More thank you's

A wonderful thing about having a loving family is that your daughter gets showered with presents at the holidays. This means lots of thank you cards. I didn't make my own cards last year, so I didn't realize that I'd need to be stocking up on a thank you cards. So I've been making thank you's like mad this week. I have two to share with you today.

Anne of Green Gables is my FAVORITE book. When I saw this image "Prince Edward Island" by Mo Manning, I fell in love. I'm still watching lots of Suzanne Dean copic videos on YouTube and have been trying to put some of the coloring into practice. I used Basic Gray papers and Prima flowers.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Meredith Scraps - coloring challenge
2. Phindy's Place #36 - thank you cards
4. Digital Tuesday #91 - anything goes

My thank you features Tilda. I was trying a new coloring technique following Suzanne Dean's instructions for coloring with Copics like distress inks. I didn't have all the colors I needed, but I'm still really happy with the way it turned out. The paper is Basic Grey. I added Stickles and glitter glue around the image and on her crown and slip.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenge:
Papertake Weekly - Be Thankful

Happy Crafting!
