Hello Spindle!

Hey, hey, hey!

Happy Saturday my friends! First I wanted to say how happy I am to hear you are enjoying the straight hair video on Color Me Copic. A quick FYI, that technique doesn't have to be used just on 'big heads'... I use it when I'm coloring in a lot of my TGF, CC Designs, Tickled Pink, etc. images... anything that has straight hair really. So there a lot of different characters that would be perfect for ya to use if you decide to join the CMC challenge that goes along with it. :)

Alrighty, time to introduce y'all to Spindle Mossyrock! She's another new Fairy Sweet digi being released at ATS on Monday the 13th. Spindle is in charge of making sure that each dew drop becomes an icy little crystal on those frosty Autumn mornings. Nothing makes her happier than to see the sparkling beauty as the light from the rising sun dances across each one. She doesn't even mind that her work of art is short lived as the sun eventually thaws out the dew drops, because that just means she gets to have fun doing it all again tomorrow! :)

Ready for more Spindle love? Then be sure to check out Traci's blog... there is so much cuteness going on over there!

OK, time for me to go enjoy my day off... catch ya later!
