Weekend Wrap-Up.

I have a post-vacation hangover. I'm too exhausted to clean, so we are still living out of our suitcases. We've been in Idaho visiting J's parents. I'm not sure what it is about that place, but it relaxes us all.  It is so peaceful in the country.

I met Miranda while I was there. We shared trade secrets with each other. She taught me the purl-stitch and I taught her to use Adobe Illustrator. She is just as I imagined her: totally darling!

Cardstock: Neenah, Papertrey Ink, American Crafts; Patterned Paper: American Crafts; Stamps: Papertrey Ink; Punch: Stampin' Up!, We R Memory Keepers; Markers: Copic

All I could get my hung-over brain to do today was craft, so I pulled out my magnificent, new markers. I never grew out of my love to color, and was totally thrilled when I discovered that coloring can be a grown up thing too! Copics are amazing. I am just beginning to use them, but I'm totally hooked on shading and blending.

My sister came over today and we colored and stamped. I think I sold her on copics as well. I overheard her telling her husband that she "needs them."

I made a couple mother's day cards. I copic-ed up that cute Dahlia from Papertrey Ink for my Dahlia-loving mother. Can't wait to send it on.

OH! And all you paper/stamping lovers should stay tuned! I have some giveaways very soon just for you!


  1. Love this, Hannah! You rocked those Copics! I have started my collection and now I may be an addict. :)

    Oh, stamping giveaways?! You know I'm there! You have the BEST giveaways in blog land!

  2. This is a great card! I haven't done the Copic thing yet. The darned things are just so expensive!

  3. And YOU, Hannah, are equally darling. Okay, I know nothing about these copics but I pretty much want to buy them blindly based on your ravings. I'm off to read all about them and start up a collection (of money, that is).

  4. Super cute!! I think I need to get some of those copics too...everything is so beautiful that I see done with them!

  5. Idaho. And yet you didn't stop by and teach me how to cook - whatever! Love the colors on this card...love seeing you make cards!

  6. oh Michelle...I've never been to Boise. Can you believe it? I'm dying to, though. Someday...


Thank you for reading! I love hearing what you have to say and appreciate your comments.
