Both cards are great. The summer beach ball card is so bright and fun. The Winter At Home card is great too. There's something about that set that is just so "warm" and it's a favorite!

Your beach ball card is so bright and cheerful, Chris! I don't have a brayer to try that technique with, but I sure love the effect. I love how you took a winter set and used it for a spring card for the Copic challenge -- very clever, and beautiful coloring!

Christi said...

I love them both but that first card is SO fun!!!

Thanks for sharing your cards! They are wonderful. Love the bright colors on the summer card and the winter colors are so soothing! Beautiful. I don't have a brayer but that looks like a new technique I need to learn how to do! I'm so behind!! Have a blessed day!
