Heat of Summer Copic Coloring Contest...

Hi guys,
     I am so happy to be able to share my card with you today.  We have been in a HEAT WAVE for quite a time now, so my evenings at home have been spent eating dinners consisting of PB&J with Jerry and the M&Ms (didn't want to add heat by using the oven) and sitting with all our lights off so that our air conditioner doesn't have to work overtime just to keep our house cool.  We have had the same air conditioner for over 7 years now, and I really don't want to have to replace it this year. We aren't using our TV either as that too adds more heat than you would think.  Thankfully we all have either a Nook or a Kindle to use, so it really isn't as bad as it sounds.  Needless to say, you don't get much crafting done without the lights on.  At least I don't.
     So, I decided that no matter what I was going to get some card making/coloring in today!  :O)  I was up by 5:15 AM and really wanted to do something crafty.  :O)    I was looking around on Instagram (my newest addiction) and I found that is having a contest all August long. They are providing digi stamps to play with as well.  One of the stamps at the moment is this fantastic stamp by Chihiro Howe call 'Hawaiian Girl' and you just know I love to color faces and eyes. I was HOOKED right there!
     My first thought (because of the flower in her hair, I had not read what her name was.) was that she had to have a tan.  Then because of the flower in her hair she just looked like she was on vacation.  Well, I don't know about you, but if I was on vacation in Hawaii you can bet I would be sending my friends and family a ton of post cards.  Yep, I would be loving all that wonderful sunshine, palm trees and that wonderful tropical feel to the whole vacation.
     So as you can see I pulled out my LF set including the die of 'Say Cheese' and came up my 'missing you' card.  I am very happy with how she turned out.  Be sure to head over to and join in all the fun they have planned for August.  I know that I am going to be making a couple different cards with her as you can enter more than once and she was so much fun for me to color.
     Hope you are all having a wonderful beginning to you August.  Talk at you later.
Hugs Lisa G

A cute image're coloring is great! I love all of the epoxy dots...I can never find them when I'm out shopping, maybe I should look a little harder.
