Color Me Copic Challenge #2...

Wow...can't believe it's been almost one month since my last post. Went camping the last weekend of July, very minimal internet. I had to miss the TGF's birthday bash! :( Then after camping, we took a family vacation to Disneyland and Legoland! The kids had a blast! Since they are old enough to go around the park with their cousins, hubby and I took it easy. Didn't ride too many things, getting old...LOL! Anyway, two days after our trip, my son had his 10th birthday party! I tried to pre-plan as much as possible, but there's always last minute stuff to do. I didn't really have anything in his party bags that matched his theme (Mario Brothers), so the quickest and easiest thing I could come up with was to wrap the candy bar. This is what I did on Saturday for his party on Sunday!
Pheww, so glad things are slowly getting back to the normal schedule...and back to school next week!

Now let's get to the card. My son's friend's birthday was today, so he wanted me to make a card. card for a 10 year-old boy...that took me a while to think of something. Luckily I came across these images from Tiddly Inks. Not girly, and not too kiddish (if that's a word)! Found a great sketch at Taylored Expressions, and finally came up with this...

Over at Color Me Copic, there's a great challenge and toot on grass by Kim. Was a little worried about the colors I used, but it turned out ok. I didn't add the little flowers though since the card is for a boy.

Card is for the challenges at:
Color Me Copic - Grass Tutorial Challenge
Taylored Expressions - TESC #125
Lollipops Crafts - Pets (oops missed the deadline!)

Thanks for stopping by! ;)
