Can You See Me Now?






I have a dear friend who has failing eyesight. She struggles daily to see things that you and I take for granted. She mentioned to me that she has such a hard time finding her checkbooks, (hers, husbands, & churches). All of them are a dark blue/black color and once they are in her purse or lying on a dark surface that she can not see them. I decided to make her bright and colorful check book covers so she would not have that problem. I  made each one a different color so she could tell each one apart. It was a simple project that I hope will brighten her day. I used two images from Saturated Canary and a Magnolia. I colored the images with Copics and Twin markers. I used simple flat embellishments since I wanted the checkbooks to lay flat! 
My Song: Lean On Me
Sometimes in our lives
We all have pain, we all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow
Lean on me when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend, I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need somebody to lean on
