Today, Nana Vic posted a freebie for valentine's day on her Facebook page here

I love her quirky images, and as I got a chance to put my feet up and do some colouring today (t was too hot to do anything else), I made this card:


I used a variety of alcohol markers (Copic/Spectrum Noir/Graph'It) to colour the image:

I created the sentiment in MS Word Art, and added red CS mas, and a satin ribbon and bow.

The freebie is available until 10 February so make sure you grab it while you can!

I would like to add my card to the following challenges:


  1. Oh my goodness!! What cute owls!! Your colouring is absolutely fantastic!! Hugs

  2. Whenever I count my blessings, I always count you twice because friends like you are rare. Not only do you provide all that know you with inspiration by sharing your artistic abilities with us but your generosity and time that you give to others goes beyond the average friend....I'm not sucking up to you Jen, I just don't tell you enough how much I appreciate your friendship and support....Now onto this 'Crazy Love Owls' card that you created. I could say the normal stuff like, how amazing it is (which of course it is) but I'd rather focus on what makes this card special to me. I'm going to have to rethink the title 'Queen of sequins and beads' and perhaps add in there somewhere 'Queen and Master of the white highlighter' as how you've make this digital pop with it is spot on. The sentiment and bush appear to be glittering but after closer inspection I can see the hundreds of little white dots you've so carefully placed. (I'm going to yoink that idea for a future project). Your colour pallet is very easy on the eyes and yet your card screams, CUTE CUTE CUTE....Thank you for sharing and I'm so glad that today was too hot to do anything else. I win and we all win by being able to look through your window and into your creative soul. *Coughs* I nearly choked on my own poeticness. <-says it's not a word but it should be *Laughs* Talk soon. *Hugs*
