Follow Your Heart

Hi friends and happy hump day. Wednesday's are challenge days at Isabella's Sketchbook. This week our challenge hostess has us celebrating Summer which is perfect since yesterday was the first day of summer here in the Northern Hemisphere. Not that we need an excuse to celebrate fantastic weather.. right?



This image is called "Saturday in the Garden" that you can find at Isabella's shop. For coloring, I used Copic markers and a bit of Prismacolor pencils.

Today's Challenges:

Caardvarks - Embossing
Crafty Ann's - Embossing
Treehouse Thursday Challenge - Tool time (used the Big Shot for embossing)
Diedrich Dare - Summertime



Hope you have a fantastic day.. thanks so much for stopping by. See you manana!

From one Peggy to another that is very nice. I'm hoping to get back to my art once my husband is out of NSU at the hospital...
