So glad

Hey, hey, hey... it's Friday!
Any big plans for the weekend? I've got to work tomorrow and Sunday... again... but once I get home I plan to enjoy the sunshine and warm weather that we are having here. :)

So I've got a fun announcement to share with ya today. There is a new blog starting up in a couple of weeks... Color Me Copic! It is an informational blog started by a few of us fellow Copic lovers and it’s launching on May 28th. This isn’t a challenge site and we aren’t selling anything, we’re just Copic lovers like you who wanted to put some information out there because we've been asked a lot of questions and want to share what we know. There will be photo tutorials, video tutorials and you are encouraged to ask us questions and let us know what you are interested in seeing covered. So if there is anything I've colored here that you would like to see more about how that look was achieved just drop me a line here, by email or at CMC once it is up, and I will do my best to spread the Copic love. ;)

Ok, my card today features another Roll Call cutie, this time miss Nahla reluctantly let her shy self be caught in the spotlight. Now I pulled all my colors and papers for this card from the cool pieced tree that was part of a package of paper crafting goodies that my sweet blog friend Rinne sent me. She has such a fresh, eclectic style that simply inspires me and it has been a real treat to dabble in her style a bit... thanks again Rinne! :)
Don't forget that tomorrow is the official release day for the Roll Call set over at TGF... with ten full size Wild Sprouts I highly recommend grabbing this up if you can, you won't regret it!

Alrighty, time for me to make like a banana and split... see ya!

Shaela said...

so exciting! I will have to follow the blog once it's all setup :)

one thing I LOVE that you do is list all your copics for a project. For example, I can never get blonde hair to look right with the colors I have. But this card's cutie has the EXACT shades of hair I want, so now I know what copics to use! :)

ChickieChirps said...

Another neat card! I love the papers you have used and I agree with Shaela, your blonde hair colouring is great!

Looking forward to reading the tips and techniques on the new blog!
