It's a Witchin' Labor Day!

Hi everyone! 

I had an amazing day yesterday coloring with inky friends Angela & Theresa. It was so relaxing as I only brought some images & my copics. No pressure to turn them into cards although this cutie found a home on one right away today. Angela found this great DP and it just matched wonderfully. It's gorgeous with it's flocking. Thanks, chica!
This is Rags and Witches another adorable Saturated Canary Digi!! I'm so glad I've been a good & true enabling friend for a lot of you! *giggle* Seriously, loved all the comments on my first SCD card! I love that sharing what I love to do encouraged you to run out & buy some as well. I hope you will share your cards on the Saturated Canary FB page! I love to see what others are doing doing with them!

I wanted to also share a close up as I used a clear spica glitter pen on her hair after I colored it with copics. I love the soft shimmery effect when doing that and since it has no color it just adds a nice shimmer to whatever color you used! I also used a red spica glitter pen on the heart on her cheek. I love coloring with spica pens once I'm done with an image for the smaller detail portions!

Oh, and just a FYI, I stopped by the Saturated Canary digi shop this morning and put in my order for THIS!!! OMG, I'm deliriously happy over this! And can't wait to see myself digitized by Krista Smith herself!!
I hope you are all enjoying your Monday and hope all of you in the US are enjoying a day off full of stamping, coloring and cookouts. :D
