I've never made a one layer card before and have admired so many clean and simple one layer creations in my blog travels. I came across this free digital image at Alison's Free Digital Stamps blog a few weeks ago, it's by Karen's Doodles. When I saw this digital image I thought, "Wow that's gorgeous, what a great challenge it will be for me to color it." I printed it on a half sheet with the intention of a one layer card, it was a pleasure to color with my Copic markers, the "thinking of you" is a clear stamp from the dollar bin at Michael's and I used a Copic multi liner and my clear ruler to make the line around the image.
As I was coloring this image I was thinking about my sister in law Cindy and her husband Bob, they've been going through a rough time. They are working on moving to our little town but Bob has had some health problems and they are stuck in Phoenix, he's hospitalized and she's waiting for him to be released. Most of their furniture is moved here so she's living in a big empty house while she waits. I hope my card will bring them encouragement and a little cheer. I'm excited about having them living closer to us too!
