Monday, 11 January 2010 without hearts!

My lovely blogging friend, Vicki (Stamped Smiles) from the USA, started up her own challenge blog late last year called Saturday Spotlight! Finally, I've had a chance to join in and play! This week's challenge is to make a LOVE creation withOUT hearts!

I had some new toys to play with this week.......I found some Copic Sketch Markers on Ebay for a great price, so bought 15 of them! NOW, I know why everyone raves about these markers.....the colour just glides on, they are so nice to use! The bad thing is that now I need lots more colours....and I need to get a blender pen to get the shading right! Don't be too critical of my efforts with my 1st colouring job, I'm not too keen on the mouse's colour, a blender pen would've made it look a little better!

The stamp is by House Mouse, of course! The DP is by Heidi Grace and I used a metal word from a $2 discount store.

It's even hotter here today than it was a few days ago! The current temp is around 42 degrees centigrade (that's well over 100F!). I've really surprised myself this week though, I'm feeling pretty good so far! It's good to be able to get a few creations made over the last few days!

Thanks everyone for continuing to stop by, and it's makes me feel so good reading all your encouraging comments! {{Hugs}} to you all!

That's such a cute image and an amazing job with the Copics! I'd never have known you were a "beginner" if you hadn't mentioned it!

Those markers are amazing...and addictive.
