Ellen Taylor ~You are here

My card was inspired by an old song by the Irish Rovers, from way back, called "The Unicorn Song".  Here have a listen......

 I colored up this fabulous Unicorn H1935 , by artist Gary Robertson, with Radiant Neon Inks and a few Copic markers.  

Also....a BIG Happy birthday to our fearless and fun leader, Mitra!! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!

  1. Ellen, your card is super and I had the pleasure of listening to "The Unicorn Song" this morning. :-) Love your lilies and rabbits and, of course, the star of the show, the unicorn.

  2. Hi Ellen! wow - great coloring on this wonderfully fanciful unicorn stamping!

  3. Great card and coloring of this fun image.

  4. So beautiful and love that wonderful image.

  5. A lovely card, coloring is super.

  6. This is a fabulous card Ellen, such a beautiful image.

  7. El dahling, I'm surprised you didn't use a submarine for this challenge. A yellow submarine by the you-know-who group might have worked well too. I always give credit where credit is due and this card exemplifies your wonderful creativity. It started with a song and look where you took that concept.. You are just one heck of a talented lady. Hey, your annual stamp jam is just around the corner. Hope all works out well with the sleeping accommodations. remember, once a Marriot comes to town, let me know! I just thought of you today ~ wondering how you're doing. We're leaving for CA on Saturday and will be gone 7 days. I promise, I really do promise, I'll call you after that and after your huge annual event. Love and hugs. Over and out.

  8. Beautiful design Ellen, very creative ! I hope you are doing well and keeping your head above. Take good care, Hugs, Shirleyxx

  9. Hi Ellen! Lovely card! Are you going fishing this summer? We have booked at Newmart for the 1st week in July this year. (I finally found those IO stamps that I needed!!) I can't wait to ink them.


Thank you for your comments, I read and appreciate each one - you make my day!
