Okay - So I've jumped in with both feet and decided to combine two challenges into one.

I wanted to do the Copic Colour Challenge and with that decided to do the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.  I didn't have the exact colors for the Copic Colour Challenge - B02, R05, YG23 so instead used B05, R08, YG03.  The colours were interesting to work with but decided on the color combinations below.  I couldn't decide which color combo worked best so ended up making 3 Cards with these colors.  I used my Hello Ian Anya stamp that I got from The Greeting Farm - and I must say I'm crushing on this cute litte guy!

The first one here was done as B05 being the main color used with R08 and YG03 being the supportive colors.  I found it quite hard to match any paper color this but I'm okay with the way it turned out.
This one was YG03 as the main color and I like this one quite a bit better than the blue combo.  The colors were a much better match.

This one is with R08 and I like this one the best.  I think this color combo works best and the layout turned out quite nice.

This was quite a fun challenge adventure for me.  For the rest of Ian I used the following colors:

Hair: E33 and E37  Face/Skin: E00 and E02  Flower: Y08, Y13, Y17

Thanks for Stoppin' by!

ain't so simple!  Okay - here is my card for Tracy's Christmas Challenge #2.  I found myself wanting to bling the dickens out of the card but had to keep reminding myself that this was to be simple.  Not as easy as I thought!  But after putting away all the bling and putting the cards together, Voila - 5 more Christmas Card!  And I quite like the way it turned out!  The stamp is one of my favs from the Angel Company and coloring this cute guy with my Copics was quite fun!  I must admit - square cards are still new for me.  I've been a traditional card gal and last year was my first year making square cards.  But I do like the look of them.....just finding envelopes is the tricky Part!

Here are the cards:

Hope you Enjoy!

Shows ups on Dianne's Blog!  Okay - so not everything will show up here - but we had a blast!  And with getting home late Tuesday/Early Wednesday and being out almost every night this week - there hasn't ben much time for stamping.  Tonight is Oscar night - so there will no stamping tonight either!  Hopefully next week I'll get busy.  I'll be doing Tracy's Christmas Challenge so will have to get on that!

I was able to get to Blick's art store in Vegas and pick up 36 more Copics - so my collection is getting bigger with more options for coloring!  And Tracy and I put in an order Through Scrappin Great Deals so we'll both be getting even more!  They are soo much fun!

Here are some pics from Vegas:

Me and hubby at the grand Canyon.  With it being a bit cloudy - the colors in the canyon were quite amazing, and you really can see the different colors in the canyon walls.

Getting Ready For Vegas

As promised!  This is the card I put together for my Cousin's 40th B-day - the reason we're off to Vegas tomorrow!  And let me tell you - this trip could not have come at a better time!  There has been a lot of family stress for us all and this will be a great week away to re-energize and to have a whole lot of fun!

The image was on of the Images that Enjoli sent me and I've colored it with my Copics.  And again used pattern paper and ribbon - elements I'm really getting used to using!  

There have been a few challenges that I thought I would try and get something submitted for - but this past little has been hectic and then being sick hasn't help my creative juices to be flowing. 

I'm also hoping that this week away will help me reenergize and get going on some of these challenges and I'm totally hoping to leave my cold in Vegas!  I've also heard that a great cure for a cold is Margaritas.....back on Wednesday.

Sucks Being Sick.'re off t..

Well, thanks to my lovely, sharing husband I have an incredibly nasty cold so haven't felt much like doing anything.  However, we had our second class with Shannon with Copics and I think I'm getting the hang of them.

We're off to Vegas on Thursday and I'm hoping to do some Copic shopping.  And I have quite a few images colored so I'll definitely make someting and have it posted before I leave.

Still Coloring

No new pic to post - but just a quick update.  I've been a coloring fool with the Copics and I think I'm starting to get the hang of it - but I know I still have a lot more to learn.  But it's a lot of fun!

I was pleasantly surprised when we got the mail today.  I received a beautiful card from Enjoli (Stamping Under the Sun) and she included a few Stamps that I can use my Copics on!  Thanks, again, Enjoli!  That was an amazing surprise for me!  I will have a lot of fun coloring these images!

I'm off to Vegas next week and have found a store where I will be able to get a great deal on Copics so I'll have a few more in the next couple of weeks to have even more fun with!
