Just a note...

In playing in the Canadian Image Express Swap, I get all kinds of images that I would not normally purchase but have come to love.

I'd never heard of Sugar Nellies until I started playing on that thread and I've come to love them. When they come up on someone's list, I snag 'em! Guess I should start buying my own - LOL!

This is one such Sugar Nellies called Pen Pal. I took my colours with me when I went to Austin as well as a collection of images to play with. This one was coloured while lounging by the pool in wonderfully warm weather (while everyone back here in Canada was freezing their butts off!)

I coloured her with my Copic markers based on some of the Making Memories papers that I bought while out shopping in Austin one day. Funny thing is, I originally had her hair blonde, but decided that she looked better as a brunette. Gotta love Copics for that! I just coloured right over the blonde - no problem!

Looking at her now, I'm pretty sure I did her for a sketch challenge somewhere, but can't remember where now...that figures - LOL!

I used my SU! Word Window punch for the handwritten "Just a Note" sentiment.

What do you think?
