Penciled thank you

Good morning! Okay I mentioned that I bought some new colored pencils and here is one of the cards I colored using the new colors. This is Hellebores that is on white card stock. The new shades of Prisma colored pencils I have are three shades of purple and a light pink. Springy colors for this card. 

Very simple with just some larger dots embossed on the background base panel. My sentiment is circle punched for the corner. Some piercing along the side and a button with some twine. Voila!

I do have a few more colored up with my new pencils and that is good because my books arrived today. One of  my other favorite things to do is read, mostly Christian fiction but I do have some history books in there but Christian books are my favorite. It has been YEARS since I read Frank Peretti's This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness books so I bought them again to read. I loan books out a lot and forget to get them back, no biggie except when I am talking to someone about them and then want to read them again. Anyways, I was discussing these books with a friend and that got me to looking for them and they are gone again so I ordered them right away. They arrived courtesy of 2 day shipping... woot woot.... I am a fast reader so it won't take too long, but that means my stamping has to take a back seat. ha ha  A woman only has so many hours in the day ya know. Baseball started this week and their first game isn't for a bit so I have time to read even more. Take advantage of it my husband said.  ;-)  Anyways...  enough babbling. Thanks for stopping by today.

Stacy, you did a beautiful job with your pencils! There are advantages to them, I think. It's been a while since I had mine out. Love the CASness of your card. The embossing makes a nice background. I love to read, too. Once in a while I sit with a cup of coffee in the afternoon and read, but usually save it for evenings. Things changed when I started stamping. Enjoy!

Oh, Stacy, this is one of my favorite digis, and I love the colors you've used and your coloring with pencils. You've mastered them for sure! And I agree that the large-dot embossing makes a beautiful background with the large button and twine! Stunning card! And I used to read a lot and have gotten away from it other than keeping current with World magazine that I love and my devotionals. Good for you for doing more reading before the next sports season!! Hugs, sweet friend, and enjoy!! xoxo
