I got some.....

...COPICS!  and I am mighty excited with them!  Totally loving the feel of  the markers as they literally "glide" and "skate" across my paper. So, I have not been blogging lately because I have been coloring.  And coloring.  And coloring. Really, seriously, I have that feeling that I had as a kid when I would get a new box of Crayola Crayons....the BIG 64 count and I would immeadiately want to squirrel away with them where no one could disturb me and then just color, color, blissfully color to my heart's content.  Okay, you probably got my point by now.  So, I needed to make a card for a friend who just had surgery and I went for my trusty Scarecrow....I love this little image and only seem to use it for "get well soon" type of cards...go figure.  Any ways, here it is...

                                                              
And my next card is one I made for my niece. It was for her bridal shower today.  She is getting married at the end of the month and is having fall colors in her wedding. I wanted to make her a card that was using some of the most vibrant colors Autumnal Wisconsin has to offer and yet was still elegant.  I also wanted it to look young/fresh too....I know, I am asking ALOT out of a card.  I pulled out my go to fav-o-rite sunflower stamp from LaBlanche and duplicated a card design that I made a while back and posted if you want to scroll down some.  And here is Em's shower card....


So, while I won't be giving up my beloved colored pencils I am LOVIN' these copics!  And, I plan to colorcolorcolor till my heart's content...just like I'm 8 again.  Thank you for stopping by.....and I hope you had a great weekend!

Be well,
Sheila

Wow Sheila, your Copic clouding is totally awesome! I love mine too but I cannot say that I can color like you do! I love how you caught the light so beautifully on your sunflower! And that scarecrow is a hoot!

There's no stopping you now, Sheila! You've been bitten by the Copic bug! Amazing coloring on both cards!

Sheila it looks like you took to Copics like a fish to water! Wonderful colors and shading! I also liked you "big box of crayons" story.

Wow - you are already a Copics master! Love the richness of these cards, Sheila! I love that scarecrow (thanks for sharing him with me!). You continue to amaze.
