So tweet

Hellooooo Saturday, LOL!

So any big plans for the weekend? I've got things to do and people to see and it's all good. I'm happy to say that my week is ending on a much better note than it started. A small part of that is the happy mail that my awesome mail lady brought yesterday... my pre-order of the 12 new Copic colors are here, yeah! I'm a total marker geek because I couldn't wait to print out a new color chart and get it all filled in so that it would be ready the next time I sat down to work on an image. Even geekier... I've already started putting together a wish list of the next colors I would love to see Copic come out with. I know, it's terrible! What can I say, I'm slightly obsessed! :)

Ok, ok, on to my card... I couldn't resist printing out another of the super cute new Wryn digi stamps from Tiddly Inks. This one is Wryn and wren too tweet and boy are they ever! I was actually organizing and putting paper away when I came across this scrap of October Afternoon that I had used on a previous card last month and as soon as I saw it knew what this card's 'story' would be. Wryn is a cute little farm girl who is out watching the chicks hatch on an early spring day. And I even found this cluster of eggs stamp in an old Verve Easter set that was the perfect accent, though I did create the cracked egg by altering the largest egg and cutting it apart. Wryn's dress is paper pieced with that fab grey plaid... I know, more grey and yellow, but it's so pretty and I'm embracing the trend! ;)

Alrighty, well thanks for dropping by and take it easy my friends. Tomorrow I've got a brand new SN Spotlight to share with you which will be kicking off February previews at ATS... exciting! Hope to see ya then!
