Fun With New Toys!

So the other day I let you guys in on a little secret- I feel like I have lost my mojo. I have at this moment in time 10 cards that I need to make (either requests or Mother's Day I need to send). I still have not done one card that I need to do...but last night I opened up my box that arrived from PTI and I actually did a little playing. Inside my magic box of tricks was cardstock in my favorite colors- pinks and purples...and their new release designer paper- Dotty Biscotti...yes you guessed it ...it is polkadot paper... plus this fabulous leaf ribbon that I decided to order on a whim. I decided to color up this new digi set I got from Tiddly Inks called Bloom Q. I played with my new Smooch Illuminate paint, and I finally opened my new Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch. I used my new Tim Hotlz Alterations Baroque die too! The flowers I picked for this card didn't really match the papers so I colored over them with my Copic RV10 and V91 markers.

The only thing I am not crazy about on this card is that the Smooch made my digi lines run a bit...that is the gray you may see on the flower. Live and Learn....now I know not to color over printed lines with Smooch.

You have until 8pm ET tonight to enter to win the blog candy. I will post the winner tomorrow!

Sometimes new toys can help that mojo!!! I just received my first copics yesterday in the mail and they were definitely what I needed to help that creative block.

Fabulous card!!! Loving how you colored the flowers to match!
