 Happy first day of June!   And, what a busy one it is!!

It’s our 5th Copic Creations Challenge, featuring Clear/Transparent things.  This was a definite CHALLENGE for me!  I really had to study Marianne Walker’s tutorials and did LOTS of samples before this one!   All the details can be found on the CCC blog, along with the AMAZING creations by the very talented DT!

The best part about this challenge, is that Gina K. Designs  is our awesome sponsor!!   She provided the above stamp set, called Friendship Blooms, and an assortment pack of her pure luxury cardstock!    AND, this same stamp set, (a new one… not a used one!!!)  along with the paper pack is the prize for one randomly selected participant!     You better get over there quick to check it out!!   🙂

Hope you’re having a great day.   My other challenge today is the HM Monday Challenge – the post can be found after this.   Thank you for stopping in today.

  9. Mary, what a beautiful card! I love how the bow matches the embossed paper and you colored the pitcher and flowers beautifully!

  10. Love both of your cards, Mary. I love the pinks you used to color your flowers for the Copic challenge and then the papers you used with it. Very pretty! Hugs,

  11. Gorgeous coloring and colors used!! I love this stamp. TFS!!

  12. Beautiful!!! It fits so perfectly in that nestie, and these colors are sooo sweet! You rocked the coloring!

  13. Last comment before I get ready for work 😦 and it had to be on this card… sigh, it is beautifully romantic (eeek did I just use the word romantic! I must be the most unromatic person EVER LOL). The nesties look like they were made for that stamp. I really like the paper. Basic Grey are one of those companies where I look at the paper and go YUK, THEN I see it on someones card and THEN I have to have it and again this paper looks fabulous. And as usual you accerssorize perfectly with the Swiss dots, pearls and spotty ribbon.
    Take care & keep smiling

  14. This is absolutely beautiful. I am new at all of this but am determined to try to succeed. I am buying the Copic markers but can’t find YG O. Also I am new at reading the web and can’t find the directions to reproducing the picture. Can anyone offer any suggestions? Again this picture is exquisite.
