Hello out there!  This 21 degree weather has got to go and what about the south getting snow and ice...eeeks! We accumulated about 2 inches last night and it's more icy then anything. Come on sunshine! 4 More days and Florida here we come!

 I just completed a 48 hour Copic coloring card making marathon. I have been up for 50 hours except for 2 hours last night and completed 36 cards for several orders I received.  It has not hit me yet but, I know when it does I am going to be wasted for 2 -3 days. Sounds like a drunken binge don't it. That what my body will feel like for sure! The hardest part was trying to design them all differently.  I have all these punches and gadgets and what knots to make all my cards look different from one another. I think I used two! I will never do this again and I still have to make our cards. I am so tempted to call hubby and tell him to stop after work and buy me a box of Christmas cards! Think he will mind with two room full of card making supplies? LMBO but not really funny!

If you love teddy bears will love Teddy Bear Stampers! Every other week we have a challenge for you, but you must have a teddy bear somewhere on your card! I adore and love teddy bears! I have given many away and still no matter what room you go to in my will be greeted with at least  two teddy bears. You have a choice this week by either using the colors red, white and green. Or you can do a sketch. I chose to do the red, white and green. And, stop by the blog to see who is now on the Teddy Stamper Design Team and leave some love for them!

Again, I have no clue who designed this adorable image. I bought it when I didn't think to make a note who's images were who's.  Now I have folders with the web address for my images. It made life a whole lot easier.

 TIP OF THE DAY:  Copic Coloring. I just love this image with two teddy bears looking in the store window wishing and dreaming what they might get for Christmas! Too dang cute! Notice the brick in the image. Doesn't it look like real brick? This is only one technique Suzanne Dean teaches in her Online Copic classes, Color Me Creative Classroom!  Here is a picture of a card I made last year before I knew how to color brick. Do you see the difference? The one above is so much more realistic looking! I'm telling you she is the Queen of Copic's. Suzanne's online Copic classes are in four parts from beginning to advance and right now she is having a holiday special with HUGE discounts. So give yourself an early Christmas gift!  Each topic has a video to watch Suzanne doing the coloring/techniques herself.  And, for each video you will also receive  a PDF,  you able to download to your computer.  If you would like to see her work before checking out the classes...this is Suzanne's personal blog, Scrapbitz.  You will be amaze!

I will be back later to list my supplies. Right now I need to get some much needed sleep! Hugz to all and thank you kindly for stopping by. You are really's nice knowing I am not talking to myself!!!
