How do I hit send?


That is the 'sentiment' I wrote inside of this card for my son who turns 20 years old tomorrow! I chose this image NOT because he is a constant texter, but rather because he does NOT text, I don't think he even knows how to do it!

Seriously, he DOES NOT use a cell phone! What's with that? Who does NOT use a cell phone? I should not complain because the only reason I have an iPhone is because I got it on his student plan 'cause that was the ONLY way I could cost justify it here in Canada. The rates here are totally INSANE!

Anyhooooo....I knew I wanted to give this card to my text-challenged son for his b'day so I asked his twin bro' for some help in something witty to write inside and he suggested "How do I hit send?"...LOL! I'm pretty sure this comes from a personal experience between the two of them because when I asked if he would get it, Alex just smiled and said 'oh ya'.

Gotta luv Derek! So acutely intelligent in things that interest him, and void of a clue in things he thinks that don't matter. Takes after his Mom in that way!

The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and printed on Bella's bestest paper. I have an Epson printer and have never had any trouble with copics bleeding on my printed images. I do not have all the copics used, but I will say to get that 'grungy' jean look I used B41, 93, 95, 97 and E41. (the E41 gave it the grunge)

I'll admit...that face might not look like Derek, but those jeans sure do!

Hi Linda,

I am a huge fan of yours. Your work is sensational. I would love to see you teach your style of coloring on the web. I would sign up and part with some cash in a heartbeat to learn from you. Copics, chalks, pencils, tombows and jelly roll pens. You blend them all so very well together. The final result is always spectacular.
Thanks so very much for sharing.
