Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday. I really should be hard at work on the kitchen floor, but had to play a bit first.
I had so much fun last night! My friend Shirley invited me over for chicken sandwiches and to peruse the new Angel Company catalog, and to PLAY in her glorious craft room...
After we ate, and ooh'd, aah'd, and ugh'ed over the new catty, it was time to make our way down into the girl cave (my fantasy craft room!). We experimented with some awesome little goodies that will be seen at her open house next month, and then moved on to the next project. Which leads me to....
LOOKIE WHAT I DID!!!!!!!
The card above looks perfectly normal to all of you.
To me, it's a MASTERPIECE!
Because...I put down my colored pencils and let Shirley (well, actually ASKED Shirley) to teach me a little bit about Copics!
Yes, you heard right...no pencils, no mineral spirits, no blending stumps...but COPICS!
I knew, just knew that I would hate them.
Now, not only am I in a heap of trouble over the new catty, but now I find myself also needing 334 new markers.
This is an endeavor that will probably happen one marker at a time, but that's okay! I have more time than money - lol...I know what's on MY Christmas list!
The sentiment on the inside says: "I can't believe I forgot your birthday".
By the way, these adorable little babies were my trial run....attempt #1.
Note that I nearly 'blended' the little girls tummy to death!
Anyway, a ginormous thank you to Shirley for getting me outa my pencil box and showing me that I really CAN color with markers! I had so much fun last night!
Oh, one last thing....after we colored, we called our dear friend Chelsea, and gave her a 'hard time'.... she was a great sport about it, and I can only hope that she still loves us!
Chelsea, you 'da best, and I don't know how you manage to create the beautiful things you do when you work such long hours!
Have a great day - Patti J.
