Just Magnolias and Hanglars - A Sketch and a new product I am in LOVE with!

Happy Friday!!! I finally am feeling like I am back to my normal routine, somewhat. Lots of work going on here with all the new Stampavie Stamps arriving and going out - but life around me is back to normal. I am also getting back to some coloring and card making! That alone makes my life feel great!

Today is Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challenge, and today is a FABULOUS sketch. I really enjoyed working with this one and can see me using it again.. and again.
I had a lot of fun with the sketch and wanted to use some bright papers to help me warm up from all the cold around me! brrr.... Looking through some of my 6x6 paper pads I found the Pink Paislee 365 degrees, and realized I didn't know when I had gotten it or how long ago... just too sad, so I knew I had to use it for this one as it has lots of layers and the fun colors work so well together. Following the sketch I chose the papers and sewed the different layers - Then I had some fun with my "new product".... OH MY... I am totally in love with these!!!

Now the US gals here are gonna have to understand, these are really new for us here, and you are gonna have to do some searching for them at first... BUT I KNOW they are gonna hit the market with a loud BAM and really be VERY popular!
Ok, now at CHA the wonderful people at Letraset have blessed me with some of these markers after the show, maybe it was because I was drooling and whining on them? :0) And let me tell you about these markers... They are so fun to work with, and SUPER easy to use! My Copics have some serious competition.. Also because I got to play with Heidi's ProMarkers at the show... and you know I really like that fine tip... good thing those will mix with my current Copics.. cuz I know I will have to have those too in the future!

I love the look of watercoloring - just never been too great at it - but with these markers, just a bit of light coloring and then a water pen, and ta-da! And they come in so many pretty colors!

You can see I have been coloring up like crazy! You will see these on future cards :0) Right now I am just having way to much fun coloring! LOL

Now pop on over to the Just Magnolia & Hanglar Challenge and see all the wonderful cards with this weeks sketch!  I just love how different one sketch can look!!

HUGS see you tomorrow for Animal Crackers!

I had over 100 of these markers, but since the store where I teach would not allow me to use them since they sell Copics, I gave them to a friend.
