Sympathy Card

Second post for today!!
It's never fun to make Sympathy cards especially when it's for a friend. and that is who this card is for. I am still loving Orgins By Basic Grey and I thought that I would enter this into a couple of challenges to use stickers on your project hopefully chipboard stickers count. Well I have been hoarding these chipboard stickers seriously this is sad but I cannot bring myself to use these awesome stickers well no more I am going to start using them!!! The sentiment is a Scenic Route rubon that i have had in my stash for some time now.

Pixie Dust Studio and Softpencil Challenges

I have a couple cards to share today this first card is for Softpencil and the challenge this week for the Dt members to use your favorite color medium. For me hands down when it comes to digital images Copics are my choice. I am even happier because finally I have been able to get my printer to take good quality paper (I use Papertrey Ink)If you have any other great paper that is good for Copics I would love to hear about it. Please go here for info on this challenge. I used the sweet Japanese Girl I have to say I was a little scared to do the hair I am still learning on my own how to use these markers.

I also used The Pink Elephant Sketch challenge this week for this card.

This Second card is for the Pixie Dust Studio Challenge and this week it was to make a Birthday card. Wink was a perfect match for this challenge. I colored him in with Copics also and used some fun GCD Studios DP I also combined this with a Sketch Challenge. You can go here for more info on this Challenge.
I used the Sketch from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch

Also we are going to have another Pixie Dust Studio release for march 1st so make sure to come back for sneak peeks.

I will be back tomorrow for another FWF and a small giveaway!!!
