Fri Sketcher & Copic Challenge: 'I still believe'

Hellooo! Sorry for the long weekend absence but work/last of the twilight books kept me busy! I've finished the books now (looking forward to the next film in november now, although the 2nd book was probably the one I didn't enjoy as much out of all 4) so can try and get back into my cards and visit some blogs soon (long overdue I know - sorry!)

Talking of books, this cutie I've used has got her head stuck in one too, heehee wonder if it's twilight? I've coloured her in using the colours over on Copic colour Challenge and have made the card using this week's fab FS sketch.


  • Images: all the images and the sentiments are from the 'Never Ever' Greeting Farm stamp set. (For those who like to buy from UK, I know Silly Monkeys have this set plus lots more due in very soon). Stamped main image twice and have decoupaged her.
  • Colouring: Stamped with Memento Tux black ink and coloured with Copics plus some sakura clear glaze and stardust pens on her glasses, book, wings etc
  • papers: Buzzcraft A4 design papers from Silly Monkeys
  • Others: EK success edger punch, swirl punch and retro flower punchs for the flowers, MS twig punch, Kanban pearls for centre of flowers, thread and bells I found in my stash (wish you could hear the card as it jingles!)


Wow, don't know what's with the weather but got woken up 4am this morning when we had THE noisiest freak hailstone downpour that lasted what seemed like forever LOL. Not a trace of it now obviously but it is a miserable dreary day - if you've got the sun can we have it back please!

Off to try and catch up with my DT cards and then some blog catching up and also mount some High Hopes stamps that I've been waiting forever for and they finally arrived today (we're talking nearly 2 months! but to be fair they have sent me lots of free ones plus lots of the new releases too so I'm some what placated)

Have a good day.

Gorgeous card, she does remind me of someone, with her nose stuck in a book rather than crafting.
