"Go Nuts"

My goodness, it's May 1 already. Didn't we just get through the Christmas holidays a short time ago? It's also time for another Copic Challenge, and this one is one that will probably stretch you. It did me, but that's why it's called a CHALLENGE. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?! Our sponsor is LOTV (Lili of the Valley) and the challenge is creating clouds. Mary has posted some great tutorials on the Copic site so be sure to check them out and then give it a try. My image is called "Little Acorn", and I chose this one immediately because my 2-year-old grandson has been going around singing the "I'm a nut.." song. I decided this would have to be his birthday card for his 3rd birthday in June. The balloons are carrying away the little fella in his acorn so it worked out nicely to feature the sky challenge. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and I was glad I had it to put with this card. Be sure to check out what the rest of our talented DT has come up with, and please note that we welcome a new DT member, Cheryl Valadez. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely beginning to the month of May.
