purple gladiola

Hello crafty friends!

We made it through last nights storm that rolled through the southeast.  We were kept awake by  1) the thunder, 2) the dog (who is terrified of thunderstorms and 3) the emergency alert radio that seemed to go off every hour telling us there are thunderstorms, severe thunderstorms, flooding, severe flooding, and tornado warnings.   While I am grateful that we have this emergency alert system and more so that we suffered no damage,  being woken up 5 times overnight for these alerts makes for a sleepless night.  I wish we could program the radio to let us know only that a tornado is in our area.

Anyway, putting aside the dreary weather I made this card to brighten up the day.  The image is from Power Poppy, the paper from Basic Grey’s Eva line.  It was colored with the following copic markers:  V01, V06, V09, YG91, YG93, YG95 and Y08.  Since the  “V” series markers are very vibrant I did a lot of “tip to tip” blending.


Of course, after I was done with the coloring I got the idea to “color” the Wonderful part of the sentiment with a copic marker and frankly ruined the card!!  Oh well!!

Thanks for stopping by today!
