Bellas & Copics

Hello stampers!

Happy Easter!  I am thrilled to have a long weekend - to catch up on my time with my boys and my friends, to sleep in, and to craft!  Oh - and a little chocolate in there too, tee hee!  And - possibly - some late night insomniac online shopping!!

I've really been in a Bella mood lately!  I'm also spending lots of quality time with my beloved Copics.  I'm super psyched to be going to the Copic Basic & Intermediate certification courses in Toronto next month - so I've been trying to practice when I can.

To get back into my stamping groove, I coloured these two lovelies for the pure joy of it.  I didn't write down a THING - wow - talk about unusual!  I just went with my mood - and brought in some  yellows, peaches, and light greys, warm and cool.  That's just what I thought these pretty images called for.  I'm really into the more muted tones lately with just a little pop of colour.  Copics have such a fab range of browns, greys, and greige options.  I'm even opening up to their yellows lately.  I'm still not quite there with the orange and peach tones, but I am happier than I was - I think bringing in the little pop of Prisma really helps perk them up.

I happened to pick up this gorgeous 6x6 pack last week - all my latest happy colours in it - and of course the latest hot commodity - chevrons!  This is Plumeria by Basic Grey, who I'd kind of written off lately, especially as I'd been so distracted with all the scrummy MME from CHA!

Lots to look forward to - with my Copic certification courses coming up - and got my registration to CHA this week as well!!  It's going to be the Spring and Summer of Crafting - hurray!

Happy Sunday!
