Hiya friends!! Wowsers, I have to say that all your comments on yesterday's Blogaversary post took my breath away & almost made me teary-eyed (almost, but you know I hate to cry--lol)! Such lovely, kind and supportive friends I have---thank you so much, it lifted my spirits high! You ladies are all awesome and truly amazing--love ya!!

So far I have been asked for tutorials on more Copic coloring, highlighting/shading, my card-making process and stamping/coloring on fabric! So I will be working on all of those in the next few days for you!!! :o) Although I'm not sure any of you will be enlightened by my card-making process, hee hee---remember I have stamper's ADD so I'm all over the place!! LOL I promise to take video/pictures of my stamping space soon--waiting on my new desk so I can be super organized for ya!! (I do have a video tutorial of how to use flower soft on my sidebar for those of you who asked!)

**REMEMBER--you can enter for BLOG CANDY #1 until Saturday at midnite(EST) right HERE!! And BLOG CANDY #2 will be up tomorrow!!! ***

I've got two angelic cards for you today, although I don't think of myself as very angelic, hee hee! First up is a card I made for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch #79 --love this layout! The beautiful angel image is from H&M Stamps "Angelic Moments"--such a beautiful set! Reminds me of those Willow angels (of which I own a few). Although my loving son said it looked like she was doing Yoga--LOL! (ahhh, boys--so honest)

I painted white Liquid Pearls on her cloud and her wings have Ice Stickles on them for super chunky sparkleness! Had to add some pink glitter dots and the dp is from Basic Grey's "euphoria" stack! (I haven't bought any new dp in 5 whole weeks--patting myself on my back)!!

Second card uses another new Whiff of Joy image featuring "Melinda with Muffin Basket"! Isn't she a cutie? So many occasions you could use her for--I made her holding chocolate cupcakes but you could of course make them any muffin/cake you'd like :o) The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy too. 7 Kids College Fund will have all these new stamps up for pre-order this week for ya here in the states.

This layout is from last Saturday's "Our Creative Corner" post--just a great sketch. I find so much inspiration in sketch challenges--helps me organize my thoughts sometimes. That yummy dp is new from SU (no I didn't buy it, I got it free, hee hee)! Love chocolate browns with blue--my whole basement/rec room area are these colors--so soothing! Ribbon is PTI and pearls are my fave from Kaiser and a little diamond glaze on her cuppycakes :o)

Today on Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart my fellow DT sistah Danni has a fun tutorial on the "Crinkled Chalk" Technique for ya! So make sure to stop by & check it out--I know I will!

That's all for me today--gotta get working on all those tut's you want me to do, hee hee! Have a great Thursday!
