Hi all and Happy Thursday to ya! While you are reading this I SHOULD be on my way down to Charlotte, NC which is a 6 hour drive for me. But soooo looking forward to seeing my friends, doing some shopping and laughing of course. I’m gonna TRY really hard to be good & on my best behavior BUT you know “stuff happens” LOL! If anyone is going to the Southern Women’s Craft Show stop by Betty’s Stamping & Scrapbooking store booth at 4 pm today or 2 pm on Friday and say HI to me, ‘kay? I’ll be there demoing Copics for a bit and chattin’ with everyone. If not and you see someone either trip or wipeout on the floor with horrendous laughing following—well then you know you’ve probably found me Yeah I’ll be on facebook the next few days with our hijinks of course! Then next Friday I leave for Kansas City to teach for a few days—looking forward to it, been a few weeks since I’ve been on a plane and I miss it hee hee!
ITunes News---yep I’m a music and book addict! If hubby saw those bills each month from Itunes & Amazon he might faint dead away…shhhh don’t tell hee hee! It’s my “crack” LOL! Have you gotten Lady Antebellum’s new album yet? <swooooon> I love, love, love it---my fave two songs that you MUST listen to are “Own the Night” and “As You Turn Away”. And I love a good rockin’ country artist too and Brantley Gilbert is one of my faves---his new album ROCKS (Kick it in the Sticks has been a fave but “Falling Into You” is sweetly good too). Another song I cannot get enough of is Little Big Town’s “Kiss Goodbye”—you need to listen to it, reminds of me of old Boston mixed with country, so pretty! Yeah its not new but I just love it—see video below!

Today is a fun challenge for the Copic Creations Challenge Blog! Our fabulous sponsor is The Stamp Fairy—one of my fave digi stores (sending Gerda big hugz)! She so generously gave each of the DT an image to use and I chose this cutie-pie “Chubby Scarecrow 1”---too adorable! The Challenge is to color fur with Copics—one of my fave things to do and there are soooo many different ways to do this but I’m just showing one today!
So I used “Chubby Scarecrow 1” which is one of a set of cute fall bears for the fallicious season. My papers are from Memory Box and I based my bear colors on them—I wanted to make him a chubby black bear. I distressed all the edges with my Zutter Distress Tool and added some black pearls as well. The sentiment and circle stamp are by PTI and then I used my SB’s “Pinking Circles” to mat them. The cobweb border punch is by MS. The sketch I found at Skipping Stones Design and was designed by my pal Amy Sheffer, she has fabulous sketches to jumpstart your mojo!
Of course he got colored with Copics—C9,C7,C5,C3,C1 / E57,E37,E31,E50 / YR18,YR15,YR01 / YR24,Y21,YR20,E08. I left lots of lines in his fur to make him look well….fuzzy LOL. I also kept lines in his hat so it looked like an old straw hat. Stickles were added to the leaves, patch and straw for sparkle and Diamond Glaze on his nose & foot pad.
Now make sure to hop over to the Copic Creations Challenge Blog to see the DTs projects and how to play along and win!! Have a great day everyone!! See y’all tomorrow!
