Firecracker Designs by Pamela as blog candy and ask for you all to say a prayer to ask God to comfort him and keep him safe so far away from home and on such a dangerous mission.
