I hope everyone in the US (or who celebrates the holiday) had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving. I definitely will have to hit the gym next week to try and sweat off the few extra pounds that I put on...or hey maybe the tighter waist band is just water weight!
I've been busy putting together quite a few new classes for the upcoming schedule at my LSS and for those who are local, I think you'll like the new classes for Copics so you can continue to build on your previous experiences in class.
However, I was finally able to sit down and just play around for the fun of it. No classwork, no DT assignments...just coloring because I wanted to. That is the best kind of crafting:)
This too cute of a stamp happened to fall into my cart while browsing at my LSS. This cutie is from Impression Obsession called Snowman with Bird. The bright and fun paper is from my stash and the cover disappeared. I promised myself not to buy any new Christmas papers (okay, paper for class doesn't count) this year until I used up what I already had. Needless to say, over the year, I think the paper pads bred with each other and created even more paper so I won't be buying any paper:(. The fabulous die cut border is from Memory Box is called Pine Needle Border and the sentiment is also from Memory Box.
Speaking of Memory Box, which has long been one of my absolutely favorite companies with awesome products, I was recently asked to join the Memory Box Design Team. Now how fantastically cool is that?!! I was just a bit on the giddy side (still am actually) and I look forward to playing with all of their stuff! For those who are local or in Colorado, look for another awesome announcement related to this in the near future:)!!!
You can find all of the talented Design Team Member's work on the MB Blog called Outside the Box.
Of course this wonderful snowman was colored up with my always handy Copics. I used a little bit of my Signo pen for the silver. I also recently purchased a few of the Wink of Stella glitter brush tip markers from Zig and OMG am I in love with these things. I didn't use them on this card, but I have a few images coming up where I've used them. These things are fantastic and the amount of glitter that actually can been seen is amazing. These put the Copic atyou spica pens to shame with the amount of coverage and glitter they put out. They are built just like water brushes and the tips are more along the lines of the fine tip on the water brush. Anyhoo, if you get a chance to play with them, take it!!
Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend.
