Luka with Truck

Happy Sunday, my friends! Here is a card that I made using La La Land Crafts's adorable Luka with Truck.


Isn't he cute? Somehow I just thought that his little truck should be red. =)


I paired him with the lovely Wander collection from BasicGrey. I used Tim Holtz's fun scallop die for one of the patterned paper. When my stitching get a little wonky, I decided to make it more "intentional." =)


The ticket border die and sentiment stamp are from Papertrey Ink.

A few of you have asked me more than once about making either card making or Copic coloring videos. As you can tell, I have been avoiding answer that question. LOL! Sorry about that, but I am truly humbled by your requests.

First of all, I don't think my coloring is good enough. Second of all, I am not even Copic certified! I am not going to lie and tell you that we don't have a video camera. We got one for the sole reason of filming our cats a few years ago. =)

The other reason is that my Mac is very old (about seven years) and I am worried that it could die any time and can't handle the editing. And really! I most afraid that I will bored you! I learned (and still learning) most of my coloring from Suzanne Dean's videos and lots of practice. Here is a link to her videos. Hope it helps.

I know I have been able to answer most of your questions until now. I know this one is going to disappoint you. Hope one day I could overcome my camera shyness (or shyness in general) and be able to make a video. Thank you so much for all your compliments on my coloring. =)

That's all for today. Hope your weekend is fabulous!
