A few simple pleasures

While on holiday this past weekend I brought with me some images to color in the hotel---can't seem to be a single day without my art!  I had a spinal epidural steroid shot(s) yesterday when I got back in town YIKES-did that hurt-and have to spend the day on and off the heating pad so I thought I would pop into my studio this morning and put together a card or two with the images I colored.  The first one I wanted to share with you is A Few Simple Pleasures showcasing Edwin (my first!) from Magnolia stamps.  I don't know why I hesitated coloring Edwin images because this is my ABSOLUTE fav so far.  I have 5 boys and you would think I would get use to various lizards, geckos, and creatures of all kinds but I have to tell you this even gave me the willies!  I am not a critter person lol.  I love the bluejeans, sneakers, and top-it looks just like one of my boys when they were that age!  A few simple pleasures says it all, don't you think?  Of course I had to add my buttons to finish off my projects.  The rest of the supplies are from my stash of papers and kits.  I colored the image using copic markers on GinaK pure luxury cardstock.  My favorite so far as the markers do not bleed thru and the blending is superb.  Love, Elle
