Just a place to share my projects and ideas as well as a place to connect with others who share the love of scrapbooking, cardmaking, and papercrafting.

Have a Magical Day! (My first attempt at Copics)
My, it's been a while! I have been preparing for baby rather than playing in my scrap room (but you sure couldn't tell that by the mess that's in there right now!). My sister-in-law's birthday was this past weekend though and she needed a birthday card so that gave me an excuse to get in there and create. I used Gina K's Pure Luxury cardstock (in the kraft color) as my base for this card and the blue and green patterned papers are both from Echo Park. The pink is just a scrap piece of pink paper I had that I used Stampin Up! Seeing Spots stamp set on to create another pattern. The stamp is from My Favorite Things (which happen to be one of my new favorite things- I love these "Pure Innocence" stamps!) And this is my first try with Copics. I was introduced to both Copics and My Favorite Things at CHA last month (along with several other new things that are horrible for the checkbook!) I am working on baby shower "Thank You" cards right now using another new favorite (Taylored Expressions stamps) so once those are finished I'll share that as well! I'll try to be back a little sooner next time. I'm supposed to be "taking it easy" as my blood pressure has been a little higher than my doctor would like. Just 5 weeks left but little missy is measuring big so we have an ultrasound on Thursday to determine how big she actually is. I'm guessing it won't be a whole 5 weeks till I have a new little someone to share pictures of!
