Well here is my second attempt with my Copics. I am loving how you can blend them together. Experimenting with some colours here. Love the yellow, and wanted to add some orange, but only have YR24 Pale sepia, but it worked (kinda) lol.
This is for Lou's Challenge at Deb's Creations, and the challenge is "Fruit". (And apparently Holly berries ARE NOT fruit! - sheesh Lou!) rofl.

Well here is my first attempt with using my copics. Still a bit more practice maybe. I have used Vintage Tilda, some Basic Grey paper "Wassail" laurel leaves, Prima AntiqueMistletoe & part of some Prima Bling, and some Cherry blossoms. The ticket was given to me by the Fabulous Deb!

Well the weeks are ticking over so fast, it will be Christmas before we know it! This weeks Challenge at Let's Scrap, is another card sketch by the talented Kimmy! This sketch will help you get your Christmas cards over and done with!
This weeks sponsor is Scrapbook Parade
Big thankyou to them, so jump on over to Let's Scrap, and check out the wonderful cards on show.
For this card i have used some yummy Bobunny paper, and matched it to some eggplant coloured cardstock. I stamped the Penny Black Snowy stamp, and used a waterbrush, and eggplant marker to colour him in. I then added some glitter, (which i am still finding everywhere). I painted the chipboard snowflakes then embossed them with some white glitter embossing powder. I added a doily cut with my new Marianne design Creatables die. (isnt it just gorgeous!!) To finish it off i printed off a free digital stamp from BizzyBecs's

Please come back and be part of our community online
We could really do with your help otherwise we may need to shut the forum down.
Activity on the forum has just about come to a stand still and we need to get more people active on here or unfortunately it will need to close. The Design Team has tried their very best to offer exciting challenges, swaps and interesting chat but unless people participate it really is pointless.
I would like to say a BIG thank you to those who have tried to keep things going and have entered in the swaps and challenges, I really appreciate your efforts.
So this is our last ditch effort - I hope that we can see everyone back on here soon.
Hope to see you there

Another week brings around another Fantastic sketch from Cheri, over at Let's Scrap. I really like this one. I can see lots of potential layouts here.
This week's sponsor is Paper wishes.
Here is my layout for this weeks sketch, I have used a photo of Hannah, when she was only 6 months old.
I saw this photo and the paper just seemed to go perfectly with it. The paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle, the "Sharon Ann" delightful collection. I have used a Chippie from Dusty Attic for the title, which i painted then applied glitter. The pocket is from Maya Road, and i cut out a backing sheet from Prima flowers, to put on the front of it. (it went so nicely with the layout!!)
I have used some flowers from my stash and some pink cherry blossoms from Deb's Creations.
I even pulled out the sewing machine to sew the circle, i was amazed i even had pink thread in the cupboard.
I have entered this in a challenge over at Deb's Creations . Sam has set a recipe challenge. So pop over and check it out.

I have used Prima Fairy Flora Collection paper. Boy it is so pretty, i didnt want to cut it! I have used my new Magnolia Dies for the top border, swirls and leaves , and the button is from the Purple Pumpkin.
