Well, good morning everyone!!  How goes your week THUS far?  I know, I know.....it is ONLY Tuesday!!  BUT........it is a NEW day!!  Woohoo, positive thinking!!
OK, so I have another FIRST for you all today!!  Today is a NEW challenge over at the PAPER AND SUCH BLOG, which means my FIRST challenge creation for them!!  This week's challenge is quite appropriate for the month we are in!  It is to.........................


Easy, right?  You betcha!!  Although for a pink person like me?  It proved to be DEF interesting!!  Haha!  I decided to give my CAS skills a shot again!!  As you all know, I am working on that!  SO, here is my challenge creation!

I used the NEWLY released HEART STRINGS set, along with my Copics!  I have seen many projects that utilize a simple border like mine and have been DYING to try my hand at it!!  I used my Spellbinder Squares and my Black Copic Multiliner!  I stamped the CA-ute little house first than lined up my die and traced the line from there!  I then took my Copic colors and laid them down on my acrylic block.  I used my "0" Copic as a paint brush and picked up the colors off the block to paint onto my image!  LOVE how it turned out!  This is a challenge you NEED to play along with!  I mean, seriously?  Who does not LOVE creating and having a chance at a PRIZE!!  You can find ALL the details over on the PAPER AND SUCH BLOG!!   Not to mention some AWESOME design team inspiration!!  To play along, all you have to do is CLICK ON THE CHALLENGE BUTTON, on the right hand side of the blog!! Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you will join us!  Until tomorrow!  Have a WONDERFUL day!!  Remember....................life is TOO short!!  ENJOY LIFE!
