Love You, Grandpa...

Hello folks!  Happy Saturday!  It's been dreary and raining all day today, but I did get some errands done and made a couple of cards.  Woot!  Check out the link above...I have some CTMH acrylic stamp sets for sale.  :O)

The card I'm showing this evening was made with Grandpa Bear from Wink Wink Ink.  He's a real sweetie.  I don't get to see my Grandpa very often, so I thought he'd enjoy a card...what better card than one that showcases this sweetie (there is also a Grandma Bear)?  My Grandpa is the best and I love him to pieces!  I totally screwed up the coloring job on this one.  I went to get rid of some gray from around his head since I got a little crazy...what happened?  The damn Copic blender spat a huge blob right on his left jawline and spread out from there.  GAH!!!  Seriously?  I think I did a pretty good job of fixing it though.  I wasn't about to start over!  I also used the sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You...they always have awesome sketches!  Yeehaw!


Be sure to check out the Wink Wink Ink Shop...Melanie has AWESOME digis for you!  :O)  Don't forget your FREEBIE image either!  It's only for a limited time!

Wow, Lelia! I totally don't see anything on this messed up (and I looked close)! You did an awesome fix (I'm guessing, since I don't see a thing)! The card is just SO sweet and special! Your Grandpa is going to love it!

You did a very good job fixing it because we can't tell at all. Your Grandpa is going to love his card from his very talented g/daughter :)
Thanks for joining us at 2S4Y this week

Gorgeous card Lelia - you did a brilliant job of fixing the problem caused by your blender pen. I honestly wouldn't have known you'd had a problem with it! Thank you for sharing it with us at Crafty Ann's and I very much hope we'll see you for the blog hop on the 21st too.

Wow - you must have really done a great job fixing your booboo, because I don't see it, either! Fantastic card!!! Love the idea that you're giving it to your grandpa. How sweet!

Lelia, I LOVE him in blue! What a gorgeous card! This little guy is special to me cuz he looks just like my Grandpa who has been gone since I was 16. And I don't see a thing wrong with the coloring either! Nice save! ;o)
