FS# 41 & Copic Colour Challenge # 2....Some Exciting News....Hello Holly!

Hey!!! I am so happy to play along with Friday Sketchers this week! It's been a few weeks since I've joined the fun that is FS and I was starting to get the shakes, lol! That is what happens when I don't get my FS fix,smile!!! I followed Kristine's awesome sketch and teamed this sketch up with the Copic Colour Challenge and I'm sooooo super psyched about this new challenge blog cuz I love my Copics. I had a blast playing along! What a fabulous colour combo this week :
B02 - Robin's Egg Blue
R05 - Salmon Red
YG23 - New Leaf

Now, I know I teased you bit with some exciting news! Can you guess what it is!? Yes, it is about a DT and yes, it has to do with lovely Holly from, Holly & Madison fame, featured on my card today!!!! Oh, Okay, I won't keep you waiting any longer!
YAY,!!! I have had one exciting weekend!!!! Karen and Louise asked me to be on the Dottie's World Challenge DT. Karen, the lovely owner of, Charmed Cards & Crafts sent me a very kind e-mail and asked if I would join the team! WOWZERS!!!! Well, I was so thrilled cuz Charmed Cards & Crafts is where you can get Dottie & George, Holly & Madison and Girls About Town images! All super fabulous printable digi-images! So, how could I not jump at this amazing opportunity!!!! Thanks Karen!

Well, I had to print some images ASAP and get colouring. I picked Holly in the Garden! I just love the Holly & Madison images! Of Course, I coloured her with my Copics and added a bit of Stickles for some bling-i-tude! You can never have enough bling...even while gardening,smile! I sponged around the image with my fave Metallic Rub-ons!
Today, I really worked my Colourless marker to lighten up spots and I didn't use any white acrylic paint for highlights, just for a change! I am quite happy with how it turned out and I hope to get some more fab tips when I attend the Copic Certification class in a few weeks! So Looking forward to it!!!

I made my card base 6X6 out some yummy Bazzill bling that I just picked up on Friday at the LSS and it was a perfect match to Salmon Red Copic, yay! I used the Daisey D's paper that I have had in my stash, forever (just love this paper) and I have the co-ordinating cardstock elements so I used the tag and the bracket! All the stitching is faux...used my Kelly Panacci Stitches stamps again and Tim Holtz Corduroy Brown Distress ink! Both sentiment stamps are Kelly Panacci stamps and I stamped them with Memento Rich Coco.
Here are all the colours that I used...not a great pic, I know, can't read all the names and I put them all away before I wrote the names down, darn! Won't do that again,smile!!!
Well, there you have it! Lots of excitement this weekend more than I can bare really,lol! Think I better go make a tea and try to pull myself together,he, he, he!
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!

Oh Tara, I'm so happy for you, such brilliant news, big congrats from me. You'll be a great asset to the DW DT, they're very lucky to get you and I can't wait to see more of your wonderful cards. I'm grinning here from ear to ear, your excitement is contagious and so very sweet, just like you. Your card is stunning, I love the image, the gorgeous paper and colours, nice work with your blender pen. I look forward to hearing your tips from the copic course. I've been doing a bit of stamping for you which is why the card for your Birthday is so very embarrassingly late, so much so I know that it's almost for next year's birthday eek!!!! It will be winging it's away soon. Sorry I haven't been around commenting much this last couple of weeks and hopefully will be back on track soon, thanks so much for the lovely comments you've left for me and as you saw earlier, I even named an image after you, well you and my niece of course tee hee! Let us know when you've come back down to earth Sweetie LOL, take care, hugs, Chris xxx
