Cast your votes!

Be sure to stop over to The Greeting Farm Battle to cast your votes. Our team is the Crazy Copic Chicks. This challenge had me written all over it. I love all things retro one of my favourite color combos is red and aqua. I had so much making this card. Please give us a vote! It's "Idol style" so the lowest votes get the boot. Please vote so we can stay in the contest and play again next week!

As for a little mischief... I went out with my girls last night... some of them had been drinking since 3 o'clock in the afternoon. It took a couple shots to catch up and bring out "Red" but a great time was had. Pleasantly surprized to arrive at the bar (last minute change in venue) to find my favorite local band playing. No Jag this time, although, Quervo and I were friends. Ran into some of my "co workers", danced, laughed and made some new friends. I really needed a night out so I'm glad I was convinced to join the way... this is a pic of my 2, usually modest, friends. This is what they look like after 7 hours of drinking. Everyone is home safe and with minimal hangovers. All mischief was completely innocent. :)

I {heart} Copics Challenge #7

Another great sketch for the I {heart} Copics Challenge #7. Had fun playing with my Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety and my Greeting Farm Wild Sprout.

Things have been pretty mellow for me being that I have laryngitis. I've missed most of my shifts this week at work. My job is talking and typing, if I can't do either of those then I can't go in. I'm worthless. At least it feels that way when I can't talk. The whole thing makes me anxious. I'll be fine. I'm working today then off for the next 4 days. Excited to have a turkey dinner in the slow cooker so that I can go home, craft for a bit then go wild with my girls. I'm off for 4 days after today.

There are some nasty bugs going around. Stay healthy and well rested everyone!

I {heart} Copics Friday Fun Challange

This week's sponsor of our challenge is Pixel Geek Designs. I used the Medium Gable Box template to create this spring inspired box for Candies. The window is made with my Nestabilities and a sheet of acetate. I use a scrap of acetate to suspence Princess Anya so that she looks like she's floating inside. The papers used are My Mind's Eye Ooh La La from I {heart} Papers . I used Copics to color Anya, the flower at the top and the button. I didn't think I would like the templates but I was wrong. Easy to print out, cut, decorate and assemble. I love them and I will go back for more.

Weekend in Dallas, Texas.

Shane (bf) and I had enough of the gloomy, muddy and melty Minnesota weather, Not to mention that one of my best friends came up to celebrate my bday... We picked up and went to Texas for 2 days. It was a brief but wonderful trip. Stefanie planned some great things to cram into the 2 days. Day 1 included the 6th Floor Museum then the Bodies exibit. Both fascinating. We did some sight seeing then had a great dinner. Day 2 was the Dallas St Patty's Day Parade. We got a ton of beads... and get your mind out of the gutter... we didn't earn them that way! :) It was innocent I swear. Not saying a few guys didn't try to get a show but we behaved. Here's just a few pics to share in the Spirit of St Patty's Day...

Playing Catch Up

I have a rotating schedule at work. This means every other month I get a few weekends of. My weekends get crazy! It's the only time I really get to hang out with my friends and sometime we get out of hand. I must always account for recovery time. It's this reason the makes my week or 2 prior to my weekends off super busy. I'm trying to tie up loose ends to I can have fun. This time around was no exception. Add to it becoming a Design Team Member for I {heart} Copics and a brief trip to Texas... wow. Moving on...

Here are my first 2 Design team assignments. The first features a digi from Michelle Perkett

The next featured the Brand new, just released and perfect for Spring Chicken Girl Designs.
