1st Copics card!

I got two sets of copics for my birthday- how lucky am I!! I also got the stamp I used on this card and a Stampavie Lelo Design one.
Here is my very first attempt at using my copics. Its not as hard as I thought it would be, however I have just ordered a Brilliance ink pad as the Versafine one has bled slightly. I loved using them and read several tutorials on it before I started, trouble is I want more already!
I defiantly wont give up using watercolouring techniques as sometime a subtle look is better but I think at the moment copics is my first love!!
The sketch is from this weeks Friday Sketchers Challenge, its been ages sine I entered a blog challenge, I used papers and letters from Doodlebug, prima flowers and Papermania brads.
A big thank you to Laura and Amanda for the fab cards and the stamped images you sent me, they were lovely!

Pink Wedding

Its been a busy few weeks for me at the moment so I haven't been able to craft very often let alone update my blog!

I have managed to make a wedding card for an order.
I used a cuttlebug embossing folder, prima flowers, computer generated sentiment, lace and ribbon.

I'm looking forward to my birthday on Wednesday, and hope to get lots of crafty stuff! I still have stamps yet to see ink, flowers I'm dying to use and lots of other bits that I've bought and not had time to use. I start my new job on Monday and still have orders of service and place cards to do for my brothers wedding so I don't think I'll get a chance to play with it very soon.

Thank you to Laura and to Kelly for giving me the top ten favourite blog award, i have it in a post below so wont put it back on here.

I had a fab time in Milan, Here are some pics for those who were kind enough to enquire and wish me a good time.

Published and More Gorjuss

Here is another Gorjuss Girls card I made this week, I hope you like it, I'm loving these stamps so much!
I have finally got my hands on a copy of Creativity 14 that has the two articles I did in it. I seem to be the last one to have seen it, someone at work who had seen it came up to me on Wednesday and was asking me about it but I hadn't seen it yet. I have taken some pictures and uploaded them here for you if you haven't got the mag, I so pleased with how they turned out.

Gotta go as I'm off to Milan for a hen weekend and am leaving in and hour and a half and haven't packed yet, unorganised-me?

Party Parade

I managed to find some time today to make a card with my new stamp Party Parade. I accidentally ordered two of these (must have been having a blonde moment) but luckily its now on its way to a good home with Amanda who I'm sure will make some fab creations using it.
I used DCWV papers and card, Prima flowers and I coloured it with whispers pens, however its my Birthday on the 18th so I have my fingers crossed that I'll be lucky enough to get some Copics, I cant wait to try colouring with them, the results I've seen look so fab!

I also received this award from Amanda, thank you its much appreciated. I'll have to have a think about who to pass it on to.
