Some Soon To Be Released MFT & MME {CHA} Stuff!

While I was busy eating and shopping in Chicago...I did manage to get a few stampy goodies to play with!
One thing I got is a pad of soon to be released My Minds Eye paper.  It's from their 6x6 Collection and it's called Honey Pie.
The other is a My Favorite Things Pure Innocence girlie that is part of their next release...she's Sunflower Girl and as adorable as can be!
Here is a card I made using my new goodies:
I was so inspired I did something I never do...I even fancied up the insides...that sentiment is too sweet not to show :)

Thanks for visiting me, I hope you like my card :)
Let me know if you do!
Have a FABULOUS day!

I {actually} Colored This!

Hello, hello!
I had a very exciting, quick trip to Chicago for some fun and shopping.  While I was there my sweet sister (soul), Beate, taught me some of her skillzzz in the Copic coloring category!
I began the day with NO skills and she showed me some tricks and gave me some tips and I made this:
It only took me coloring about 4 of these cute MFT girls to get it right...not TOO bad, lol!
I learned some flicking and how to color hair and how to make cute cheeks and all that good stuff!
Now I need to get some more markers so I can PRACTICE...it do believe practicing is the trick!

I'm pretty proud of me :)

Here are a few pics of my adventure...
(there are lots more on FB so I don't have them here)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Half of them were taken with my phone so they aren't the best BUT I did have the BEST time...that's really what matters in life, isn't it!??

Have a FAB day!

Welcome, welcome to the 3rd day of this fabulous Inspiration Hop using all the new Gina K. Designs stamps!

Today's stamp set is the FREE one....Bold and Beautiful...which reminds me of a soap opera, which reminds me of All My Children and reminds me that it's being canceled which makes me weepy, which makes me mess up my eye makeup...and so on and so on...LOL

Here is my card I made for you:
I promise to you I was standing outside, last night, and it had been storming and raining all day and evening and the very edge of the horizon were these colors with the black trees in front of it...it was SO pretty!  So I ran in and made a card to match my sky :)
Hope you like it!
The black and white paper is in the Stamp TV kit, Vintage Chic.
