"TWO" Sweet!!!

It's finally Saturday! Looks like today will be my only day for rest this weekend. My brother-in-law will be getting married on Sunday so it will be pretty hectic. I hope all of you are enjoying your weekend and ready to join in for some fun stuff!! First up is a card I made for the new Copic Creations challenge which is Monochromatic Coloring. I LOVE this technique for coloring, it was lots of fun and plan on doing more of these in the future. This challenge was sponsored by Paper Makeup Stamps. There are lots of cute and fun images to choose from. The image I chose is called Moody for Fun. I love these cute and sassy girls.
The shades I chose were on the softer side. They are W0, W1, W3,W5. I hardly ever use the W's and felt I should give it a try today.

My next creation is for a new challenge with Tamiko's!! This challenge is to create a 6x6 scrapbook page using some black in your page. I have not created a page in many, many years! I really had fun putting this one together using a photo of my niece when she turned 2 years old.
Hopefully this will be the start of making at least a page a month.
The image I used is from The Greeting Farm, she is called Cuddle Anya and you can get her from Tamiko's Online Store. The teddy bear heads are from the bear that Cuddle Anya is holding. I just stamped and colored his head 3 times. Remember that you will get FREE Shipping on your $25 order with Tamiko's, so RUN on over to get her and more!! I hope that you will join us for the challenges this weekend!! I'm still not feeling well but will try to get to comment on your blogs today.

Love the cards. It came out great. I love the W's, but then I often have a stone wall or something in the picture too. Like the layout. Very sweet. Hope you start feeling better and can enjoy the wedding.
