Here is a closeup of the beautiful image colored with copics.

A lot of people ask me what kind if Stamping CS I use and here is what I use to color all my stamped images with copics, this paper is not good for pencils as when coloring with pencils you need a rougher not smooth at all CS. Smooth paper won't hold the lead of the pencils and will not allow you to blend and build up colors.  For any of you who use pencils knows what I am taking abou.

Well I am off to start dinner in the oven as it will take some time to cook and be done by the time my husband gets home from work.
I go back to work on Monday and I am ready to go back, I thought I would never say that, but I can't get nothing done her at home as I am in just a lazy mode. I thought I would get a done of cards made but not that hasn't happened all I want to do is sit and color and that's about all I have done.

Jazmine started her Meds. today.  Wish her luck that they help her to be able to learn and get caught up. I am so worried about her, but I did email her teacher and if anything goes wrong she will contact me.  So far no call jus am email to let me know she got my email to her.

I hope each of you have a wonderful weekend.

What a beautiful image... so versatile and stylish; and of course you have presented it beautifully. Hope all goes well with Jazmine (for your ease of mind as much as for her!- you are clearly such a caring Mum and I can feel how your heart aches for her) Enjoy your return to work on Monday... it's sort of comforting to get back to our routines after times of high stress, even if it does cut into craft time ;-) Donna ☺
