#1 Teacher

As promised yesterday, I finally put my DSO card together.
I have to say the DCWV paper is perfect for this card, and that ribbon...
I JUST HAD TO USE IT.
You won't believe where I got it from... a $1 store.
I LOVE when I find stuff like this and can get it so cheap.

This weeks image is one of the newest images from
Digital Stamp Oasis
Isn't this teacher and little Sammy Squirrel just adorable.
I had a little trouble coloring it, because I need some copic
refills. I almost wanted to scream when I realized that my 2 favorite shades
of gray are in desperate need of a refill.
When I checked my refills, I was annoyed to find that I didn't have the gray colors.

Soooo, I had to improvise, and I added some color using my Twinkling H2O's.
Not the BEST result, but I think it seems to do the trick
when you're in a bind.
Oh my ...
I just saw that on the "Digital Tuesday Challenge" blog
their challenge is to make a card for a teacher.
When I originally chose this image, and colored it
I had no idea that was what the challenge was going to be this week.
So I guess I can enter this card there just for kicks.
Why not?

Lovely card :)
I know how you feel, all my grey copics have run out too so can't colour any of my DSO squirrels grey!
You did a great job without the grey copics though :)
