Happy New Year!

The holiday season has flown by so fast, I can't believe the kids go back to school tomorrow!

Our challenge this week is 'Something New', which suits me perfectly since I was eager to play with my Christmas present from my hubby:  80 new copics!  Smart me, I keep a running list on the back of my colour chart of which ones I want to buy next!  :)  Our sponsor this week is Michelle's Scrapbooking & More!  For my card today I've used Bon Voyage Tilda, who I hadn't had a chance to play with before.  I've paired her up with some 'new to me' papers from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop line.


At the last moment I decided to do a touch up to her pant colour, what a mistake!  I should have left it alone... Live and learn!


Copic colours
Skin- E000, 00, 02, chalk blush
Hair- E30, 31, 34, 35, 37
Shirt and Socks- E50, Y21, 26, 28
Overalls- BG10, 72, 75, 78

I hope you will come play along with us this week!  Thanks for stopping by!

Don't forget, there are only a few more days to enter my blog candy!  Right now there are only 36 entries, so your odds are great!
