Isn't this just the cutest image from Delightful Inspiration ... all the more delightful cuz I got it free >^..^<. You can scroll down and click on their logo on the left to go visit and get your own!

I got some permanent Bic markers and used them for 3 of the cups ... did one of the cups with my copics.

Can you tell which one is copic colored?

Heyyyyy Juliet ...

She challenged me to do the card you see here ... and I followed the tutorial by Michelle Zindorf and came up with this card.

I think we should do this one next.

Teapot Tuesday...Apple tree

Teapot Tuesday at Splitcoast has us chasing down an apple picking pusher perpetrator. Since that probably doesn't make sense, hop on over to Splitcoast and hear the whole apple picking story.

Look what I found at Juliet's Blog!

I was blog surfing today and found this Valentine by Juliet that looks a great deal like the Christmas card I sent her ... turns out she scanned it, cleaned it up and recycled it into a Valentine. I am honestly Honored!

PLEASE note that the branch is adapted from an original design available from stampingbella-branch with birdies

Juliet's black birds

Juliet chose this tutorial from the Zindorf blog for our next challenge. I kind of wish I hadn't colored in the leaves ... but I don't wish it enough to re-do the card.

Sunday featured stamper

I looked at a lot of cards before I decided which one to case for the Sunday Featured stamper at Splitcoast. Since I didn't have the Whipper snapper stamp, I drew the image in pencil then went over it with black gel pen and finally with a durango colored marker. I think it turned out kind of cute!

Amazing what you can do if you can't get at your usual supplies. I used glitter glue for brads, and had no solid colors to layer so I drew a line around the edges with my marker. I used kitchen string in place of ribbon. And I met my New Year's Resolution to decorate envelopes and insides.

The links below are other cards I considered casing before I settled on this one.

I saved them here for myself in case I need inspiration later in the week.

This image was free at this site; and if you put that I am your friend, I will get a free image ... hint hint hint ...

I printed the image off on cardstock and colored it with my copics.

I forgot to say that I entered the challenge as a friend of Juliet A -- so I hope she gets the credit for it anyway!
