McMahon 5 Designs Day!

Good morning friends! I hope you've had a good week so far. Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am!

As you know today is Thursday. Thursday means a fun, new McMahon 5 Designs release! This week I chose the FairyD image called Younger Lovers to make a card with. I started with a sketch and thought it might look nice with to have the couple as the main image so I proceeded to print the couple on copy paper many times to get them just in the right place. When I finally had it where I wanted it (yes, there is a story here) I started to color the image with my Copics. I was doing a beautiful job...so happy with the woman's hair and the different skin tones so I moved onto the dress. Yeah, for some reason my Copic marker threw up all over my image! The ink just started running out. It was crazy! So I had to go back to the printing out (many, many more times as this was a different day and I hadn't saved the size or placement of the image) the image just right and start coloring all over again. Talk about a test of patience for me! Sheesh! In the end, though, I really like the card. The picture isn't the best but I had some sunlight this afternoon so I decided to use it for my photo. I chose the sentiment "so amazing" as that is how I feel sometimes. So amazed that God gave me just the perfect guy for me.

I have a few challenges that I can submit this card for as well...Saturday Challenge is "couples", The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenges is anything goes, this is another for the Totally Paper Crafts Challenge of add a heart, and Pile It On's theme is Love Is In The Air. Honestly there are a ton more I could enter but I think this is good, don't you?

Well, enjoy the new releases! Make sure you check out what my design team sisters have for ya too!

Well, your card certainly turned out beautiful even if it took some extra patience! Great job!

What a pretty card. Sorry about the copic issues. That has to be so frustrating. I know I have had my share of similar mishaps. It turned out great in the end though. Awesome, rich colors, and I love the pearly hearts.

Hugs,
