Which Way to the Candy ?

This is my first post for Tammy's Scrappin' Corner.  This week's challenge (#34) is Anything Goes/Any Artist.  I am so excited to be working on cards again.  We're still working on my husband's health issues, but at least we found out he doesn't have stomach cancer.  We're still not quite sure what his problem is, but he's definitely improving.  Our grand baby is now two months old and my daughter and he are healthy and doing well.  He's a cutie!  My other daughter, who had a difficult time transitioning to a new job and moving away from home, is doing well and has settled in.  I can finally get back to business. Now I get to enjoy the occasional babysitting!

This image is "Trick or Treat" by OKR Stampede.  Isn't he just adorable.  My fist idea was to color the bandages gray and the bear brown, but I felt like changing it up a bit so I reversed the plan.  I think that's going to be a new goal, to do what I normally wouldn't do.  Experiment!

The digital papers are from Bearly Mine Designs.  The buttons are from JoAnn's.

I, of course, colored him with Copics. 

C00, C0, C1, C2, E30, E31, E33, R20, YR15, YR16, YR18, W00, W0, W1, W3, W5, 100

This is absolutely adorable, really really cute, I love the gentle humor and the image is just perfect. Great coloring, you do a remarkable job with your color selection and the shading. It really came out wonderfully. This is a terrific Halloween card and I'm so happy you shared it with us at Opus Gluei!

Jennifer Scull said...

Diane, your card is just as precious as can be! congratulations on your new DT! I know they are thrilled to have you as part of the team. :)

I'm sorry to hear that your husband has been having health problems. so very thankful it isn't cancer. I'll pray that an answer is found soon, as that adds a stress all of its own when you don't understand the reasons behind feeling so yucky. please forgive me for not being more on top of what has been going on with your family.

know that I'm sending big hugs from over here. :)
