Good Morning All and Happy Saturday,
This morning I am posting this card I made for The Rubber Room. This stamp is from The Greeting Farm I colour her in Copic Markers and the paper is from Pink Filigree Corner, I cut out some of the small flowers and glued them on with the edges curled up. I think this would make a very cute birthday card for a little girl.
Have a great Saturday and weekend.
All products used came from The Rubber Room and online store.

Good Afternoon Everyone,
Today I am getting ready for yet another year end of school. I thought this would be a very cute sample for a child to give to there teacher as a Thank You card at the end of school. I don't know about you but I the first think I thought of and remembered was that green paper lining the upper walls of the classroom with the alphabet on it, no naturally I had to add it to my card.
The Stamp is by The Greeting Farm, I used a pergamono pencil on the black card stock to make it look like a chalk board. The teacher I did in Copics and used Y08 Acid Yellow for the hair,and R27 Cadmuim Red. This is for the Copic Colour Challenge #14:
So this weeks challenge colours for you all are:
Y08 Acid Yellow
R27 Cadmuim Red
B14 Bright Blue.
This card was made using supplies that were purchased from The Rubberrom and their online store.
Thanks for stopping by
Have a wonderful day

This card I made is not only a double whammy being that it can be entered in two different challenges:
Welcome to the Copic Colour Challenge - Challenge 13 !
This weeks Challenge is a little different, we want you to follow Maddy's sketch below . You can use whatever colours in copics you wish this week ! You can turn the sketch round if you wish to also .
High Hopes Challenge #31
Can Ya Doodle???
Can Ya Doodle??? Now this can be doodling around the frame of your image, you can doodle to make your own patterned paper, it can be any extra pen work you do on your card.
But it was also a good-bye card for a very close friend and co-worker who has not left to move to the US where she is going to marry the man of her dreams. Amber was and still is, all be it now a long distance, friend. We spend many Sundays at work doing Crafts of some sort, some for work, some for fun. But I am getting off topic. As I was saying this card I made her because she is now on to her new position as a housewife. Hence the play saying on the card.
I added the "doodles" around the edges of the picture frame and coming form the flowers, for the high hopes Challenge. For the Copic Challenge instead of circles I used flowers and for the straight line I used my ribbon. I used Copic Markers to colour the girl in. The Stamps is from High Hopes newest releases.
All supplies I used for this card are from The Rubber Room and on line store.

Good Evening everyone!
So tonight I am posting a sample I did for The Rubber Room, I got the idea from Splitcoaststampers, sorry don't remember who I got the pattern from but I will try and find it out to link up. The stamps I used where from Pink Cat Studios. I coloured them with Copic Markers. I wanted to add something a little different and so I mounted the kids on the bike with a spring, this nifty little trick I leaned from Karen, or as I like to call her Jedi Master. I figured it added something to the whole card. All supplies come from The Rubber Room and their on line store.
I am not sure what else I should add to these blog entries so if you find I am missing something please let me know as I am learning the ropes so to speak.
Hope you have a wonderful evening. Thanks for stopping by.

Let me start by saying to all Mothers, HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!!! I can't say this enough because I know what I was like growing up and what my poor mother had to put up with and still has to put up with.
Okay now on to what I did for my mom for her special day, well one of them anyways (lol). I made this really cute wheel barrel, that I got from Card Carousel and enlarged to 150%. The little watering bug is from High Hopes Rubber Stamps and the flowers well they came from my stash that I got here there and everywhere. I coloured with Copics. All other supplies not already listed I purchased from The Rubber Room and on line store.
Hope everyone has a wonderful night and a great Mothers Day!
P.S. Yes I have to say I also put under the flowers a GC for a Gardening Store that my mom loves to go to. This was a gift from Phil and I.

I am submitting my Danni Dress Up for the Copic challenge 11 the colours we had to use were Y08, BG13, E31. Since I only have Y08 I used that as my focal point by doing the dress in this color. I had to put the red for the hat, shoes and gloves but I just love the sharpness of the colour with the yellow. The purple boa, well hey don't all Red Hat ladies have a purple boa. I also used Stickles on the dress to make it look like it had glitz on it. The stamp is by High Hopes and all supplies used in this card I purchased from the Rubber Room.
Have a wonderful evening
Tonight I finished off two cards of the same stamp one done in Prismacolor pencils with OMS and the other with Copic markers because I am going to try my hand at another challenge. Wish me luck.
This card is done as I said with prismacolor pencils and OMS. I also used stickles and Glossy accents on her pearls. I want to say a HUGE thank you to both Cathy and Karen at the Rubber Room who helped me pick out the paper to do both my cards. This and/or the my Copic card will be on display at the Rubber Room. That I am leaving in Cathy's ball court as to which one or both or hey neither she wants. Thanks for stopping by.

Good Evening everyone,
Well Tonight the hour is growing late and I must be up for work in the morning but I though I would show you what I worked on last night while at the Rubber Room with Cathy and Joe and Karen stopped by too. This adorable little girl was what I wanted to do, although I by looking at this card I have to really take a computer course in how to get the true colours to come out in the pictures. This little girl was done on pink and navy card stock, the flowered background paper is a pinky orange kind of colour. Anyways I am getting way off track. I did this girl in prismacolor pencils (for the flesh tones) and copic markers. On the bear I got a piece of plastic and dabbed on some dark brown to make it look like fur, this is very hard to see in the picture but it is there. I then coloured around the whole picture in a very light blue prismacolour pencil and of course it and the flesh tones I used orderless mineral spirits.
Have a good night everyone and a great weekend.
