Copic Markers - I took the plunge

Ok, so I took the plung..... I bought some Copic Ciao Markers. Here's a couple of my first creations with my new markers. It takes a bit getting used to but I think I'm getter better at layering the different colors. Stay tuned for more creations with my new markers!

2Sketches4You - Laura's Sketch 12

Here's this weeks sketch from 2Sketches4You.
I decided to use the punch that I HAD to have. (wink) I've used some of my favorite DCWV paper, one of my new vellum flowers (folded in half under the U), and two buttons to make some super cute cherries. Thanks for looking!!
And just in case you were wondering, I intentionally took this picture on my stove. ;)

Ok so I have lots to share. Let's start with Halloween. My husband collects comic books and so we decided since he was carving his pumpkin with the Batman symbol the rest of us would follow suit.

Right to left: Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Batman, Flash.

Now on to the costumes. We had Tinkerbell & a Rock Star! Oh what fun it was!

Now for some Thanksgiving crafts! In the Nov/Dec issue of Scrapbooks etc I found the cutetest idea - a turkey made of foam balls, buttons, paint, ribbon, googly eyes, flowers & feathers. Reanne and I made one to send to my mom. Can you guess how many buttons are on this guy? Around 150!!

Since I want to make about 4 of these turkey's (hehe pun intended) I knew that I didn't have nearly enough buttons to do the heads and the bodies. So I decided to make a girl.

I think she turned out soooooo cute! Now, last but not least this furry guy was crawling around in the driveway. I couldn't help but get up close and personal with him. I can only imagine what a beautiful butterfly he'll be.
