Dream Big!

It's Friday! The day you've all been dreaming of. If Monday is the frog you have to kiss, then Friday is the prince! :D

This week I am playing catchup from my travels, so not much stamping time. But I did get Copic Certified while I was in Chicago by none other than Lori Craig and Debbie Olson! AMAZING CLASS! If you get the opportunity to take one, you need to - I learned so much and the class materials are great. I have tons more to learn, but I was inspired, so I was determined to play with my markers and with my beautiful little girls from the Greeting Farm. I 100% blame Beate for getting me completely addicted to these little sweeties. I fell especially hard for little Ava, who Jessica was kind enough to enable me for...

I colored this little beauty with Copics, and then I sprayed Citrus Tickle Smooch Spritz and also Silver Foil Smooch onto a paper plate, and painted the silver on her hair, and the citrus onto her little froggy prince. See the sparkles in the closeup?

I used glue & Martha Stewart glitter on her crown, collar and shoes, and finished her backdrop with Basic Grey paper tape, K & Company patterned paper (all those clocks ticking away the waiting for her prince to come) and Early Espresso cardstock. I cut the oval with my Oval Scalloped frame Sizzix die.

Happy Friday! What are you working on?

Have you signed up for the UBlue Cyber Club? Attended one of my Webinars?? Come on - get your geek on! :) Want to see my other blog?


  1. This is simply adorable. Love the glitter touches!

  2. Tee-hee, I need to learn to read the complete sentence: I read "I spritzed onto a paper plate" and then spent forever trying to figure out where you put the paper plate on your card. Thanks for the fun tip on using the spritz that way, what a cool trick to add some glitz in specific spots. Your card looks fantastic!

  3. Oh for goodness sakes... if she isn't the cutiest! LOVE her sparkles! Hugs!

  4. Adorable! Congratulations on your Copic certification!!!

  5. How adorable! Love her sparkles and her blue royalty coloured theme. Congratulations on your certification!

  6. Love your coloring job! I have a fair number of copics but I need more practice. What am I working on? I just finished my swaps for the August Technique Junkies swap and man, are they blue and sparkly. We must have been on the same wavelength! - Theresa the evil twin.

  7. I love this card! How pretty and anyone would love to receive it. It reminds me of my new favorite movie the Princess and the Frog. Such a classic.

    I am so glad that I found my frog along time ago he is adorable!!!!

  8. She is delightfully adorable.
    Like the card, and I must learn to use my Copics. TFS

  9. Lydia!!!!! This is absolutely DARLING, omgosh! I am so excited for you-had so much going on before the show I had no idea you were going for the Copic class-how fun! Congrats on that and thanks so much for sharing Ava with us! You did a beautiful job and my own Ava is right here asking me why I didn't give her sparkles LOL! LOVE IT!
