Crafts & Me Birthday Card!

I began seeing these GORGEOUS Crafts & Me stamps being fabulously colored by my Make it Colourful teamie Tracy and I  knew I just HAD to get some!!! One fo my most favorite things to color with my copics is hair and these images have the ultimate in hair to color! While I waited for an order I placed I noticed they had digi's - whoohoo - gotta love instant gratification, right?! Esp for me when I have no patience for the post. LOL My mom loves penguins so I immediately grabbed this stamp called Tagalong and made this for her birthday last Sunday. Her favorite color is green so I paired it with my all time fav October Afternoon papers with some touches of grey because it is the new black you know...hehee 

Here is a close up of the coloring - I added some clear aytou glitter to the top and her eyes but it really doesn't capture in the photos b/c it is so subtle which is what I LOVE about the atyou glitter pens! I have run out of my clear b/c it's my go to color and just ordered another and realy can't wait for it to arrive! While obsessing, erhm, being inspired by Tracy's blog I saw that Crafts & Me is having a DT call!!! Oooh, I knew I wanted to try out so I'm submitting my blog into the pool of entries and keeping my fingers crossed. I truly love these images and it would be such an honor to design for them - it also sounds like a great group of ladies to work with!

Lol Carisa, so I'm getting the blame from Zoe and you for the Simply Sassy stamps and now I'm getting the blame for the Crafts and Me stamps, lmao. Good luck for the DT, Teresa is a lovely lady which I think is borne by the fact that all the DT are still with her since the beginning. That says a lot. We are all friends.

Back to the card, you have coloured her brilliantly, totally gorgeous!

Hugs Tracy x
