I thought I would share with you my new "favorite" layout. I got this idea from Susan "Rainy" in her post from last week and flipped out over how neat the look was. You can see that I have two different sentiments that I can adhere inside the card, depending on which one I need. I also thought it would be a perfect entry for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, since that's what I worked on. I even made a version for a Christmas card, although I haven't completed the image yet so I'll have to post that later. The papers I used are SU's Autumn Vine from a few years back. The sentiments are from SU's "Thoughts and Prayers."
I'll have another post for our Copic Creations Challenge on Saturday, so stay tuned. Thanks for dropping by and be sure and take a look at the beautiful cards Susan did, (link above.)

Copic Creations Challenge Time

This sweet little drumming bear is from Stamp Fairy, who is one of our two sponsors for this mid-September challenge. The theme is "coloring fur" and I think you'll find all these cute furry critters illustrated by our DT to be looking quite cuddly. We have another sponsor as well, which is My Creative Classroom, and you can find out all that they have to offer by clicking on the link, or reading about it on the Copic Creations blog. I put a Christmas sentiment with him because he made me think of the little drummer boy whose wish was to play his drum for the newborn King. I will add it to my "stack" of Christmas cards for this year. I hope you get inspired to check out the tutorials for coloring fur and then join us for this challenge. Happy Fall to all and thanks for stopping by.

"Peeked Out Peeker"

Yep, that's the name of this adorable image from Elizabeth Bell's new Peeker's Collection #2 at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, who happens to be our awesome sponsor for this Copic Creations challenge. Happy September 1 to all of you. Our challenge theme is "pink" and we want to see what you do with those wonderful pink Copics that you have. My sweet little peeker is colored mostly with the R81,83,85,89 group, with a wee bit of R00 and R20 for her cheeks. My DP's are from Memory Box "Jubilee," sponged with Crushed Olive and Victorian Velvet distress inks. Our talented DT did some beautiful cards for this challenge, so be sure to click the link to our Copic Creations blog and be inspired. We also have an awesome winner from our last challenge whose card you'll definitely want to see. Thanks so much for stopping by. To those I try to regularly follow, please forgive my absence. I know I'm the one missing out on seeing all those beautiful cards you're doing and reading of all that's going on with you. I am still sorting out time conflicts, but I will try to visit very soon. I'm so glad there's a promise of at least slightly cooler weather ahead. Have a wonderful Labor Day and first week of September.
