Giving Thanks, and a little praise too

Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing great. I'm so happy that today is the official start of Fall! Now the weather just needs to catch up. It's still a little warm for my taste.

With all the hoopla we had over the new images Crissy has contributed to Squigglefly I thought I'd take a little time today to praise another of the fabulous artists they have.
Many of you know that Lynne Stansbery is my sister.

When Squigglefly first came to be, I asked Lynne if I could go through some of her old sketch books to see if there were any images that might be good for digital stamps and I found plenty! First Haircut is one that I found in her sketch book that she drew many years ago.

Now she is drawing on a regular basis and her scenes have become very popular. I love that she can draw something as detailed as Cabin Retreat and something as fun as The Devil Made Me Do It.

Today's card uses a beautiful cornucopia she drew and I hope my coloring does it justice.

I colored this with copic markers and did a little highlighting with a white gel pen. The rest is pretty self explanatory. The words were computer generated. I hope you like it and I hope she does too!

Remember that tomorrow is card giveaway day, so be sure to come back for that! Have a great day, and thanks for looking!

Hello Holly! Your sister does beautiful work. I will need to go check out her designs as I am getting ready to get back into the swing since returning from vacation. And YOU did an awesome job of coloring...I loved your background paper with its embossing (course you know I am addicted to embossing!). The whole card is awesome Holly. :)

Holly this is beautiful, you did a wonderful coloring job on it. I so love the first haircut image that your sister drew one of my absolute fave's.

I didn't know that Lynne is your sister. What a pleasant surprise. You two certainly are talented. How fun that must be for your sister to draw the image and then see your interpretation of it.

Lynne thanks so much for your wonderful images.
