Spring Time Alice

Happy Thursday everyone!  Today I have a card to share with you using Alice Bean

 I colored Alice with Copics and then added her to a Spellbinders Lacey Oval that I had cut out of patterned paper.  I almost ended up coloring her in blues again, but when going through my papers I found some old My Minds Eye papers that I have been holding onto forever, {I know I'm not the only one that does this ;)} and thought they would look great with Alice so I used those instead.  I added some self adhesive pearls, a few roses and then a sentiment using October Afternoon letter stickers (although I did color the edge of them with copics to make them blend in better).

I really love using these Limited Edition Beans ~ they are too darn cute and so much fun to color!  Remember, they are only in the TGF store until the end of April, so if you have your eye on any (or all) of them, you should get them soon. 

Now I will admit that I had to color 4 images before I had a usable one.  I filled up a few of my copics and evidently filled one a bit too much because I went to use it and it dropped a big glop of ink on my image....there went #1.  I thought I took care of the problem, but when coloring #2 and #3 it happened much for those.  I think I finally got it fixed since I didn't have any problems with the 4th image, but gee, what a pain that was!

Well, tonight is my Elementary DI teams last practice before they head off to State.  Hopefully they will finish up everything they wanted to work on.  Saturday is the big day....if they place 1st, 2nd or 3rd, they are off to Global Finals.....I know they are really hoping to make it.    

My Middle School DI team didn't make it to State, so instead of practicing, they spent the last week working on a video to enter into the DI skills contest since the winner of the contest wins a trip to Global Finals.  They are really hoping that their video gets picked as one of the top 3 and goes on to public voting.  Crossing my fingers for them because I know how much this means to them.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!
