Victoria is turning 6!

In November 2010 I started this blog to post cards that I was creating for card swaps on Splitcoast. I took breaks here and there but during the fall of last year my bestie Sara started her own blog too. We have constantly passed ideas and questions back and forth. Over the last little bit we have been challenging each other to play with as many challenges as we can. Today I'm posting a very special card (that has 6 challenges on it) for my little princess who is turning 6 on June 8th. Party plans are well on their way, we are hosting her friend party at our local Michael's store. She is pretty excited.
Also in March Sara discovered an amazing copic teacher on Facebook, Alyce Keegan with Kit and Clowder. Alyce does create and learn class every month and this month we learning how to color mermaids and the ocean. This is my practise image for a scene that I will create and frame for her bathroom. I'm in love with my copics again. We are learning so much from Alyce.

here's my card.
