Mytime's Saturday Sketch...and my first attempt with my Copics

So...my friend Lauren (mytime on SCS) posts a Sketch every Saturday for everyone to try...here's this week's sketch:















Well, I took some creative liberty....alright...a LOT of creative liberty, but only because I got to use my Copics for the first time, and I was pretty pleased with my coloring job, and wanted to use it... so I made it 'fit' the sketch!

I had gotten my new 'Totally Witchin'' stamps from My Favorite Things the same day.

No, I'm not ready for Halloween, but it's fun...and psst...this is actually a birthday card for a friend of mine...the original sentiment from MFT says "Hope your Halloween is..." I changed it to Day, by using a sentiment from the 'Essential Sentiments' set.

oh, right...onto the card...




Whaddya think? not SO bad, eh?? I still have LOTS to practice, but I thought it came out kinda cute...



Thanks for stopping by!!!
