Happy Tuesday!

Hidey ho hoppers! Tuesday morning rhymes and a creation for you as well! I should be your first stop after leaving the QKD blog. If no, head on over there and start at the beginning! So, are you having a nice morning? I am tracking my iPad online. That's right, it shipped!! Yesterday morning it was in China, now Hong Kong, I shall continue to stalk the FedEx man! I'll keep everyone posted and hopefully next week I'll be extolling the virtues of the iPad!

Well, we had a fabu sketch to work with this week, one that I kind of, ahem, altered.:) For this one I am featuring some older stamps and some new treats.

Where to begin, where to begin... I started by taking a standard sized card and then I traced out one of our new templates and cut it out. Don't you just LOVE that pattern??? I matted the image with some gray paper and used one of our older background stamps for a little bit of texture. Then I colored up a Bodice Image with some Copics. Do you see the new Happy Stixx?? I roughed that up a bit too and colored it with a Copic marker. I am ridiculously pleased with this one and I hope you like it too!!

Well, that's it for me for now! head on over to Nancy and see what she has in store for you!

Enjoy!
Lara
