As you have probably noticed, a few of my cards lately have featured the same CC Designs stamps - the reason for this is I got an order of stamps just prior to Christmas, and I can't help myself - I keep stamping them, and colouring them using all sorts of combinations of Copics and colours in the finished projects! I guess its the whole "new toy" thing hehe.

I won an online challenge today! The lovely Candy Stripes at The Lollipop Ladies have fortnightly challenges with sweet candy themes as inspiration - and my "Thinking Of You" card won the Chocolate Honeycomb inspired challenge! I'm so excited! I've won a gift voucher from Annabelle Stamps ... what a cool early chrissie present!

I love my Kraftin' Kimmie stamps, so have entered this week's challenge - "Let It Snow!" Only problem is, of course, being in Australia, we don't have a white Christmas - in fact, at the moment, we are having days in the high 20's (degrees celcius) and storms quite frequently! Added to this, it's really hard to find papers or embellishments that have anything to do with snow! But, I did find one paper - Holly Jolly "Let It Snow" by My Little Shoe Box. This paper has a teal base colour, so I matched it with Bazzill Bling, and a lovely Christine Re paper in cream with an embossed design. To highlight the snowflakes, I added Kaisercraft pearls in snow, and then Kindy Glitzed every dot :-) I coloured my Kimmie stamp with Copics ...
Hair: E51, E31, E33
Clothes: BG01, BG05, BG09, B00, B12, B05
Misc: BV00, BV02, BV04, RV000, RV02, RV04, R32, R35, G21, G24, G28
As this card also covers the Mad For Markers Non Traditional Christmas colours challenge, I decided to enter it in that challenge as well!

Spent today (apart from the time I spent doing housework!) making a couple of cards with stamped images coloured using my Copics. The birthday card will be for Katelyn, and the pirate card I did just because I could!

Tonight, have to finish off the dog coats I am making for Wiz the Pug, and Thunder the British Bulldog, so I can take them to work with me tomorrow. Must remember to get the clothes washed as well, or I will have nothing to wear to work this week!
Thursday night, is my 3rd scrapbooking class using Copic markers - I'm having so much fun learning how to use them! Looks like my scrapbooking is going to expand into cardmarking and stamping - guess it just means more mess!
So this morning wee toodled off the the showgrounds so Cath could see Gretchen for the first time since she put her on a plane 2 yrs ago!
Don't think Gretchen remembered her ... which doesn't surprise me ... she doesn't have a lot of grey matter between the ears! But Cath quite liked the way she turned out, which is good, and has told me to go ahead and breed her to Binkie (my boy at home) as he is getting older, and she has to yet find a dog suitable for Gretchen, who has good points to cover where Gretchen has bad ones.

It was beautiful! Literally, millions of tulips (... will upload photos shortly) in every concievable colour, from white through to black, and a miriade of varigated colours as well. I tried to take a photo of every different colour, but as the weather was overcast, the pics are not as bright as I would have liked, had it been a beautifully clear sunny day - but they still portray the colours fairly well.
We also visited the Da Vinci exhibition ... a showing of 60 of his more famous "inventions" taken from his codices (books he put together over his lifetime, containing all his notes, thoughts, and inventions). An amazing collection, which really makes you sit back and realise just how much this man has given the following generations.
So, a good day. Have had a laid back afternoon - just about to settle in and watch the last of the Rugby League grand final, have dinner, the visit my brother's family ...
