Now on to my project for today ... and of course I have a story behind this.


I have simply colored a LSHD digi stamp of the Angel Bear with Scissors with copic markers.


I have used the following copic colors:
Bear : E31, E57, E59
Dress: G82, G40
Cloud: B45, B91
Halo: Sakura Gelly Roll Pen, Golden Star
Scissors: 100, and American Crafts Metallic Marker in Silver
Highlights: Signo white pen


This is my first experience with Copics.  I've been dying to use them and I love how this turned out.


My crafting time has been limited the past three weeks but I have been dedicated to being a part of this blog hop.   
First, the good news.  The reason that I have been traveling is to await, greet, hug and kiss a new addition to our family ... his name is Samuel Michael and he is my sister's second son.  Upon hearing his due date it was evident to me that I HAD to be here for his birth!  So ... I decided to pack up my boys (Ages 1 and 4) and get on a plane and travel to Michigan (from Washington).  I had so many plans .... boy ... did I have so many plans.   First and foremost was spending time with my family.  Second was maybe getting a moment to myself (can I say Grandma's everywhere??), and third was accomplishing many tasks such as a few paper piecing projects, a minor blog redesign, set up of an etsy shop .... oh, and my list goes on and on.   Now .... what did I REALLY get accomplished?  Visits with family of course, a little bit of shopping .... little bit of sleep, lots of dealing with children who were struggling without their beds, their routines, their friends, their FATHER!  Oh, the drama that has gone on these past three weeks.  And it's not over yet.


One day, while driving around my one year old in the car (in the freezing cold snowy weather) I decided that I just had to get something done for the hop or I would just simply go crazy.   As I read blog feeds (in the car), flipped through magazines (in the car) and played on facebook (in the car) I decided that I would go with coloring a digi stamp of the LSHD angel bear with scissors .... of course, in the car.


SO, this is truly my first ever project that I have decided on, and completed on  ... in a car.
I can only hope that it is my last.


To complete the project I will most likely use my spellbinders dies to cut out the bear and place on a cute card.  Perhaps you will see that later in the week here .... stay tuned!




By the way, I actually colored 5 digi stamps to get to this one.  Practice makes perfect, right?




I'm also guessing that if you are here ... you might be wondering if I had any blog candy to offer??  Well the answer is OF COURSE!  To enter into the drawing to win, please become a follower of my blog.  You may also like to check me out on facebook too (although becoming a fan is not a requirement to win).




My blog candy is a few of my can't live without items:

(1) $10.00 gift certificate to Little Scraps of Heaven Designs
(2) Fiskars Scissors
(3) Fiskars Retractable Fingertip Detail Knife

Now, hopefully you've completed all the requirements to win the great prizes, and head on over to  Shannon's blog for more.

Be sure to check back daily for new projects and possible blog candy! : ) Thanks for hopping along with the first Little Scraps of Heaven Designs Blog Hop.  Enjoy and please come again!
