All Occasion Card Using Ching Chou Kuik "Time Will Tell" and CTMH Hello Lovely Paper

Hello friends.  I am working on being more brave in my coloring.  I normally choose images that do not have a lot of little details.  They have always intimidated me in the past.  Plus, my vision requires a magnifying lamp; but even then it is hard to see those small designs; and even harder to color them and stay within the lines.  LOL!   

I own approximately 2000 digis, last count; and continue adding to my collection.  I know that is crazy; but I love so many artists and their creations. I want to support them in their business; even if I will never be able to create with all of them.

I have had this gorgeous digi for quite a while now; and didn't think I could color her. I want to encourage you to try as well.  You just take one step at a time and eventually you realize it is completely colored.  It is always a surprise to me when I finish.  LOL!  

It is time for another Inspiration Post and I am using this gorgeous image  Ching-Chou Kuik "Time Will Tell".  Our topic is "Use At least Two Ribbons".  I loved coloring her and very happy that I tried it.  I was so tempted to choose another digi that appeared easier; but this one isn't that hard after all.  It is much prettier in person; but some colors don't photograph very well.

Path of Positivity Challenge - The Beauty of Nature - Again, I have a card with nature all over it.  I love to sit and look at the flowers, the butterflies, birds, trees, etc.  I think this image is just sitting and thinking about how awesome it is to be in nature.  We take so much for granite.  When I ride my bike; I am in awe of how quickly the scenery changes in just a few days.  I always see more than I saw the day before.  Take time to "Stop and Smell the Flowers" no matter what you are doing.  It will be worth it and might prolong your life.
