Scratch & Cornelia A Thanksgiving Card For Drew

The past few weeks I’ve been seeing this adorable image called Cornelia on blogs. I was intrigued enough to go check her out and discovered the most adorable images at the Saturated Canary Digis site. Of course, I had to buy a few of them!!

Scratch & Cornelia struck a cord with me. I know I’ve mentioned this before that my dad was a sculptor. Maybe it was living in South Dakota but his favorite images to carve were Indian Chiefs. Growing up we would find arrowheads all the time. I wonder what ever  happened to them???

As soon as I saw there was a boy & girl I knew I had to get the pair and make a Thanksgiving card for Drew. A way for him to still feel a connection with his grandfather.

Here is my card. I had made beautiful turquoise flowers to put on but realized he wouldn’t care for flowers so just kept it simple. 🙂

I think one of the reasons I liked Scratch so much he reminds me of Drew. Tall and skinny as a rail! LOL I had to step outside of my box for these images. I’ve never colored dark skin before. It wasn’t as bad as I had anticipated. Usually never is!! Only the second time I’ve colored black hair. That was a little trickier for me.

  1. Your card is great. I love the beads. I don’t know many men that would like flowers. The coloring is great. I don’t have enough copics to try much. Need to find a less expensive way of coloring.

  2. WOW !!! Myrna you did a great job of coloring on this card. I love the touch of adding beads for embellishments for a guy. Drew will love this card.

  3. Fantastic job with the card! Your coloring was great, as well as the paper selections, embellishments, and layout. I’m sure Drew will enjoy this card and would guess it will be one of his all-time favorites.
