Watering Can Scene

 Hello Friends!!

Impression Obsession's challenge this week  is "I am thankful for........" 
Well, I am thankful for so many things, my family, my friends, life and so much more!  However today I am most thankful for heat and beautiful weather!  Last week it was snowing!  We were still wearing our winter woolies and today we had a record heat day with the sprinkler on for the kids to play in.  I could actually sit outside and color and image.  YEAH!!

I colored up this fabulous Watering Can Scene with Copics and kept the card very simple. I added a wee bit of Stardust stickles to the butterfly and flower centers.

  2. Beautiful card. Love your coloring :)

  3. This is gorgeous Ellen. I love the image and your colouring is so beautiful.
    Let's hope the good weather continues for a while
    hugs Sue xx

  4. Hi Ellen, Beautiful card with gorgeous colouring, looks like a painting. And wow what a difference in your weather... enjoy! Hugs, Shirleyxx

  5. Wow, you did a fabulous job colouring this image. I'm thankful for the sun too. It was a long winter.

  6. This is a lovely card Ellen, such a gorgeous scene. It sounds like your weather is as variable as ours at the moment - we just need to make the most of it when it's nice!

  7. Your scene is just beautiful and, of course, colored perfectly.

    Hope your weather stays warm. That is quite a variation in the weather. Wow! Our weather down south in the U.S. is so weird. I've never seen a Spring this cold. And, it is so rainy, I can't even get flowers planted. Ugh!!

    Have a great week, my friend.

  8. Love that image, Ellen! As always your coloring is amazing! Our weather very closely resembles yours except your temps have been somewhat higher. Yes, the snow a week ago was not exactly something to be thankful for was it? Oh well...moving on to brighter days and some heat...spring may actually have arrived here on the prairies...or perhaps summer????

    Have a wonderful week!

  20. Beautiful card! Thank you for joining us at Sister Act Card Challenge!

  21. A gorgeous scene and you have colored it beautifully.

  22. WOW!!!! What a gorgeous scene, Ellen!!!! Your coloring is fabulous...I just love every little detail!!!!

  23. Yeah! Ellen, sounds like you are in MT with that weather season report. Small shower hit here today. Grass is peaking through drought soil. Praying for more rain in cells not floods like two years ago. Still in flood recovery mode here as dikes, river irrigation outlets, and pumping units are being fitted for a cropping summer. Silt continues to come to the surface ''everywhere'' so it seems. More mulch/ humus. That watering can fine art generated all this feedback since farms do feed USA and the world....gotta have happy farmers with solid cropping ability. Good go, girl! Clean water is so scarce in some continents! News to inform will help generate students and retireds who can leverage dollars to invent, transport and install units to which locals may be made familiar - trained to maintain and hopefully encourage the nextdoor village to build and maintain. Living water is best. Keep Looking UP! mt23stamperatyaho
