Hello friend...


I've got a couple days off ahead of me and I really need to do a major clean up in my crafty room. All of the Christmas papers and supplies need to get off my table and be put away until it is time for holiday cards again. As it is now, I've only got like a 6x6 space clear enough to create on and that is just now conducive to me getting much done at the moment.

I actually made this card because I didn't want to try digging anything out from the clutter. This new Best Friends stamp set from MFT was right at hand so I decided to not fool around with any papers or anything, simply stamp a whole scene and go. No matching Copic colors to papers, I just did whatever I wanted to and the result is a very spring time looking card. I gotta say, the spring dreaming doesn't seem so far off here... we still haven't gotten any snow this year which is quite unusual. If it wasn't for the below freezing temps a person could think that we were closer to tulips and other green growing things than we really are.

One last thing before I go... CHA is coming up this weekend and I've been busy checking out all the new goodies being sneak peeked but I haven't seen any news about whether Copic will be releasing new marker colors this year. Anyone know if we can look forward to some new markers or not? I've still got a couple color families that I would like to see expanded so I'm remaining hopeful. :)

Oh my goodness! I MUST, MUST, MUST get this stamp! I have five doxies, so this is perfect for me! Love your card!!!

PS - Wanted to let you know that I won a stamp set from you last Christmas, and I used it to make my Christmas cards this year. :o) It was a stamp of a little boy holding a package ~ so cute, and I colored it to look like my son when he was little. :o)
