Princess & the frog

Here's another darling from Saturated Canary. I could color these girls all day long!
I have another two to post in the next few days and then I think I had better move on to something else for a little while. :-)
I am still trying to figure out purples and lavenders in the Copic line. I have ordered three more to add to my collection and when I get & use them I'll let you know how they work for me, and post the number. I can easily see how one who colors becomes addicted to purchasing Copics, as I have become dependant myself. LOL
I told myself when my Pampered Chef carosel got full of markers I was going to stop buying them..........I lied!!
I have included a close-up of this card so you can see detail on the Princess & the little froggie, he's so cute!
Here are the elements for this card, as best as I can remember.

Skin- E0, 00, 000
Eyes- B91
Lips- R81, 30
Dress- V09, 04, 02, 00

Chipping Sparrow

Hello bloggers. It's been a while so I thought I'd better post so you don't think I died. It seems I'm always busy doing nothing, if that's possible, LOL

Here's a card I did for a friend to give for a birthday.
The reciepient was 100 years old last Friday!!! She still lives alone & manages by herself. But sad to say she has decided to move into a place near here that has small apartments that are in a community setting. They are nice though and she will have close neighbors to check on her. I would hope to do as well in my lifetime.
I noticed Blogger has changed their format, & I'm not liking it very much. I mean I was confused before and now I'm completely lost, yikes!
This image is out of the norm for me, but I do like to color flowers and animals, birds, etc. I just seem to gravitate to the girls and Fairies for no reason other than I like to color them.
This stamp is a new one I picked up at Creative Hideaway in Medford. It's from Stacy Stamps. I have a couple of her things and they are so pretty. Very lifelike. I've posted a closeup here so you can see the detail.
I didn't write down the Copics I used for this card as I was in a hurry to get it done, but I think I can remember most of them.
So here goes nothin'.
Flowers- R83, 81 & RV000
Leaves & halo- YG 67, 63, & G20
Bird-W5, W3, W1, E18, 17, 57, 11
Stamp & ink- Chipping Sparrow from Stacy Stamps, Whimsy Stamps Aged to Perfection Notables3, Memento Tuxedo black
Paper- DP, DCWV Mademoiselle, First Edition Isabelle, Core'dination whitewash pink, white cardstock from my stash
MS border punch
Dies- Spellbinders Labels Eighteen, Whimsy Notables 3 die, Magnolia Doohicky Doily Flowers, Die-Namics Fancy Flourish, Cherry Lynn Lace corner Deco E
All ribbon, rhinestones, glitter & charm are from my stash.

Well I think I've covered it all, but if not you can always ask me any question & I'll try my best to answer it. I'm not sure how to get a "contact me" button on here, I can't even seem to find my dashboard at the monent, but here's my email address for future reference,
Thanks for stopping by today & come again!
