February Birthday Cards

I went to a Copics colouring class last February that included a kit for this card.
I intended to give it to my mother for her birthday last year but did not finish it,
so here it is a year later...all done.

Happy Birthday Mom
My downfall with copics is mostly hair and blending the shades. but I think it is getting better. I either do too much or not enough, someday I'll get it just right.

The second February birthday is for my son in law....hope he likes this one.
The hot air balloon stamp is from My Creative Times (link below) and I paper pieced the balloon and coloured the basket with copics.  The clouds is a die cut from My Creative Times. The sentiment is a Bug cut from the Scrapping Bug. that I had for years from my stash.

Happy Birthday John
That's all for now....have a great day.

I am totally the same way with copics. I think you did a great job ! I really like the paper pieced balloon, I think your SIL will really like it.

Lovely cards MaryAnn. And your coloring is quite nice. I haven't touched my markers for so long.... I miss it. Not enough hours in a day (when you are working...LOL) to do the things you would rather do.
