Copic Challenge

Good morning everyone!  It's Wednesday at12:41AM and I know to many of you this is morning, but it is still my Tuesday night! Between being a night owl and severe insomnia I am usually up until 3 AM or better.  Lots to tell ya! Did you notice a new blinkie in my side bar? This past month I have been a guest designer at Teddy-Stampers and was asked to join the design team! Yahoo, of course I said "yes!"  Teddy-Stampers is one of the very first blog challenges I entered and I  love my teddy bears! It will be announce on Oct. 8 with their bi-weekly challenge!

Also! Do you like Elisabeth Bell and Victoria Case images? I absolutely love them and being on the Elisabeth Bell's Guest Design team is even sweeter!  Right now, SCACD is holding an exciting Store Blog Candy! Click HERE to check out the details and to enter. There will be a super fabulous Elisabeth Bell and Victoria Case Mini Release exclusively for SCACD on the 30th! Come on and hop over to SCACD’s blog for all the details. Trust me you will want to enter this contest and you only need to answer a very simple question!!

Last but surely not least is my card! My image is "Cowgirl"  from Nana Vic's Digitals and if you haven't been there yet you need to go! You should see her sentiments they are so dang cute and only $2.00 per sheet! How awesome is that? She has one for potty training and some of the sayings are "caution wet floor" or "remember when life was simple?" and it has a picture of a diaper and diaper pin! Too cute! Grab them now for she said there will be an increase in price. Take a peak!

Any how on my card tonight I used the sentiment "Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway!"  This card is for a very special friend of mine and all women who have been diagnose with breast cancer or any type of illness and even though scared out of our wits.... we go on and fight and with the grace of God and win! My light bulb went off right after I was done making it ..I should have done it in all pink!  Next time! I made this card for the copic challenge I made up over at Simple Crafting Scraps! Come on over and join the Copic group because, next week we have a super duper announcement to make!  If you love Copics and Copic Challenges you do not want to miss it and hint hint it has to do with prizes!! So come join me for this week's Copic Challenge! Scroll to September 29 Challenge!


I kept my card very clean and simple!

  • Cryogen White for coloring with Copics
  • Diamond Glaze on glasses, boots and barrel
  • Copics:
    • Red: R27, R24, R22
    • Blue: B26, B24, B23, B21
    • Skin: E11, E00, E000
    • Boots (brown) E74, E71, E70
    • Barrel: E37, E33, E31, E29, E25
    • Bowel: Y8, Y4, Y00  my yellows always turn green and have no clue why
    • Barrel Straps: C03, C01, C00
TIP OF THE DAY!  When you cut your card stock do you ever end up with fray's or stringy cut?  If you pull on them it rips the paper more and cutting it off usually ends up with an uneven cut. Easy Peasy! Use an Emory board  and file up and down on the side. Not from side to side for this will fray it more . just up and down and watch it disappear!!

If you found one bit of info helpful then I am a happy camper!!  Till tomorrow! Hugz and keep safe.

Thank you so much Colleen for taking the time to email me through a heads up that you'd used one of my designs. Totally adore what you've done with the 'Cowgirl' digi and the sentiment is just perfect for your friend. Thanks also for the promotional wrap about my digis and putting in a link. *Smiles*
I'm so pleased that I've had this opportuntiy to visit your site and go through some of your older creations. Your an inspiring artist and your shared tips are fabulous. I'm only very new to copics so the break down of what colours you've used in your wonderful cards is a great help.
I'm very happy to be following your site now so I'll be able to enjoy more of your stunning work.
