Hi guys. Did you make it through your Monday? We did, but boy oh boy is it hot. I want to start off by saying Thank you for all of your encouraging words about Maddie. I try not to talk too much about it, because everyone has something going on in their lives and I would never want to take away from anyone that might have bigger problems than ours. I just have so many possibilities going on in my head as to what might be going on with her and I have to confess they are not good things. I realize that this all could be something simple or nothing more than growing pain. So I am trying desperately to be positive and calm and wait to see what it is before I go off the deep end. lol... So, again thank you all for your sweet words and prayers.
Moving on to my card for today. I actually had my nephew Marshall in mind when I was playing around with this one. He just turned 19 and is very much into Manga and going to Manga conventions... Well, I colored this sweetie up and had a ton of fun playing with her hair...(See Miss Angela's blog for the hair tutorial..) I love, love how her hair came out. I even sent a picture of her to Marshall to see what he thought. He said it was nice. He really liked her hair too. I am trying to catch Marshall when he has some free time. He had a blast trying out my Copics when he came over for my Birthday. I am trying to get him hooked. From what little time he played with them, he seemed to be a natural. We'll see. :D
I have to admit that I really am enjoying the hair and eye coloring. That has always been one of my favorite things to draw and now I can play with colors also. Marshall just moved into his first apartment (much to his Mommy's dismay. He is her listener.) So, I think that I need to send this to him. I am pretty sure that he will enjoy getting it in the mail. Now all I have to do is get Marshall's address.
Ok, guys it is getting to be that time...So I will talk at you tomorrow. Until then, have an AWESOME day. Hugs, Lisa G
