Seems like I want to learn everything. Is there no end. I have taken up knitting and crocheting. I have learned to Tunesian crocheting and Portuguese knitting. I have learned the difference between Continential knitting and English knitting. I am trying it all. Now I have the urge to learn to draw. So I am going to post my attempt at doing faces. I am trying to capture different moods. Not doing so well. They kind of look all the same to me. I did get them to face in different directions. I even got a dude in there with curley hair. lol Its all fun.

Yep, I have been playing again. Can't seem to stop coloring these little Saturated Canary images. This one I colored with my Copic's. I love adding all these layers to my cards and it gives me a chance to use all these dies that have been setting around here forever. I used my punch to punch out the coffee filters again to make the flower. I colored the four layers of punched coffee filers with copic markers, added a brad to the center and scrunched it up. When you unfold it you have a beautiful little flower. Try it!! Its not too thick to mail. I like that alot. The image is cut with a Nestie circle die. The red cornors and the red scollop circle are Nesties as well. The doiley is a MFT die, and the leaves are cut with a Marianne Designs die. I can't remember who made the button die. I glued designer paper to some cardstock and cut the the buttons out. They needed to be a little more stable and the cardstock did that for me.

It has been forever sense I have been on my blog. Its not that I haven't been making cards or things because I have. I guess I have just been a bit lazy. I have taken my Intermediate Copic certification. What a great day that was. I can now proudly display my certification label. Or whatever it is called. I am learning to knit so I have been making hats and scarfs like you wouldn't believe. Everyone I know I think has a hat. lol I took a Portuguese knitting class on Sat. from Andrea Wong. She is an excellent teacher and her knitting is above compare. So today I thought I would make a couple cards using my Prismacolor pencils. It has been forever sense I have used them. It was such fun. The flowers on these cards are made using coffee filters and coloring them with Copics. The images are digital images from Saturated Canary
