Swiss Flowers!!

Happy, Happy TGIFriday!  It's gonna be a beautiful weekend here in VA--mid 70's and I'm almost caught up on my sleep, lol!  Tonight my good pal Marti is coming over so we can finalize the mini-magazine and I will finish setting up the website to go along with it this weekend too.  Lots to do before my NYC trip and I don't want to be worried about work when we're away--that's no fun!

Classes over at the Color Me Creative site are going really well, all the kinks are worked out and everyone seems to be enjoying them--for that I am very thankful.  When you work that hard, for such a long time on something it is wonderful to hear positive feedback--so I thank you all for that!  I'm running the introductory prices thru Sunday, so if you're on the fence about signing up they're extended for a few more days--on Monday the prices will go up by $5 each!!  And if you're around today between 3-4 pm EST, stop by the Main Site HERE to chat with me!


-Pink Cat Studio had a NEW Digi RELEASE yesterday, but the website was down--so make sure and stop by the store HERE to check those cuties out!

-Haven't signed up for the NEW Mini-Mag "Through the Craftroom Door" yet?  You can read all about it HERE!

Swiss Flowers

I LOVE CC Designs Swiss Pixies--they're just so cute and so much fun to color!  This one is called "Heidi Among the Flowers" and you can buy her HERE!  I used some of these in my Copic classes, because they offer great coloring spaces!  The papers are Cosmo Cricket's "Dutch Girl" --kinda appropriate, hee hee! I hoard this paper, cuz' I love the color combo!

All of my edges were distressed with my Tonic Distress Tool for a little vintage vibe :o)  I layered Prima Hydrangeas with cream flowers and topped them with Prima red roses (find them all HERE)!  The swirls are from a punch and then I added some red pearls to them.

She's of course colored with copics (BG72,BG11,BG10 & R29,R24,R22,R20) with some stickles on the flowers and her belt. I drew in some extra blades of grass with my copics--and those soft blended edges are done with my Inkssentials Blending tool (luv it, use it everyday)!

Now don't forget to stop back by tonight at 11 pm for the Gina K Blog Hop--I'm gonna show off some of the new sets for ya!  Have a fabulous weekend!
