Thinking Of You

Hi Guys!
I hope you're all having a good week.
Fall hasn't really started here yet, there are some leaves on the ground but its only cos of the drought. So no pretty colors I'm afraid. They're just brown and crinkly. :-)
Anyway! This week's challenge at Mo's is a photo inspiration. Here's the picture, kindly worked up by DT sistah Iulia
I had already worked my card a few weeks ago so I was very pleased that it actually fit with the picture. lol

Oh Dorcas, This is probably one of your greatest colorine. One of these goosebumps cards. Never in my life haven't seen this beautiful leaves colored individually each and every one. I Love This. Hih, Reminds me of my dear son, who would love to do excactly like the boy on the card, if asked to do the garden.

Hi Dorcas. Lovely card again as usual. These tend to be the colors I'm using at the present. The boy looks just like a young man who would take a nap after his work with the leaves. LOL. Hugs, dj

Hey sweetie! Sorry for being a stranger these days, I kind of reduced my computer and crafting time lately; I barely make a card now and then; still wanted to assure you I'm still alive and kiking (do you say this?:)) and just wondering if my card has arrived to you. It seems my hubby forgot about it in the car for a week or so but he sent it for a while, no idea when it should get to you. Just let me know:)
This is one gorgeous card; you know I love this image:) After coloring mine I compared a bit to yours and I saw quite a lot of difference between pencil and copics...I mean A Just love your coloring, hope I could try this too later on when I have some more spare time. Looks quite elaborate.
Hugs, Iulia
PS Love your new pic:)
