Jennifer McGuire butterflies

When I saw Jennifer McGuire`s amazing butterflies on her blog I had to start making some immediately! I want to send these in for the card drive she is hosting. Isn`t she an angel? Here are my cards - a great way to practice with my copics:






I printed the butterflies from the Hero Arts digi kits "Flutterbies" and "Winged Friends" in different sizes onto a sheet of cardstock and started coloring. So fun! I hope to be able to make some more cards - Winter is having a card drive, too and I`d love to support this, too...

Have a happy Monday and thank you for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Wow - great minds think alike... I printed a lot of the Flutterbies and have been colouring in... only have 11 Copics and only two lots in colours that are of the same family... so nothing as awesome as these Vanessa. Love the kraft and colours together...Great cards!
