Thank you for stopping by!  I really enjoy reading you comments and try to hop by and see your wonderful creations!   I find the cards and projects from all our cyber-friends so inspiring!   

I am off to the ocean for a few days and yes..... my copies and camera will go with me!    

Stop back soon,   


  1. Fantastic coloring and such a cute image. I love your card and I certainly would prefer a little snow to the rain we are getting here. Thanks for sharing with Crafty Boots Challenges! xx Denise

    1. Stunningly effective colouring! Thanks for joining our Animals challenge at Dream Valley. Susie x

  2. Marie, This is so very cute and the coloring is spot on. I love that little image. I am going to try to get to a card for this challenge tomorrow. It's been kind of a busy week for me, but I do need to get some more challenges in. I always look forward to seeing your beautiful creations. They always have to much life to them. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Another fine job with your Copics, Marie. But I really could have done without knowing that you are off to the ocean for a few days!

  4. I love your card Marie and this image is sooo cute. I really like the colours you have used.

    Thanks for joining in the fun at Crafty Boots Challenges.


  5. I would love to be doing what this little guy is doing. The 60 degree weather is just weird! Still hopeful that winter is around the corner, but until then...I have your gorgeous card to admire.
    Have a fun and safe trip my friend!

  6. WOW Marie! The coloring is just out of this world! Amazing card and great inspiration. Hope you have fun at the ocean. Hubby and I just got back from there and there's nothing like it. Hugs!

  8. Marie, this is how you created a scene with this image.

  11. Wow Marie your coloring and shading on this card are spot on! Love how you did the frame too. Gorgeous card. Thanks for leaving me a sweet comment on my blog too.

  12. Marie, your creation is just fabulous!!! I just love your sky and snow!! Awesome, so talented!!! That is a darling image!!!

  13. Marie the way you have blended those colors is amazing. Do you do large paintings too apart from cards? If you dont you should definitely take up painting you will surely create masterpieces.

  14. That's some awesome coloring Marie! Thanks so much for stopping by and your sweet comment. I'm finding out that Google Chrome is so much better than IE or Mozilla Fire Fox. If Blogger keeps making all these changes everyone will probably be forced to switch. It's just another internet program, about the same as IE and Fire Fox. It's free and you can download and install it without making it your primary internet. Then you can still use IE and Fire Fox if you choose.

    Your sky is stunning and looks so real with the gorgeous snow hills. Someday I hope to be just half as good as you are. Have a wonderful weekend! "Hugs"
