It's all about the hair...

Hey there friends!

Are you doing a double take? No your eyes are not deceiving you... there is a brand new Creeper gal on the Farm! I gotta admit that she is my new fave Creeper and she is actually part of the Sweet & Toxic 4x6 set where she comes accompanied by the very first Creeper dude to see rubber! Now, the Farmers over at the TGF blog are the ones doing the official preview today so be sure to skip on over and check out all of their fab cards using this new set!

Even though I'm not part of the official preview today, I just had to use her because she is the perfect tie in to the big announcement that I have to share with y'all. :)

So I've been asked if I would share how I color hair with my Copic markers and I'm excited to say that my very first video tutorial is now up over on the Color Me Copic blog! For my first time out I have gone with a curly hair tutorial that I hope you all enjoy. Seriously, I have never done anything like this before so it may be a bit rough around the edges and I swear I don't usually talk like Bob Ross in my everyday life either, LOL! But at the very least you will see my process and if you like it there is a 'feathered straight hair' tutorial following shortly. ;)

I can't wait to see what you gals think and if there is anything else you are interested in seeing me do a video of just let me know here and I will do my best to put something together.

But the fun doesn't end there! There is also a new CMC challenge to go along with the video that is being sponsored by Sweet November Stamps! Surprise, surprise it is a 'coloring curly hair' challenge and the winner will get one of the new SNS September release stamps! I really can't wait to see what you all do! :)

Oh Amy, I just love these Creeper Crew, and I just can not wait to get me the set. As for your video I have already watched it and I can not wait for your next one. You sounded just fine to me. As for what I would love to see you do a video of, well....Just about anything you want to. I think you did a great job. You didn't speak like alot of people do and go umm or anything. :D great job my friend. Hugs, Lisa

HaHa! When you told me that the new Creeper was your favorite and then I got mine the next day, I assumed it was the other one in the set because he is MY favorite! I actually e-mailed Jess and told her I have been in love with fictional guys before but I think this is my first crush on rubber! I have to go ch3eck out the CMC blog now - for whatever reason it won't let me Follow it so I never see when something new is posted! :-)Traci
