C is for Copics!

Hello Happy Crafters! Well, I have been in AZ for 2 weeks and my parents are doing good.  Thank you for all the prayers and good wishes. I have lots of stories and if you belong to The Outlawz design team you have read the one I am posting today, but I wanted to put it here too! For new followers my mother will be 86 and my father is 89 and I have been traveling back and forth from Maryland to Arizona to help them out a bit.


The other day my mom was really hurting from a vehicle accident she was in and she finally took some pain meds that knocked her off of her feet and she slept all day.  I cut up a fresh watermelon and put it in the fridge to surprise her.  When she got up, I was outside helping my dad and so she decided to heat up some left over's for dinner. I walked in the house...sniff, sniff  and open the micro wave and almost died for their was the bowl of watermelon. OH my gosh talk about stink!!!! It was horrible!  I asked her how long did she nuked them and she said 10 minutes on high!!She thought it was the left over corn beef and cabbage. Yep they look alike to me too!! LMBO! Let me tell ya if you ever want to get rid of anyone in your house - zap some watermelon


This card was made for a very special person, Rusty. He is the owner of Oozak where you can buy all of your copics, over 240 different paper pads, Memory box dies, stamps galore and his prices are ideal! Rusty is very dear to my heart, because he has supported The Outlawz, a challenge website I created 17 months ago, from the very beginning  with nothing but generosity.  He is such a wonderful person and friend and I hope you will visit his awesome online store! If you are ever near Kalamazoo, Michigan you will need to visit his new walk-in store with a fantastic showroom.  And, this last week his brand new challenge blog went live - check it out!

My image is from Saturated Canary, isn't she just adorable!?! and look at that apron holding my copics! This is an ideal image to send any of your crafting friends! My die is from Cherry Lynn Designs
I colored this in a hurry the day I was leaving for Arizona. Not real happy with it but ... My card was used for The Greetings Challenge over at The Outlawz which was a fun one to do. You need to use something on your card that begins with the first initial of your name. I used Copics for Colleen!

Hope you are having an awesome week!

Fantastic card for Rusty, Colleen! I love the DP and Krista's fun image! Fantastic coloring, as always! Glad things are still going well in AZ!

Love Love Love...all that gorgeous purple and the wonderful selection of dies you used!!

The Watermelon story sounds just horrible, YUK!! And too think that she mixed it up with Corned Beef. Plus, what in the world does anyone cook for 10 minutes in a Microwave...Yikes!!

Glad to hear she is doing better, but I know you miss being home..and sure wish they were closer for you! Maybe you can some how have them consider moving back to the East Coast?

Been thinking about you and can hardly wait for our Trip! Have a safe trip back home and talk soon!!

Hugs,
Lis
