Hi all and Happy Thursday to ya! One more day till the weekend--YAY! We've got a busy weekend this time--my niece turns 3 and has her party on Saturday, then Saturday night is Date Night for me & the hubster (and yes dinner & movie that includes seeing "Date Night" w/ Tina Fey/Steve Carell), LOL! Then Sunday we have to finish the flower beds out fron, put together my new solar fountain bird bath and then I have a party to go to at a friend's house--whoosh! And of course lots of projects to finish up in the meantime too! Weather is supposed to be beautiful today so we're going to have dinner on our golf club's patio this evening and enjoy a bit of time together and spring!
-The Fan Club Gallery is now up for everyone if you're a Fan Club member at Splitcoast Stampers (if not & want to be, see here). That means the Dirty Dozen DT (including me) has all their projects up for you and the theme this time is VINTAGE (my fave)! A lil' sneak peek for you below of one of my projects--I can't share any them on my blog for at least 6 mos. so this is it, hee hee!
-Class 4 is almost done for my Online Copic Classroom and it's up now for pre-registration (discounted pricing) if you're interested HERE (click Classroom Tab and page down) for a class description, pricing & supply list! For the first 3 weeks I'm taking $3 from each Class 4 registration plus $100 of my own money and donating it to a great cause--this time it will go to UNICEF which I think is a brilliant & wonderful charity that serves this great big world we live in! They educate, rescue, feed, give medical aid and help to those in need around the WORLD and you know your money is being used wisely. I think it's so important to give back and if you've followed me regularly you know I pick different charities every now & then to support (past ones have been women's shelters, children's charities and animal rescue groups). Once monies are collected I'll post the receipt/invoice to Unicef here on the blog for all to see--hoping for a good tally!! There is a lot of need here in our country and around the world! And if you don't buy a class but would like to donate some $$ email me and we will add you to the group funds!!
I colored this lil' gal's hair with C9,C7,C5 & C3 then added a few white highlites. I have a video tutorial on coloring black hair (at top of blog, click on the tutorials/templates tab)--it can be tricky making it look black & not gray so you have to practice at it. You don't want to use anything below a "3" copic when coloring black hair, and do most of your coloring with your darker colors. I added some diamond glaze to her shoes and headband for some shine--gave her skirt some white polka dots as well to match the paper! I just love her and think she's super sassy & cute!
Now make sure & hop over to the Copic Creations Challenge Blog and see the rest of the DT's fabulous projects with The Greeting Farm stamps and find out how you can join in too!
See ya tomorrow--have a goodie!
