Thank You! at Meljen's Designs.

Good morning! Thursday!  Woot!!  And I've been so busy at work.. a bit behind even and can't seem to get back caught up. So.. I will go in today and plug along. I can only do what I can! Last night I took Bailey, one of Bailey's friends, Michael and my sister to see the latest installment of The Hunger Games. WellStar has given us the ability to see each of these new releases a couple of days before the release and this one was no exception. The kids were really excited. Now they will be at school bragging about seeing the movie two days before it comes out LOL We had a great time... It was good to spend some time with my sister.

Today we are on Challenge #237 at Meljen's Designs! Our theme this time is Thank You! And I really had to figure out what the heck to do.. so this is what I came up with:

I made three of these little star cards using Army Bear. You can find him at the Meljen's Designs Shop. The star shape is from an SVG file. The die cut around the image is a Spellbinders die. Thank you is stamped. He is colored with Copic markers.. all three of them. I added the gems and the star and some netting behind the image.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Bear 1 Camo: E31, E35; W3, W5, W7; YG93, G94, G99
  • Bear 2 Camo: E25, E27, E29; W3, W5, W7; YG93, YG95, YG99
  • Bear 3 Camo: @00, W1, W3; W2, W4, W6; W5, W7, W9
  • Bear: E31, E34, E35, E37
  • Boots and Belts: C1, C3, C5, C7, C9
  • Flag: B21, B24, B26; R22, R24, R46
  • Cheeks: R20, R22
