Next up, I have Ellie Loves Ice Cream... that look on her face is hilarious, and I love the sentiment that comes in this set! I've used some paper from the Echo Park Everyday Eclectic pad, because I thought it looked just like scoops of ice cream! Her dress is paper pieced, but that was to cover up the horrible coloring job I did on it originally! I don't know if I mixed up markers part way through, but the sleeves and the bottom of the dress came out completely different shades of pink! Paper piecing was an easy cover up!

Sport Ellie's hair is fabulous!! Love the shading, too!! :))

Ellie loves ice cream cracks me up just like you said!!! Ice cream is pretty much my favorite thing & I'm pretty sure I look exactly like that when someone hands me a cone or a scoop!!!! Lol ;)) Great coloring on that sweetie, as well !!!

I've been there with the dress mess... My 4th of July card w/ cake pop Fhiona -- I changed her "outfit" a few times by paper piecing... But, I kept coloring it like the stubborn fool I am!!
Ha! I tried a few diff colors til I was satisfied -- now she has a whole wardrobe !!! ;) ;) ;)

Both cards are just adorable. I love little Sport Ellie, but Ellie Loves Ice Cream is SO cute. I envy the ability to paper piece .... I just don't have the patience. If I screw up the coloring, I just trash the whole thing. Not the best idea, but I just can't make myself do the cutting for the piecing. You did an awesome job on both cards and images. I just love them.

Fantastic colouring with copics - if you don't already, you should teach classes on copic colouring. Both cards are amazing!

Both your cards are cute but I especially like Ellie likes Ice Cream and the expression on her face. Great covering up the mistake by paper piecing. I always get the hair wrong.....guess I can't hide it that way :lol:
