High Hopes Hullabaloo day 3!!

Well, it's the final day of the Hullabaloo....the stamps will be released tomorrow morning!! How exciting!! I'm telling ya, these releases just get better & better!! I'm so glad I'm on the design team, I wouldn't be able to afford all the stamps I'd want!!



For today's card, I used the little cleaning girl. I seem to be using a lot of bright colors lately!! This one uses SEI Dill Blossom, paired with SU's Tempting Turquoise & Old Olive. I bravely colored her with my Copics....oh how I wanted to reach for my pencils, but I persevered. There are so many different ways to color with Copics, it's all about finding which method works best for me. So I keep at it. I added some flower dies, a Prima with a rhinestone, & some leaves to the corner, & the sentiment (also a new release) was punched out using my Word Window Punch. The Turquoise matte for that was punched with my McGill Retro Word punch......that punch was my very first purchase at Hobby Lobby a few years ago & I just love it. A little twine finishes it off.

Here's a list of Diva's who also have sneekie peekies for you today:

I hope you've enjoyed all the previews of what's to come tomorrow morning!! I will be back tomorrow with my challenge card!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

wow! I get to be first! Love this card! what great colors and papers! You have nothing to fear from your copics! You do great work with them!
I ALWAYS love your details-the flower, the sentiment!

And, because I must, another question-Can you tell me when you posted the info on the homemade light box? I bought all the materials at the time and now can't find the directions I printed out!

This is adorable... and I know what you mean about reaching for your pencils... I am new to copics myself and just found out about picking up one color with another for blending... but it looks like you have it down pat...
