Happy Birthday Mum/Grandma

Just a short post to say
 Happy Birthday to my lovely Mum. 
Here's the card I made her. 

Both of my daughters chose this image India with laptop from Mo Manning.
Hair E37, E35, E33, E31, E50
Clothes and laptop V17, V15, V12, C9, C7, C5, C3
Chair E31, E35, E33, YR00, YR000
Cat and carpet, C3, C2, C1
 Paper My Minds Eye - Tangerine from Scrap Therapy
White seam binding coloured with YR00 and rose from Wild Orchid Crafts

And here is the card my daughter Meg made using copics.  I wasn't sitting with her when she did this but I think she is attempting shading by the look of those darker colours impressive for a 5 year old. 
My other daughter Nell made her a card with fish on it but I forgot to take a photo of it (Sorry Nell).
Hope your having a wonderful birthday Mum. 
love all of us

    Glad to meet you and you have a great eye for color and I love your card. But I think you should move over because your daughter at 5 years old can really rock when it comes to coloring!!! I also have just been using Copic markers for about a year now - dont you just love them! Everything else has dust on it on my work table! Check out my blog if you like - I joined to follow you. Hugs
