Little Fireman : CMC Boys, Boys, Boys Challenge

Dedicated to Lisa and her wonderful family.

Happy Thursday to all my wonderful friends!  I am in Hawaii taking a much needed vacation.   Of course, I brought my copies along so I could take the basic and intermediate Copic Certification class taught by Marianne Walker.   It's a rough life but someone has to do it! LOL!

I wanted to get this post up and let you know that Color Me Creative has a wonderful challenge with a "boys" theme. Get out those Copics or Pro Markers and color some cute boy images!

Our wonderful sponsor is:

**Prize from our sponsor Mo's Digital Pencil is a $15 Gift Certificate to spend at her store!!
**1 pack of Cryogen Cardstock

For my Design Team card I selected a cute little image by Mo Manning. called Playing Firefighter.  I dedicate this to my wonderful friend Lisa whose husband is in the military serving as a firefighter!  

Stamp:  Playing Firefighter digital image (Mo Manning)

Copic Markers:   
R20, R0000, R22, R24,W1, 
C3, C5, C7, C9, 
Y04, Y02, Y0000, 
B06, B04, B02, B000
G28, G24, G20

I must apologize for my coloring.  We needed to work ahead on our Design Team cards and I did this just before taking Suzanne's  On The Road Class and realize that I needed to blend much better....  but hey...  maybe I will see my improvement!   That's what I am taking away from her wonderful class.... Blend! Blend! Blend!

Thank you for spending some of your precious time with me on my blog.  I know we are busy and I do appreciate having you stop my.  It means so much!  Thank you!
Back to vacation!  LOL



  1. Darling card Marie. I love how you colored this little boy. Great card. I'm using a Mo image too! Wishing you a great time in Hawaii and fun at the Copic Certification Class.

  2. Fantastic coloring and choice of paper. A real show stopper!

  3. This is just way too cute!! Love the papers and awesome way you colored it.

  4. Oh Marie,
    You never cease to amaze me. I just about jumped out of my chair when I saw that little fireman on my screen! I'll admit, you made me tear up. :)
    This is absolutely the most darling card of a future fire fighter I have EVER seen and I can't wait to skype the hubby and show him. :D
    Thank you SO much my very dear friend.
    Oh and kudos to you for bearing the hardship of a trip to Hawaii. I know it's a terrible sacrifice that you're making what with all the sun, relaxation, copic coloring, but we here back at home appreciate you taking this one for the team! I know you'd much rather be here watching it snow! LOL
    Hugs to you and have a WONDERFUL time.
    Lisa xx

  5. Mo Manning has the sweetest images and you have created magic with this one, Marie. I really enjoyed your post today except one thing ... I DIDN'T NEED TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE IN HAWAII!!!! Hope you have a great time (who wouldn't in Hawaii?!) and a safe trip home.

  6. Marie, this is just SO fab! I LOVE your colouring, I was just sitting there thinking how fab it was and then saw that you apologised for it...what?!! It's fab!

  7. Update: He LOVES IT!!!!! :D I witness the huge smile on his face when he saw it.

  8. Hi Marie,
    wow I just love how you have coloured this cute image.
    The colours are amazing.
    Gorgeous work dear.
