Lost In Thought

Remember yesterday when I told you I had something else to post? Well, here I am to share a couple of items.

First, I won a some blog candy from Pat's Technique Trail blog and recieve a wonderful package of paper from Pat at Paper Temptress. Yes, some of that yummy paper you're seeing everyone play with lately! A few of those sheets were Comic Coloring Paper. Well, I took one of those sheets and stamped a new image that arrived in the mail. Of course I used my Copic markers to color my image in and wow, what fun! The paper is thin but not vellum thin and the markers just soaked right in. I loved how the paper felt with my Copic markers! Thank you Pat for this wonderful paper!!

Now this leads me to my next share, the stamp I received from Susana at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD). Now I make no secret of loving butterflies and fairies. Well, I saw on someone's (two someones actually) blog this lovely fairy and broke down and ordered her.

(Side note: I've mentioned before my heartburn over paying for Priority Mail prices to ship unmounted rubber. Well, I checked out Susana's website, didn't see shipping prices so I added this fairy to my cart and checked out to find out about shipping. Dang it, $4.95 for shipping. I close my window and move on. A while later I recieve message from Susana herself and she told me she can ship priority just ask for it in the comments section. Don't you know I had this order finished within minutes! She also had refunded the difference in shipping to my PayPal account within minutes.)

Susana had my order shipped by that same evening and I received my fairy within two days! That is some great customer service! Thanks so much Susana! Without further ado, here's my fairy:
The reason I may not make her into a card is that my green copic marker started leaking on me while coloring the grassy area and ran into other parts of the image. I was able to fix most of it (except that far right 'shroom) plus I'm not real happy with my grass. I need to go back to Marianne's blog to see what she says about grass. :)
