Come and join in ... it's the PaperWorksCo blog hop!!!

 'He loves me?'

Hello and welcome to the PaperWorksCo blog hop!  PWCO is thrilled to have a new artist on board and today is the debut of 'A Day in the Life of Abigail ...'

You should have arrived by way of the uber talented Alice.  So I have these two fabulous images to showcase today.  'He loves me?' is the first one.  Isn't she so sweet blowing away the dandelion fluff!  I have coloured with copics and will list the colours I used at the end of the post.  Paper is BG Euphoria and I created a flower trellis using the MS deep Trellis punch.  I punched out small flowers using the retro flower punch and greenery with an EK Success punch.  Plenty of bling adds the finishing touches and makes this image shine ... well, at least I think so, LOL!!!

'Abby Easter'

And the second card I have to show you today is this sweet 'Abby Easter' image.  How fun ... an easter egg hunt collecting eggs from the Easter Bunny himself!  Again, this image is coloured with copics.  I played around with the layout on this card and wanted to create the feeling that they were on top of a hill inside a rabbit field with the sun and a rainbow shining behind them ... do you think it worked?  I pulled out my MS punches to help me achieve this - both the picket fence punch and the bunny border.  The paper is Three Bugs in a Rug and the crochet flower and bling is from stash.

Here's a list of the copic colours I've used:-

'He Loves Me'

Skin - E000,00,11,13,21,R20
Hair - E25,29,35
Dress & Head scarf - RV32,34,69
Boots - B91,93,95,99
Dandelions & Grass - Y11,15  G40,82,85

'Abby Easter'

Skin - E000, 00,11,13,21, R20
Hair - E25,29,35
Dress - BG72,75,78
Head scarf & boots - R35,37,39
Basket & eggs - E30,31,33,50,53, YG05

So should you get lost on the blog hop here is the list of everyone.  Be sure to hop all the way through the list as Peggy will randomly select winners from comments left on everyones' blogs.  I hope you've enjoyed what I've made and that Abigail has squeezed her way into your heart ... she certainly did with me!
