Teapot Challenge #11



Yesterday was my birthday! I had such a nice day... It was very rainy but we went out for dinner and have just been relaxing... Guess what?!!! I received a mind blowing, awesome gift from DH! He bought me the {beloved} Copic Markers!!! OMG! OMG! OMG! This is how it went down... Two days ago he told me that he wanted to surprise me for my birthday and buy me the Copics thatI talk about constantly (I can't even believe that he didn't tune it out as me just babbling about my craft), but he said he got confused as to which ones to buy . He asked me if I would mind ordering them myself! Well, I was on the computer in like ten seconds! I am so thrilled to have these...They arrived yesterday and I have been coloring since they arrived! I need lots of practice I know, but this is the first card I did with them. It's what I made for Cindy's Teapot Tuesday Challenge. You can get the details by clicking here. Hope everyone is having a nice, relaxing weekend.

Stamps: SU Fall Whimsy (I drew the tall grass)
CS: Cream, Craft, Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green
