This is so adorable! I love the way it shimmers.


Kristy, this is just beautiful!! I'm not laughing I'm not goin gto show you my first creations!! A matter of fact I think I sold all of them of just gave them away!!! The bad thing is, is that I was so pround of them then!! But that was them and this is now!! My first attempts at using copics!! I never used more that one color to color a certain part of my image so if I colored a shirt it was the same color all over no darker and lighter colors!! But I do think it's pretty cool to see where everyone started and where they are now with their designs a techniques!!
Boy have we learned alot!!! I hope all is getting better your way!! I;m sitll waiting to see more of your Sweet Pea creations!!
Take care!!

Maria Therese
