It was a Chatty Cathy kinda day!

Well, here I am...posting my very first cards on my blog. I admit, I'm kinda nervous about it, but oh well...her goes!

It was a Stamping Bella Chatty Cathy kinda day! She is so stinkin' cute and relatively quick to colour up! When I say quick, that means I can do it in under half an hour! I don't mass produce (unless it's Christmas) so I don't have the pressure to work under a clock. I just do it because I love it!

These were all coloured with my copics...my BELOVED copics! One thing about the copics is that i find it very difficult to pick my paper first and try to match my copics to it. It never seems to work for me. So I just stamp a few images, colour them up in what appeals to me or suits the image and then find a paper to match later. That works for me because I have a TON of paper...and if i really like the colours that I ended up with and don't have a paper to match...well then I can always create my own background with one of my background stamps!

Here is the first card from my Chatty Cathy day...stay tuned for more!

Your colouring is fabulous as usual. Looking forward to more. Just wondered though I don't see where I subscribe to your blog. Can you help me out because I don't want to miss a post.
