Wow, I've been so busy with the holidays and getting ready for CHA that I hadn't had much time to play with this cute new set called Love Bug. I grew up with my Dad calling me and my sister love bugs... so this set just makes me smile.
My friend Joni moved here from Seattle... but she is from Alabama. She has the cutest accent. I met her two years ago when our kids were taking swim lessons together... her and her family were stationed here. Her husband is in the Coast Guard. I've had some really great friends move here because their spouses were in the Coast Guard, but the sad part is that they eventually leave. Anyway, one day Joni showed me this cool mural she was off to paint on the wall in the nursery at her church. I was blown away! I cannot draw a stick person... and I told her that. Not only did she draw the whole scene, but now she was going to PAINT it on the wall? I was impressed... to say the least. So, when we were starting up OCL, I remembered that cool mural and asked Joni if she'd like to draw a couple sets for us. Joni is a Mom of four... soon to be five. She is one of those Super Mom's who does it all and always makes everyone around her smile. I am blessed to have her in my life... and hopefully she will continue to draw more sets for us, so wherever she moves, she'll HAVE to keep in touch with me! Little did she know that I have a master plan.... LOL.
I used only markers from our new Copic sets. I did use from both the Brights and the Pastel sets... oh, and I think one green from the Earthy set too. Shoot... I have them all mixed up now. I will get them back in their correct groups. Sorry.... I'm totally unorganized these days.
I added some shazam with the atyou Spica pens, then added glaze over the top with the clear and pink Sakura Glaze Pens. Man, have I told you how much I LOVE those Sakura Glaze pens... I just cannot stop myself from adding them to my images now. I need more... my clear is almost out. Oh, and I found a cool new product too. Well, new to me, but these awesome foam dots! You know my idol Jody Morrow? She sells these amazing foam sticky dot products. They are like SU!'s dimensionals but bigger. LOVE them! I will show you tomorrow. I have more stuff to show you! I had some time to stamp and oh boy does it feel GOOD! :)

So, three of my kids went off with my parents in their bus on a hunt to find snow. I got a phone call last night, and they are having a BLAST. I have one more day of the house being quiet so I'm getting back to work. :) I'll see you tomorrow.. thanks for stopping by!
