As Friday sneaks up on us new Copic classes are opening in both Edmonton and Columbus.  Check out all the details HERE!

Calvinball is in full swing at Get It Scrapped and I am pleased that I have actually gotten some scrapping done!  8 pages and lots of coloring as part of the 30 day color challenge has me up to a total of 40 points!  This is a pittance in comparison to the leaders, but I am having fun and it has kept me motivated to use those spare minutes!  The pages are simple quick ones here are a couple to see;

I am busy coloring in St. Louis today!  Hope you all are having a colorful/scrappy weekend!

January 27, 2015 |  by  |  Cards, Challenges, Copics  |  1 Comment

Well I figured I would keep coloring while I was n a roll so here is another card I completed for the on-going challenges over at My Favorite Things. ┬áThis is my interpretation of this week’s sketch challenge:

Sketch 212 MFT


I kept it pretty simple today, to me the fun part was using the acorns to form my scallop at the bottom edge. ­čÖé Supplies: ┬ácardstock; Bazzill Basics and American Crafts, ink; Memento (Rich Cocoa) ┬áand Copic (YG61, YG63, E50, E53, E55, E57, E59), burlap banner; Little Yellow Bicycle.

We are coming down to wire for my Copic Workshops in Seattle.  If you or anyone you know live in the area and would like to join me for a half day, full day or even two full days of coloring fun make sure to get signed up NOW before it is too late.

Happy Coloring!

Yep I am still having fun here with coloring. ┬áThese are such easy fun challenges at My Favorite Things, I can see myself coming back for more of these ­čÖé ┬áBesides it get’s me building up my card stash which is always a good thing to have on hand. ┬áThe color challenge gives us 4 colors we need to incorporate on a card. ┬áThe image I colored and added to my card is really just for fun. ┬áthe little raccoon really has nothing to do sentiment, but he is too cute!
