a winner, Fresh Garden & my Copics

First of all. We have a winner!! My big thanks to Mr. Random.org for helping me picking the winner for my WAD candy winner! Here is his pick:

The winner is ....... ~AMY~!!!!!!! Congratulations, Amy! Doing the happy dance for you!! =) I already emailed you. I'll send the candy out to you as soon as I can!

On to today's card. Here is a hybrid card made using a new release from Boutique Cute Dolls that I made almost two weeks ago. I couldn't share it with you since the kit wasn't released until this past Tuesday(4/6).

This kit is called "Fresh Garden." I adore this fun and whimsical botanical patterned paper. It just says Spring all over it! And of course, I must use this lovely polka dot paper, too! =)

The flower and leaves also came with the kit. The sentiment is from this set by Hero Arts and the scallop is cut using thisdie from Papertrey Ink. All Boutique Cute Dolls digital kits are available at Digi Scrappers Brazil. She was a guest designer at The Digichick and that's where she found me and invited me to be on her hybrid design team. =)

A little while ago, a friend asked me if I could show my Copic collection and here it is:

Not very glorious, huh? =) Since I don't have a hug amount of space around my craft area (which is really about half of our dining table), this is what works for me now. I used the clear plastic boxes that PTI stamps came with and sorted my Copics by color (well, sort of) and just stick them into this square-ish mailing box. I think I have about 130 Copics. There were about 20 of them that weren't in the photo since I took them out and was ready to do some coloring. I think I'll need a bigger box the next time I order Copics... This is also a perfect excuse to order more PTI stamps!! =)

That's all for today. Hope you have a fantastic weekend! =)
