Boy Oh Boy!

One stamping thing I did do on my vacation was to practice coloring with my Copics - I brought a bunch of stamped Magnolia images, such as the Edwin above, with me to the cottage. So I had this cute little guy all ready for this Split Coast Sketch Challenge card today!

I'm also taking a Copics class at the Papertree in Manchester, NH this Friday - so hopefully I'll learn some good techniques!

I used the Argyle Cuttlebug folder on all the panels. The Edwin is cut out and popped up on foam dimensionals. The sentiment is from a set I've had forever called Classic Baby by Scraptrends. Inside I stamped a happy birthday sentiment.

The papers are all Papertrey ink.

Here's a hot tip!!! Claire Brennan is releasing 4 new stamp sets this Sunday, 8/9, check out her fun sneek peeks and a chance to win one of the new sets over at Waltzingmouse!! She's showing some really wonderful Halloween and Christmas Stamps!
