One year ago today, I made the first post on my blog! I can't believe how much fun I have had in the past year. I have "met" so many people, some of whom, I have even gotten to meet in person. One of the reasons I decided to start a blog was to encourage myself to craft on a more regular basis. I definitely have! I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone that drops by to visit and leaves me such encouraging comments. I am working on putting together some blog candy, so check back in the next few days! Thanks again!

Gardening Riley & Blogaversary!!
Okay, I know I have been showing you lots of Riley cards lately! Since taking the Copic class, I have been practicing coloring a lot and these images are just lots of fun to color and play with. It also helps that coloring Riley was one of the projects that we did in class, so I can kind of gauge my progress. And I am seeing some progress, for one thing it doesn't take me as long to actually finish an image. This card was for a challenge in the Hanna Stamps forum on SCS. It was a color challenge with a twist. The colors given were apricot and ballet blue and the twist was to add an additional color of your choice. I chose this rusty red color. I don't have any SU colors, so I picked the closest colors I had on hand based on the sample card. Stamp is from Hanna Stamps, image was stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copic markers, paper is DCWV and ovals were cut out with Nestabilities.
