Yay it's Friday Friends! Do you have a fabulous weekend planned? We don't have anything exciting planned but that is A-OK with me, LOL! I have quite a busy end of the month planned so I'm gonna enjoy the calm and quiet KWIM! Alexa is headed to a hockey game tonight with friends so it will be a late night for her which means a late night for mom and dad, hee hee! Speaking of hockey--did any of you watch that AWESOME hockey game on New Year's Day? We rocked the red baby and Capitals won (sorry to any PA fans, lol)--next to football I LOVE watching hockey and going to games. Its always so exciting and fun :) Hubby is supposed to be taking me to a Caps game soon so I'm looking forward to that. He always gets tickets but I don't always has a chance to go with work, kids schedules and life in general, LOL! But I try to make it to at least a game or two! I just wish the Redskins had had a better season, sigh---I'll hope again for next season! If we could get a NEW OWNER maybe things would improve--ugh on the owner I tell ya! Keep the team together, stop buying players that cost so much $$ and don't perform and get a good coach---ta da! LOL! Can you tell I'm frustrated with them! Spring better come SOON :) I'll just root for the Baltimore Ravens for now--I'd love to see a hometown team make it in the Super Bowl this year!

Today I get to share a fun project I did for my CMC Challenge Group with you all! The new challenge is up HERE and the group is OPEN to everyone no matter what skill level you are at---you do not have to take a class to join our challenge group (you must join the site to join the group though--Ning's rule not mine, lol)! Its a fun group and we have challenges every 2 weeks focused on copic techniques and colors with great prizes! This challenge we have a fabulous sponsor the Stamp Fairy--they have super cute digi images that you do not want to miss out on! So you need to go visit them and fill your cart with these cute digi images! I just adore them and Gerda the owner is as sweet as can be too! I created a fun Valentines Day or Birthday project that includes a card and a pixie stix treat--fun for any age!
This little cutie is called "Lenny Love" and there are 5 in this series and they are all CUTE!! The CMC Challenge is to color "fur" so that's what I did! I wanted a soft black/gray bear and I colored him with copics (C7,C5,C3,C1,C00) keeping my stroke lines short and not blending to give him a textured look! All of my papers are from Paper Trey Ink--I love hot pink and black together--lots of hot drama, LOL!
Zva pearl swirls and then PTI ribbon with a bow/pearl accent. The pretty mat behind the main image is from SB's "Lacey Circles"--one of my faves! I left the sentiment off so it could be used for many different occasions.
Come on repeat after me---AWWWWWWWWW, don't you wanna squish him? LOL! I put diamond glaze on his paws and nose and also the heart. Once the heart was dry I added stardust stickles to the top for sparkle. You could put a lil' bow in his hair and make him a "HER" too :) Copic colors used: C7,C5,C3,C1,C00 and RV14,RV10. **And Stamp Fairy has him dressed up like a bee too HERE--its next on my list--sooo cute!! **
To make the matching pixie stix treat I made the digi image much smaller and then printed him out. That is one of the best things about digi images--you can make them as big or small as you'd like and flip them around too! Very cool! I just used the same "Lacey Circles" dies to mat my image and colored him the same way. A pretty bow tops it off--the pixie stix are adhered to the back side of the circle with Scor-Tape. These are quick and easy to make so multiples of them would be easy-peasy :)
Hope you enjoyed this post and I have one more post tomorrow for you too! Enjoy your weekend!
