Good Afternoon Everyone! I bet you were wondering what happened to me? Well, the heat had gotten to me! LOL! It has kicked up my Asthma, so I have had a rough few days! One of the biggest things that I MUST tell you is... due to the heat and my asthma, I have had to put my Copic Markers away :( ! Since I have not been able to open the windows, they have been bothering me. But, it has NOT stopped me from coloring and creating! Just made me step outside my comfort zone a bit faster than anticipated... I have now taken the dive into Prisma Colored Pencils! Wow, they have their own learning curved! But as you can see, I think I am getting it down pat, slowly!
Today's creation is for Paper Creations Ink, the new challenge is up and in full swing! The theme is "Christmas In July", we are so proud to have Aletha J Williams, Ippity Chick as our sponsor for this challenge! How cool is that? The set that I have used here is actually a Unity set; but since Unity makes Ippity Stamps... we thought it would be okay to create with it! The challenge will run until Sunday, July 31, 2011 at 7pm CST... so you have plenty of time to get a head start on your Holiday Projects and get them linked up! The prize that one lucky person will receive is the "Kissmas & Mistletoe Ippity Set"!!! (See Picture Below) I am so excited as I did have a chance to play with that set; but you will have to wait to see my creations! (Hee-Hee)
