LQQKIE I am so excited!

Happy Sunday Everyone!! How was your weekend? Mine was a fabulous weekend ending a fabulous week. One of the greatest things happened this week and let me show you my surprise when I hopped on over to Simply Scrapping Crafts!
Meet Colleen
"Certified Copics Designer"
Copics Challenge Group
Starting in October the "Copics Corner" will be a challenge group only.  Colleen will be handling this group offering you a weekly Wednesday challenge for all Copic Lovers.

Seeing my name on this banner is like an actress seeing her name in lights for the very first time! Plus, it is with a card I made using  a digi fromone of my favorite artist, Elisabeth Bell! How cool is that? The banner was a total surprise and Judy, the owner of Simply Scrapping Crafts did an awesome job creating it and made me smile big time!

Let me tell you about the Copic Challenges which is on every Wednesday over at Simply Scrapping Crafts If you complete each challenge in any month, your name will be entered into a random drawing at the end of the month and the lucky winner will win either 2 Copic Markers or 2 Variance (Copic) refills! Now that is cool it's a great way to build up your supply of Copics! Plus, this month the person who brings the most friends to join the Copic Group by 11:59 Halloween night,  I will give you two Copic markers or two Variance refills! That is 4 new markers or refills  you could possible win at the end of the month. I am not going to tell you to put this on your blog, but if you want to win these challenges it would be a fast way for you to have people join! (hint, hint) So remember starting Wednesday, October 6, will be the first challenge for the month of October! You can join the  Copic group at any time (another hint, hint!!)

Speaking of my favorite artist!  I made another card using Elisabeth Bell's digital image, Little Rapunzel and you can find her and all the other fabulous Elisabeth Bell's digi's here! I just love the sweet innocent face and the fab outfit!!

Tip of the Day:  Did you know you can color your rubber or acrylic stamps with copics and then stamp it?  This has to be done very quickly! Color your stamp with copics.  You can do it two different ways and do it very quickly. 1. Huff on your stamp like you do when you are going to clean your eye glasses...Stamp very quickly. 2. Spay mist into the air and swing your stamp into it. Other words you are not spraying water directly onto the stamp. You are using a mister and before the mist falls you place your stamp in the air to catch part of the particles. This is mostly for doing soft colors like flowers in on a smaller stamp.

Have a wonderful week, keep smiling and stay safe!

How pretty this is. You combined a LOT of challenges on this.

After looking at your photo, I thought "she looks familiar". So I checked out your profile I see you live in Eldersburg. I go to PhotoScraps whenever I go through that area (I live in Washington County MD) on my way to Baltimore. I think we have met there and chatted. What a small world.
