Hey, all! I received a sweet little package on Saturday and do you know what was inside? The new Halloween images from Kraftin' Kimmies and a few of the Fairytale ladies, too. This package was from Mom ;D She frequently sends me stamp care packages. I know...I'm a 43 year old, spoiled rotten brat. Ever buy unmounted stamps and let them sit around until they practically start growing moss before mounting them? I do that...A LOT! That was NOT the case with these puppies. They arrived Saturday afternoon and were mounted on cling about an hour after pulling them out of the mailbox...lol!
I couldn't wait to get this beauty inked up. This is Goldilocks and she has some seriously radical hair, which was great fun to color. I just love her! Do you see my matchy, matchy flowers? I recently purchased a HUUUUGGGGEEE bag of white layering flowers by Petaloo, which was marked 50% off at Two Peas in a Bucket. They are awesome! I can take my Copics and make them any color I want, which means I will always have the right color of flowers on hand. Perfect! Of course, I am probably wasting a ton of ink, but it doesn't seem like it.
I also wanted to mention that yesterday I spent the day with Nancy and some of my favorite ladies from China Phoenix 2, my teaching pals, Kathy and Sue. We attended the first ever Copic Certification class held in New Mexico, this one being right here in Albuquerque! We had a wonderful day learning all of the intricate details about Copic Markers, what makes them special, and how to use them with skill and panache. We had a fabulous teacher, Jennie Black, who walked us through all of the fine points, showed us lots of tricks, and helped hone our coloring skills. It was a great day! You might be wondering where my Copic Certification badge is and why it's not displayed on my blog yet. It's on it's way and as soon as it arrives, it will be making a grand appearance here. Maybe I should have a special ceremony for it...lol! An unveiling of sorts ;D
