Good morning and TGIF! I have an Easter card to share with you today. I used one of the images that Squigglefly will be releasing tomorrow. This one is drawn by Chesney Young and is called Nibbles With Carrot - and it's a pretty big carrot that little Nibbles has found!

I used colored pencils to color this little guy. I know, you'd think after just taking the Copic class I'd at least have a card using Copics to show you, but I'm taking a little time to let the lessons I learned soak in. I'll have a Copic colored card for you soon. Anyway, I blended the colored pencils with odorless mineral spirits and then I chalked a little blue in the sky behind him. I added some crystal effects to his eyes. The sentiment is from a Clearly Stampendous set.
I used a blossoms Nestablities die to cut the image and the layer behind it out. I wanted to add some ribbon but couldn't find a place to do it that looked right, so I ended up just leaving it alone. Sometimes simple is best, but doesn't it need something else; a flower maybe?
There are some more wonderful images being released along with Nibbles at Squigglefly tomorrow. You may have seen some of them through sneak peeks from the design team. There are a lot of wonderful ones for Easter and spring in general.
I can't believe that it's already time to change our clocks back! I hate changing the clocks in the spring - it takes me forever to adjust and as you already know getting extra hours of sunshine isn't my cup of tea! I know most of you are ready for it though, so I guess I can be happy for you - LOL!
Wishing you a wonderful day, and thanks for looking!
