Some fun projects

As promised, I will share some projects I have made with my new stuff from CHA. Like I said yesterday, a great deal of my time was spent in the Taylored Expressions booth. If you ever have the chance to meet these ladies, DO IT! They are the sweetest group of folks I have ever met. Since I was completely Copic-challenged. To be honest, I was afraid of them because I *hate* to color. Well, Nancy, Melissa, and Linda changed all that by showing me just how easy it was to get something that looked halfway decent! Yup, now I'm hooked!
My first project was a thank you for the wonderful (and completely talented) Nancy McKinney. This was my FIRST solo Copic attempt... I did ok, I think.

As I mentioned, I was "playing Army" last week. One nice lady brought in a TON of cupcakes and other sweet treats for my unit, all handmade. Of course I had to make her a thank you card with what else - SUPER CUPPIE! Here is my 2nd solo Copic attempt... little better, even though I was working with a VERY short clock! I did my "grounding" shadow backwards, but oh well, it's good enough for government work. :)
