This is my second post today. Please scroll down for the PWCO creation.
WOW! What a week I've had. I've been really blessed to add a few new banner's to my sidebar. I recently became Copic Certified. What an amazing class that was. I have been practicing what I learned. The best bit of advice I have heard so far in regards to coloring is to do what works best for you. Sure, you need the knowledge and there are many different techniques, but I think it's more important to take what you learn and kind of "make it your own" so to speak. Anyways, I hope to be able to teach a few classes on this in my area in the fall. I'm taking the summer to practice up. So, a New Copic Certified Banner is now on my blog.
This week I had a really fabulous stroke of luck over at Moxie Fab World. I WON the new Sketch issue....EEK! And Cath gave me a "shout out" for the creation for the Tuesday Trigger. That card also got me a spot in the Top 5 over at Hope Stamps Eternal Cupcake Challenge. Woo hoo!
As if that wasn't enough....I got another shout out from Julee (VerveGirl) whom I adore for my Project Parade card using that little ribbon rose I did a tutorial on last week. I am on Cloud Nine people. Really! That's almost better than winning $25 in Verve cash...well, almost;)
When you feel this blessed you have to pay it forward. Today I'm making dinner for a family at our church who is having a bit of a rough time. So, I'm doing a bit there. I may have to come up with some other way here on the blog. I need to think about that for a bit. So stay tuned.
I do have another card to share today.
This was my really quick creation using some new crinkle ribbon and a CAS sketch. A super easy, fun card. I used so many different stamp companies on this.....Verve, PTI, Heidi Grace and MFT all played together to make this creation. I also did something I haven't done before. I stamped using SMOOCH. Did you know you can apply that directly to your stamp as an ink. I never knew.... It's fun! My flowers and the Mother's Day greeting are all stamped in Taffy Smooch. LOVE it~! If you haven't tried this....Go...Do it....Now. It gives such a pretty shimmer to your image. I added tiny rhinestones to the center of each flower and used up my scrap of Origins paper. I'm so proud of how much I am using my scraps.
Ok, off to finish my Beef and Noodles. That is one thing I can actually cook. I also have a great recipe that I found this week to share....later. I've got a billion things to do now.
Thanks for popping in!
