Life Is Sweeter

Hi all!  Today I've got a special birthday card to share with you.  My mom has been working really hard and has lost about 60 lbs so far on her fitness journey so for her birthday card I wanted to do something fun that would kind of celebrate that.  I knew that Krista from Saturated Canary has a bunch of cute fitness related images so I grabbed this one called Jamie Workout to use on my mom's card.  I colored her up with my Copics and paired her with some fun papers from MME and DCWV that were this pretty teal color.  I'm pleased with how it turned out and even more please with the response- when my mom saw it she said 'That's going to be me pretty soon!' which is exactly what I was hoping for!  Thanks so much for stopping by to pay me a visit- I hope everyone has a great week!

Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R30, R21, BV31, BV34
Hair: E70, E74, E47, E79, E49
Clothes: BG11, BG53, BG57, BG78, BV29
Weights: T0, T1, T3, T5, R29, RV99
