It's Birthday Party Time again!

Hello! Sorry for being MIA I just feel swamp! I leave Wednesday for Las Vegas to visit my daughter and will leave there Thursday to go to Pahrump to finish packing my parents and move them to Yuma, Arizona! It seemed like I had all this time to get things done and whammm it's almost time to go! So please pardon the next few hurried posts!

It's Tuesday and you know what that means!! Birthday Party Time! So get out those birthday sentiments and start making those beautiful birthday cards for Party Time Tuesday! If you follow my blog regularly you will know this is one of my favorite blogs! Every card must have a birthday greeting on it along with the current challenge! You never have enough birthday cards and guess what we are giving  a small prize for the random winners! What more could you ask for!  This week is to use fall colors!

Don't forget to enter the Copic Color Challenge at Simply Scrapping Crafts. If you are not familiar with SSC  you are missing great challenges, tutorials and of course my Copic Challenges! If you enter the Copic challenges for the current month you have a chance to win either two Copic Markers or Two Copic Variance Refills, colors of your choice! How awesome is that! Great way to enter challenges plus, win Copics!! SSC is having a Halloween blog hop this Friday with lots of prizes to be won along the way!

This beautiful birthday card is with a Victoria Case rubber stamp image: Autumn. She is part of the Hearts and Hugs Collection made exclusively for SCACD. Isn't she a sweetie and perfect for the new fall cards we are all going to be making. Hard to believe Christmas is around the bend again! EEEEKss!

TIP OF THE DAY:  Fixing coloring mistakes . When you color outside of the lines with your markers the image is not ruin. You can take your colorless blender and push that color right back over the line to where it belongs! Let me tell ya Cryogen paper is the easiest paper to get rid of your mistakes. I use the blunt nib and literally push down on the color and move it back across the line. If it doesn't completely remove after  2 or 3 times of pushing. Let it dry and do it again. You also want a piece of paper under your coloring to collect the extra coloring you will be creating with the blender pen.  You will be amaze how easy those little slips are to fix. My  last resort is my white highlight pen. I will cover my ink mistakes with the white ink but be sure you do not need to color over that area again because, the white highlighter is one thing that the Copic does not cover. 

Have fun and be safe! Hugzz, Colleen
