Woo-hoo!!!!

First, my exciting news and then on to the deets of my card. Yours truly will be taking a Copic certification class in November! I am so very excited about this too, I can't wait. I will be driving quite a distance to take the class and it happens to be the weekend before Thanksgiving, so I am thinking of taking that entire week off work and spending time visiting family along the way. Today's card uses the Flutter Anya from The Greeting Farm and the image was colored with Copic markers. I added a little bit of glitter on the hearts that are on her wings. Papers are DCWV, the ribbon is American Crafts and the butterflies came from my stash. I am still deciding on the butterflies. Every have one of those parts of a card that you just aren't sure of? One time I look at them and really like them and the next, they kind of make me shake my head. Let me know what you think of them!

Jenna (10) and Samantha (7) were over here today and we had a great time playing in the craft room. We had a great time stamping and coloring. Normally they like making cards, but this afternoon was all about stamping and coloring. Samantha crafts with me a lot more than her sister and she also goes to our craft night at church with me so she has heard me explain the basics of coloring and blending with Copics many times. It was so cute to listen to her explain everything to Jenna and calling out the numbers of the colors to color Riley stamps with. Too cute to hear her say " you need to add some E35 there for some shadow"! They are as excited as I am about the new crafting space that we are working on. Thanks for visiting!
