I Made It!!

Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms out there!! Today I have exciting news!! I was chosen to be on Crissy Armstrong's DT for her new challenge blog called Sunday's with Crissy!! OMG!! I was extremely surprised, shocked and thrilled beyond words!! With that said here is my card for today's challenge. This week the challenge is called Favorites. You can take this anyway you want, and I chose to work with this adorable digital image from Wags and Whiskers called Angel Whispers. It's one of my favorites because of this little puppy who looks exactly like my little fur baby!! I could not resist. My fur baby Sophie is a silky terrier and has a combination of light brown and gray hair. I had to play with the colors on the image to get it just right. One of the great things I love about copics and coloring is the challenge. Coloring different images are always new, and a bit intimidating but I think this is a great way to get better at it. I'm not copic certified so, this is my way of learning, LOL!! I have used a sketch from Friday Sketchers to create my card.
Here's a closer look at the card. I have used my Martha Stewart butterfly punches to add to the card, then glittered both the butterflies and the wings of my image. I then added some pretty flowers that I just received from Wild Orchid Crafts and some from Stamp and Create.
I love all of these stores and would highly recommend you check them out too.
This challenge is a bi weekly challenge which means you will have 2 weeks to join us for the fun!
All you need to do is use a digital image that Crissy drew, and follow the theme of the challenge, and upload your creation HERE. You can find Crissy's digital images at Whimsy Stamps, and Squigglefly. I hope you will join us!
Well, that's it for me today, I hope you have a great weekend! Enjoy!
