Friends are amazing...

Today I bring you a special card made from the heart.  It's been a rough week for me - been told I have a stress ulcer and realized it's time I change my life. My husband has been a truly amazing person, always supporting me and standing by my side through everything.  Given all that, I created a special card for a friend...

I am really loving my Copic markers and find they are so relaxing and a great way to relieve my daily stress =)

Little Miss Muffets Plush Kitty digi-stamp
Make it Crafty Fairy Chair background

Copic Rookie

So I dove right in and switched up from Prismacolor pencils to using Copics. First things first... I'm a total rookie!  I started out with just the skin tone pack to get accustomed to coloring with them.  After a few YouTube videos and several hours later... I dove into some actual colors.  I still have a LONG way to go before I feel comfortable using them, but with practice and a few classes on the horizon, I know I'm going to love using these =)

So here's my first colored image... not too shabby right?

 I used the following for this card:
Digistamp from Little Miss Muffett Stamps
Recollections cardtock
Spiderweb corner from Silhouette 
Halloween Washi Tape
Copics (YG25, BV00, BV08, BV17, YG06, YG13)
Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Purple & Firefly Stickles
