I'm Back!!

After I rather long absence from blogging, I have decided to get back on the saddle!! I have once again been bitten by the cardmaking and stamping bug, and have been making cards like there is no tomorrow! I have also decided to try and get more involved with other sites, and to do challenges etc. I am also SOOOOO very excited. My birthday is on the 21st of this month and I am going to be getting about 42 Copics Markers. I have been doing a lot of research, and truly believe this is the way to go. So I am counting sleeps until then (it's 9 by the way!), so I can get my hands on those little beauties, and then I can play!!

While doing my research I was browsing all the blogs under "My Favourites", and when opening Amy's blog - Prairie Paper & Ink I was over the moon to discover that when doing a post she lists the Copic Markers that she uses, she also does some amazing tutorial videos which are so informative and inspiring. So needless to say, her challenge was the first one I decided to participate in.

She does a Friday Sketch, and I thought this would be a perfect way for me to get started with a Challenge. Here is her sketch:

And here is my take on that sketch:

My card is slightly different, I don't have any oval Nestabilities, so I used a rectangular box for my image instead, otherwise I tried to keep it as close to the sketch as possible! Please (if you haven't already), Amy's site is a must see site!!

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend. Can't believe it's nearly finished already!
