...After many days of miserable weather and all this awful rain, it looks like it's over for awhile. I hope so, because the flooding has been terrible. We need a break from the rain and some warm sunshine to dry thing out. Tomorrow, I HOPE to see the sun again, at last.
My back is finally feeling a little better and that's good, because I have a lot to do in the next few days. Today, has been busy and very productive and after been stuck inside, it was nice to get out, even if only for errands. I headed off early to the PO to mail off packages to two of the gals from my SSC Group. One is for a Swap and this second is an RAK. I really enjoy Swaps, Trades and RAK's and LOVE to share, so this was fun for me. And speaking of fun and sharing, I received a nice surprise from my "Secret Sister" on the weekend, which was a perfect for me. If my Secret Sister happens to read my BLOG, I want her to know that I really LOVED my package and I want to again say - Thank you!
After I mailed of the packages, my next stop was at "Tucks Candies", our local "Candy and Gift Shop. I bought DH, my Mom and each of my 'Boys' some delicious "Homemade" Chocolate treats for Easter. I also picked up a few gifts for some upcoming birthdays. It's really a nice store and the chocolates and homemade taffy is wonderful. It's hard to be in there and not want to eat or buy some candy. Yummy!! I finished up with my gifts and came home to work on some cards.
I finished up two cards that are both for challenges over at the Simply Scrapping Crafts Challenge Group. I used the same Magnolia "Tilda" for both challenges, but I colored her in totally different colors and used different papers and embellishments on each.
This first card is for the Color Combo Challenge and this one is was created in shades of pinks and pink violets --
And the second card, is the same Tilda, but colored in shades of aqua and teal and this card is for the Copic Coloring Challenge -
I also did more practice coloring with the same image for my Copic Coloring classes that I am taking from Suzanne Dean. I'll be heading there now to post the images and too watch my next video. I really enjoy the classes and the challenges and it's nice to have this hobby to keep me busy.
Oh and speaking of challenges, today I received the four adorable digi-images that I won from In-Style Stamps! for the Copic Colour Challenge. I printed out one set today and hope to work on coloring them later. Here a link to "Honey Bunny", which is one of the images I picked out - Click Here! If you like him, then Hop on over to In-Style and you can buy one for your digi collection. I think it will make a super cute Easter or Baby card.
I'm off now to color.....see you all later!!
