My 200th Card of 2009

Wow! 200 cards. Wonder if I should aim for 300? Most of these cards went to my MIL and SIL (I certainly do not have 200 cards lying around). Some also went for swaps and not all of them have been completed since I'm still waiting on some of the last to trickle in.

I colored this image from Bee Crafty with my PrismaColor markers. I used the colorless blender to remove some color around the knees since that's how my boys' jeans always end up. I followed sketch #63 at Friday Sketchers and the color inspiration came from Use it Challenge #21 (I didn't use an old tool that hasn't been used in long time nor did I add any stickers so it doesn't qualify completely for their blog challenge). I didn't think a butterfly or flower fit a boyish card so I added gold eyeshadow powder with Matte Accents to fill in the center of the circle.

Thanks for looking,

What a cute stamp image. I like how you colored (or uncolored) the knees.

GO FOR 300!
