I'm Copic Certified.......And James Bear In The Snow!!!

Smiley from

I just love this adorable image from Lili of the Valley stamps!  And how can I resist a James Bear??!!!  My hubby's name is James and he's just as cute....sometimes cuter! LOL

So this card is for two challenges that are new to me....I'm having fun checking out some new challenges lately!!  The first one is the Just Cute Bears & Friends Winter Birthday.  I will definitely be playing along with more of these challenges since I sure do love cute bears and critters!!!  LOL

The second challenge is Cards For Men Christmas Cards.  Making masculine cards is always a challenge for me....but cute bears make it easier!  So does a winter theme where I can get away with using bling!  LOL

I also made this for the Splitcoast Technique Lover's Challenge to combine some challenges in celebrations of the 300th Technique Challenge!!

I used Gina K. Pure Luxury Cardstock in White, Chocolate and Lipstick Red.  That Lipstick Red is one of my FAVE colors!!!  I used the Amber Autumn DCWV stack dp.  And then colored with my Copics!!

And yes!!!  I'm Copic Certified!!!!  I just got to take the Copic Certification Class and WOW!!!!  I love my Copics more than ever!!!  The amazingly talented Marianne Walker taught my class and I learned sooo much!!!  I'm sure hoping for an Intermediate class next year!!!

A little more new son is helping me build my own little's actually his homeschool assignment!!  LOL  Isn't that the way to do it??!!  ;)  I'm hoping to start selling my cards and other craft projects.  How cool to be able to stamp and keep my own supply of bling high without using the family budget!!!  Hahahaha!!!  Just stay tuned....but it will be a work in progress!!  In the meantime....have a fun and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
