Tilda Birthday card

Hello my friends! Hope you are having a wonderful week now that Fall is finally here. I have always loved the look of images colored using Copic markers but thought they were on the expensive side.  Last July my sister gave me a Michaels' giftcard for my B-day and since Michaels started carrying Sketch Copic markers, I took advantage of their 45% off coupon for entire purchase on artists' markers and bought a bunch.  My husband saw how I was excited about the markers, so he gave me extra money to buy some more.  

I really wanted to play with my Copics right away but unfortunately my work kept me pretty busy  for the last two months, so I didn't have a chance to play.  Things at work have finally slowed down and decided to give it a try.  This is the first time I'm coloring a stamped image using Copics and really hope you like it.  I know I still have a lot to learn, but wanted to show you what I have been doing. I have also been working on a bunch of other projects that I'm planning to share with you this week.  Thanks for looking!!

Cricut 360 Challenge No. 12

Hello my friends!  First of all, I would like to apologize for not posting anything for last week's challenge at the Cricut 360.  Things at work had been very hectic and I didn't have the time to design for last week's challenge. Still pretty busy but I hope that things start to slow down by next week so that I can have a little "me time" and start creating.
Anyway, this week's challenge at Cricut 360 is to create a card or layout to celebrate Native American Day (September 19).  This is my take for this challenge.  I decided to use a very well known Indian proverb as inspiration and hope you like it. 
If your would like to play along this week, please join us at Cricut 360!
