The Sweet Stop Sketch 128 and I Am So Excited

What a busy week it has been outside of crafting this week and I am so happy it actually rained one day...yipppe.  The ground was so dry it soaked it up by morining but it was great.  I have so much to share I don't know where to begin.  I am going to do a little Ink Spot Recap to let you know about some things but first by BIG news.
I have been keeping a secret and I can finally share it with you.  If you follow me you know coloring with my Copics is probably my favorite thing ever.  To me a colored image is my embellishment.  When I first got my markers I discovered I had no idea how to use them so I Googled and found tutorials from Suzanne Dean and shortly after that she started her on line Copic Classes at Color Me Creative Classroom and I signed up for class 2 and the improvement was amazing.  Here we are today and I can't even believe it I am now a member of the Color Me Creative Copic Challenge Design Team:) To be on a team with the person who taught me so much and to be with an exceptionally talented and sweet group of ladies is a blessing.  So I hope that you will check out the challenge and the classes if you love Copics like I do and please visit the other wonderful team members I will have them on the side bar.
Ink Spots
And last but certainly not least this weeks
This month we are revisiting some great sketches from the past.
Now I have to say I goofed a little.. I wanted my iamge to be a bit more of a square but I printed one a bit smaller and then didn't realize until I was almost done it was the wrong one, oh well the elements of the sketch are the same.
 Yes, I found some more totally cute digi stamps from  Saturated Canary this one is Violet Ragamuffin and I love her!!  I will be using more to come because coloring these is so much fun with that great hair.

Congrats Shelby... I'm so glad you're achieving the things you aspire to in your card making, you really do deserve it you know :-) The colouring of Violets hair is out of this world, such depth! They're great images, it's all your fault if they start appearing in my cards now! I'm actually a bit embarrassed that you describe this as a long post, what does that make every one of mine, look - even my comments are long, lol Dee
