If you like Pina Coladas....

Happy Saturday, everyone! I am enjoying a lazy morning with the fam watching Batman Begins. What a great movie!

Anyway, it's time again for a Sketch for You to Try! I did pretty good at sticking with this one, don'tcha think? YAY, ME!

My new fairies and Stellas came today from Stamping Bella, and I have been itching to play with my favorite: Stella with an Olive on Top. Isn't she so much fun?? I love how her crown is sideways on her head...she reminds me of a crazy fairy godmother of sorts that's always got one foot out of trouble.

I also got my new Basic Grey pads from Verve Visual yesterday (happy mail day!!), and this Cupcake paper was just a party waiting to happen with Stella. Whatcha think?

I am still practicing my Copic skillz, but I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out. She was so fun! And the A Muse sentiment topped it off perfectly.

Thanks for hanging with me today, and make sure you check out Sarah & Jen's samples on Jen's blog, as well as Amy, Carole, & Susan's take on this sketch. If you upload to SCS, don't forget to use the keyword SFYTT so we can all check out your creations!

Have a great Saturday!

Love her, Shannan!!! Your coloring looks fabulous, too. Just picked up 5 Copics yesterday to see what the fuss is all about. If I can make them look even half as good, I'll be happy!

Joan B said...

Wow, this is so beautifully done. I can't get over your shading with the copics -- that gray is marvelous!!! I have had no luck with my copics, so I'll have to practice more. This stamp is adorable and you made an awesome card with it.

Shannan-
I am SO with you 'sistah'!! I too just got a few fairies and STELLA (with an olive on top)---LOVE her!!!
I'm SO jealous of your coloring!!! I've put off investing in any copics thinking 'I didn't really need them', and 'I'm really not much of a 'marker' person' but I KEEP seeing all this wonderful work with them and wonder....COULD I??? How easy OR difficult are they to work with....REALLY?????
I'll be back! Your blog rocks!
