End of the Month Craziness!

Ahhh, Happpy, happy Friday everyone!! It's the weekend again, yippee!! Can you believe it will be March 1st on Sunday? Spring is coming for sure now, I just knows it :o) Now I won't have to hunt down that groundhog & make him disappear, hee hee! I've got a couple of cards to show you today--I am in my end of month "MADNESS" right now trying to finish projects & get sneak peeks ready & all that! ARGHHHHH---stressful for sure!

Anywho, make sure and check back this weekend because I'll have some H&M Stamp's sneakie peekies, Magnolia March sketch & Whiff of Joy's Project of the Month for ya!!

Can I just say I love, love this dp by Basic Grey "Marrakech"--the colors are so cheerful & the prints are just bee-u-tiful! I was looking at some new Karen Lockhart stamps I had recieved from my friend Susana's store & knew that the pattern on this stamp "Apples in Chintz" would go wonderfully with this fun dp! So I colored up my image with my Copics to match (I am doing a video tutorial next week on how I colored this image in case you're interested)!

I added a fun hatpin from Making Memories (got a package of them at Michaels) and added some fun beads to match! This is my new obssession--so you might be seeing alot more hatpins on my projects, hee hee---love 'em!! If anyone knows where I can find "endcaps" for the hatpins so they don't injure someone, lol---please let me know cuz' I can't find them anywhere!

Just a close-up view of the image---I added some diamond glaze to my apples to make them all nice & shiny!

Second card for today uses another lovely image from Whiff of Joy's Spring Collection. This stamp is "Oakley w/ Slipover" and I think he's such a cute lil' boy image! I wanted to use him to make a fun boy's birthday card which is always a bit of a struggle for me. I colored him up to match this fun dp from Piggy Tales and the sentiment is from PTI's "Limitless Labels". I drew a little grassy mound for him to sit upon (this tutorial with Copics will be up soon as part of a "Tips & Tricks" segment I'll be doing too).

If you haven't had a chance, check out my Copic tutorials that are listed on my sidebar under "Copic Bundle Tutorials"! You can purchase each bundle of Sketch Copics at Susana's Custom Art & Card Design---a great way to start off your Copic Collection!

Also stop by Susana's store blog HERE, to see today's tutorial on Criss Cross cards by Anki---you'll love this easy to follow tutorial!!

Alrighty--time for me to get back to work! Have a great Friday!
