Copic Creations No. 23- A wee bit o' GREEN!

Hi there and happy Monday! The new challenge at Copic Creations is using "Copic greens". (in honor of St. Patty's day ofcourse!)

Also- we have a new dt member over there - Heather (Rica) of Rica's Haven! The sponsor and "candy giver " this time is OUR CRAFT LOUNGE!

They sent the whole dt team these AWESOME stamps to play with and some Appletini green sparkly fluff ! The set I got is called "Snail Mail" and it has 13 rubber cling stamps. Make sure you check out what all the dt members did on the Copic Creations blog cuz there are some really cute images! I used one of my fav (they are all my favs) Basic Grey dp pads- Origins and a CB folder and these greens: YG 03, 95, 97 and G 21, 82

The grass on the mailbox is where I sprinkled my Appletini fluff and then I punched a few leaves with my MS punch. The snail is popped up and shaded with C1 and C3. tfl!

Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 42

Well...HAD to play along AGAIN with the MMSC team! When I saw the new sketch I decided that I wanted to do something different . I have had this Inkadinkado "Horses" set for a while and pulled it out. A friend of mine loves horses and I thought one day I would make her some cards with this. I was really suprized how fast this card came together for me! The dp is old Cosmo Cricket- "Wanted " and also I used some from a K & Co. Ancestry pad. The sentiment is from a BG Granola elements sticker sheet and so is the little flourish on the side. :) tfl and have a great week!

Welllllll...HAD to stop and make a card cuz I LOVE LOVE LOVE this image and sentiment sooooo much!! lolol Here it is for the Mojo challenge this week. So darn simple, yet I thought I better take a pic cuz I WILL GET carried away and stress over what else to put on this card! Too bad I dont have time! This is called appropriately "Break Time" and I laughed out loud when I saw this sentiment that came with it! I colored this relaxing gal with Copics and used ALL BG Marrakech paper (another fav) TFL and MAYBE I should go get that book done now! :)
