I've also been thinking about more challenges. Are ya up for it???? What are your favourite challenges.....sketches, colour combos, themes....?? Tell me!!! I have some AMAZING PRIZES up my sleeves too!!!! Lots of fun!!!

Okay, calm down, Kim!!! The card. Today's card is an Edwin Magnolia stamp. My faves are the Tildas but I love the Edwins too! This one I had already stamped up and sitting on my craft table when my Copic markers showed up on Christmas Eve. So I started fooling around with them, of course and I coloured up this little guy. I just pulled out some random markers and started colouring! The cardstock is Papertrey white which seems to be great for the Copics and I ticketed corner punched the corners and matted it on Ballet Blue and the green is coordinating cardstock to go with the Paper Studio patterned papers. I added some orange brads, pop dotted it, added some American Crafts ribbon and stamped the A Muse sentiment on the bottom. Oh and of course I added Stickles to his wings!! So sweet!

So be sure to check back tomorrow for an MFT sneak peek!!! Heehee!!!

Hey Kim: I love the Edwin fishing, so colourful. Makes me think of a nice summer day. It is foggy today where I live. I see you are enjoying your Copic markers. Great job on colouring as usual.

Take care, Bela

Cute card!!! It makes me feel like spring is coming!! Great layout, and wonderful coloring!!
Also - the georgia pacific cardstock I use - I get in Minot, ND. So if you go over the border for some shopping, be sure to check that American Walmart!!

Great card, I've got this stamp and have yet to use it, you've certainly given me and idea. Maybe I'll have to incorporate something with nets as my next door neighbour is a keen fishing man and when I got up this morning he must have gone fishing last night as his nets were hanging over the line - not that they would dry in sunny old England (UK). Keep up the good work, I love looking at your site.

Another great card Kimmie you are always in inspiration. Challenges that sound good!!! I like layout ones personally, I think the proper term is a sketch!!!
