Sweet Sophie

Hi everyone and Happy Monday to you!  Hopefully you all enjoyed the weekend. I for one am looking forward to this week as it will be a short one and then I will be on vacation for a few days.  So today I'm sharing my card for the next Color Me Creative Copic Challenge.  This time it's a color challenge and we want to see you use Red, Turquoise, and Cream/Whites with your Copics.  Our sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter and the design team was lucky enough to be able to use an image from The Paper Shelter.

There are plenty of cute digis to choose from and I chose Sophie in the Country.  This isn't a color combo that I would typically use, but I'm really happy with how this card turned out.  I added some grass blades on the bottom there.   Plus, I gave her toenails a bit of color.

Anyone can play along with us and the randomly chosen winner will get a $15 gift certificate to spend at The Paper Shelter online store.  Plus, each month the challenge entries are put into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to  You've got two chances to win, but you've got to play along.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Kick Up Your Heels

Well, hello again and happy Monday to you! I'm back again with another challenge over at the Color Me Creative Classroom.  This time we would like to see you use your favorite Copic technique.  I took Suzanne Dean's CMC On the Road class and learned the feathering technique and I LOVED it!

I seem to be using orange quite a bit this year and thought I'd try this technique with orange & yellow.  I just love this color combination. Tiffany's Doodles is our sponsor and Tiffany was kind enough to let us each pick an image to use for this challenge and I knew the feathering technique would look great on this pretty Summer Dress.

Now remember, anyone can play along, plus the winner gets 10 digital stamps of their choice from Tiffany's Doodles.  But wait...that's not all...each CMC challenge entry will be entered into a monthly drawing for a $50 gift certificate to!  What do you think about that?  Not one, but TWO chances to win.  You have until July 22nd at 8:00 pm EST to get your entry in to the CMC Copic Challenge.  We'd love to have you play along!
