A Flower Pick'n Sneak Peek!

Hi Everyone~

Hope you are having a fantastic week! I have exams coming up in the next two weeks so things are going to be a bit crazy here...but I am really enjoying my classes this semester and I have some wonderful professors! YAY! In between my homework and studying I am still managing to fit in a little bit of crafty time!

Here is a sneak peek of a newbie that is at Club Anime! This cutie pie is Marissa! When I saw her I knew I had to try out making a fence card for her! I wish I could remember where I first saw this fence card...if I find the link I will definitely edit to let you know! :) I hate it when I lose things that I had saved...plus I am a firm believer that credit is due to the original creator!!!


The fence was created with my MS zig zag border punch, cuttlebug distressed stripes embossing folder, momento london fog ink pad, and stazon white ink pad. I absolutely LOVE how this turned out and have another fun project up my sleeve using this same technique !

Marissa was of course colored with my Copics on my new Neenah paper! Gosh I can't get over how much of a difference paper can make when coloring with Copics! I am so glad that I went to certification class because now I love my Copics even MORE with the right paper....and I seriously didn't think I would love my markers more! *Blush*

Here's a close up of Miss. Marissa:

And then here is the finished inside...pretty simple but elegant in my eyes!
Last but not least I have some fun to share with you! Our friend shared with us that you can get your broom to stand up by itself due to the way the planets are lined up, something with the fall equinox or something like that! This has been standing up since Sunday night and still hasn't fell down yet! Crazy! YES!!!! But it seriously is true...no strings attached, nothing holding it up!

Recipe:

Stamps: Marissa from Club Anime by InStyle Stamps; SU Itty Bitty Words
