Hello Dreamer

Hello!  Happy weekend!  I can't believe how fast August is flying by!  I feel a little crunched for time trying to squeeze every little bit in.  I think I made a record number of cards these past couple of months.  I still have a ton to share!

Today is sketch #26 for TGF over on SplitcoastStampers.  Kelli made up the sketch this week and I loved it! 

 
I love the Beans so much!  Totally adorable!  I used Glisten Bean and colored her up with Copics.  My banners were made with PTI's banner die.

I love these Echo Park papers!  I am actually using my paper pads!  Totally not hoarding these days.  And I'm almost out of PTI's white cardstock that I usually use to color on when I make my simple one layer cards.  I was going to order more since I have some points leftover but the value is so not worth it when the shipping cost is more than the product itself!  I so don't like that!  And if I added one more package of cardstock, the shipping cost doubled!  So, what kind of white cardstock do you use that is also good for Copics?  I usually use the Xpress it paper for when I want to cut the image out.  Just cause it is thinner.  I'm so bummed with first the Copics and now my PTI white cardstock.

Thanks for reading!

Cute! Love the cheery colors on this one! Would it be too much for me to make 1 card with the sketch, color challenge and school theme? Hee hee! Well, I should try and finish a photo book first... Yeah, you poor people in Hawaii!

I know...August is whizzing by! I'm glad you're able to squeeze some crafting time in because I love what you make. This card is adorable - I especially like the cute tummy.

You're rocking the blonde hair lately! She's adorable! And love the mix of colors and patterns in your design! Right now I'm using Copic Xpress It blending paper (won a giveaway for Oozak's). I was using Gina's cardstock, but too thick and there's a coating. PTI was okay. I tried Neenah's but the copics bled a lot.
