Hi- and welcome to yet another Copic Creations blog challenge! This month we have that lovely Susana from "Susana's Custom Art and Card Designs" as a sponsor again! A little birdie told me she was giving away a SET OF COPICS as a prize!!! YEP! "that's what I'm talkin about baby!!"...lolololo She sent the dt some of her favorite "Victoria Case" images..or .."pixies" to color up. This one is called "Aurora with bird" and her skirt is "feathered" with these copics: BG000, 01,02,05 and YR000, 02,04,07. My dp is from an old K & Co. 12 x 12 pad and I used a couple MS punches. If you LOVE COPICS..I would get in on this action! Need a little "schooling" on how to "feather blend"..then just look HERE for some help! Check out what the other dt members did! tfl!

Do you enjoy "Fat Tuesday"?? :)

Thinking of having some fun this year on Fat Tuesday? Maybe just splurging a "little" on some goodies?? ha ha! Take a look at this cute image from S2G for Mardi Gras! I do a little "over eating and drinking" myself that day :) and I guess and I would LOVE to go to Mardi Gras too! For is a little something I made to bring a bottle of wine with me to a get together! I bought the round wine bottle box from my Lcs for about $3.00 and altered it. I painted it then just made the borders and colored this cute image and attached with a hot glue gun. I made the card that could also be an invitation to a party , and colored it with my Copics. Now all this being said...Take a LOOK over at these 2 blogs...GEORGIA and CAT....they are my dt sisters at S2G and I would say that they made the rest of the "PARTY ESSENTIALS"!! HA HA HA!! You will know what I mean when you take a look! !

"Here's to My Friends"

While you are out there "blog hopping" is another cute image from "Shirley's 2 Girls" called "My Friends". Okay...I am guilty of LOVING these images from the "Indulgence" line and I think it is cuz anyone can really relate to them! I paper pieced the one blonde lady and colored the rest with my Copics. I also used my MS city skyline punch (not sure if that is the right name) and the dp is from Karen Foster designs. This set comes with some adorable sentiments and I am grinning while coloring each one!

Shirley's 2 Girls- TWIST= "Anything But A Card" challenge!

Shirley's 2 Girls is releasing some AWESOME Valentine images! These little inchies are called "Valentine Love Inchies". This challenge is to make "anything but a card". When I was told that ..I thought "oh no"..I really dont think I can come up with something". Then I started "cruising" SCS and remembered seeing these cute little "post it" note pads. Now I am sure that MOST of you have done something similar but I never had...EASY !! I just loved how simple and cute these came out using the new "inchies" set from S2G! I bought 3 "post it" note pads ($2.00) in Walmart and cut 3 papers- 3 1/8 x 9 1/4. Then I scored at about 3 & 3/8, 3 & 3/4, and 7 & 3/4. Just make your folds and you are ready to make any kind of top! Dp sewed is BG Sugar rush and CB heart, MS border punches and I popped up the inchies that I had colored a little with red Copics. Ofcourse the post it pads are secured inside with strong tape. They are so cute cuz they close like little match books! Perfect little gifts to give my dds' for their desks at work!! Be sure to check out the other dt blogs (S2G list on my blog side)AND stay tuned to see the new suprizes S2G has in store for you this month!! I can tell you they are very very S W E E T !! Mr Linky is waiting for you at the blog! :)

Crazy 4 Challenges..use polka dots

Here is a quick card I couldnt wait to color up and finally got the chance. I snagged this cute little FREEBIE house from Shirley's 2 Girls and it had two sentiments. "Home Sweet Home" and "There is no place like home". I was really thinking of my son who was home for the holidays with his future wife to show us the ring and celebrate a bit. Okay..maybe more then a bit! he he he! I miss both of them already! This was an easy peasy card to put in the box along with the shirt he left behind and maybe some cookies!DP is BG and image is colored with Copics. I used my SB book die cut and CB the navy then just cut out a few flowers to pop up with the house. tfl!
