Valentine Angel

One of Karen Lockhart's specialities is her darling angel stamps. Her new Valentine Angel is sweet as can be. I colored the Valentine Angel with Copic Sketch markers. I always like to color the angels with red hair. I colored the rest of the image to match the patterned papers. By Bo Bunny, I think. I used a Spellbinder's die to cut out my image. The background and sentiment stamps are from Pine's Simple Valentine stamp set from PTI.
And here are the Copic colors I used:
I hope you're having a great weekend. My brother went back to the hospital yesterday with heart complications. He suffered a heart attack last fall so we're always very worried about him. He should be home today but will need some major bypass surgery in the future.

It's times like these that always make you take a step back to look at what you're really thankful for. I just wanted to let you all know that your kind comments are always appreciated so much. It's so nice to come back to a post and see that you've left some comment love. Thank you so much, my friends.

Hi Michelle,
I just wanted to let you know that my day is not complete without at least one stop by your blog. You have such an upbeat attitude, your creativity is unparalled online and you simple have a good heart that shines through all your endeavors. I can see how much you care for your family and friends and since I hope that others see that in me, I appreciate it all the more. As a heart attack survivor, I know that it can be tough, but that your brother can overcome the crisis. Being supportive is the best thing for him - well, at least it was for me. Please know that I appreciate you very much and share your ideas and blog with friends as I want more people to know how awesome you are! Take care.

Oh Mish, I'm so sorry about your brother. I'm close to my brother too so I can just imagine how you're feeling. Sending you hugs and prayers. Love the redheaded angel - seems appropriate because of your own little Reds.

Hi Michelle,

You never cease to amaze me with your use of color, design, balance, fun. I always look forward to a post from you - you are an inspiration - you are also a good salesperson. many times I have scooted right over to purchase the same stamp, etc. you used, hoping that some of the magic will rub off on me.

I will keep your family in my prayers for healing and comfort. This is a great burden to bear for you all. Wishing you many blessings.

Carol

CeeCee said...

Oh Michelle, I'm sending good vibes and prayers for your brother. I too have a brother that has major health problems and he's practically all the family I got so it's a scary thing to have to go through.
Stay positive and keep creating. It's therapeutic and... well, we like it too :-) Your projects are always so gorgeous.
