A Preview of Some Exciting New Images and a sale on Copics!!

Hi Blogging Friends,

Tuesday again! Here I go frantically typing this blog post while Nicholas has one of his little "naps".  Oh how I wish they would lengthen out a little so I could get just a tiny bit more done!  But I cant complain, as I know of one baby from Pilates that doesnt sleep at all in the day...so I am very blessed Nicholas can have up to five naps a day...just means this post might be a bit frantically written as I have a lot to say!

Sammi has introduced a NEW Digi Designer at Mad for Markers who has designed some VERY CUTE images which are a delight to colour :) They are called "As the Crow Flies" Digis... 

The lady who has drawn the images is Ardith Trumpy and she lives in a small farm town west of Chicago, Illinois.  Having been a stay at home mom to three, now grown children, she always seemed to be doodling and sketching their antics.  Having spent years investigating various art media and enjoying many varieties of art, there is always one constant… she always seems to come back to drawing cute little people.
Here is the lovely artist....

These images will go on sale tomorrow at Mad for Markers.  There are more images to come too.  I had a play with just two of them and coloured them up with Copics and put them onto some pages in my Art Journal.  The first one is called Sara Waters.  The second image is called Holly's Flower Boots.

These pages were done in a bit of a rush...so I was happy with how they turned out.  Nothing like a time limit to get you crafting and colouring!!!  Most of my colouring is done in bed now as Nicholas can happily sleep or play while I can colour.  He is already becoming a fan of Copics! As you can see he likes to grab them and suck them.  Would you believe he has two teeth coming through now! Oh my! We have had some tough times as they really do make him upset.  He is normally such a happy little baby...

If you like Copics then you need to go and check out Sammi's SALE at Mad for Markers.  Also there is a colouring in day coming up in Sydney for those who love to learn new things and colour with friends.

You might remember me saying last week that we were going away for the weekend.  Here are a couple of pics.  We met up with my family while we were there.  My brother has just come back from a holiday in Europe.  He brought Nicholas back his very own official Barcelona Soccer Outfit.
Below you can see Nicholas is nearly sitting up on his own. 

Well, I have to leave it there as Nicholas has been up for awhile now and is sick of blogging!
I will be back on Saturday with my Mad for Marker's post.
Have a great week!!
