I'm in love with Hanna
I've been seeing Hanna cards everywhere, or at least everywhere I looked (haha) so I finally ordered my first one, plus a couple of Rileys, but I haven't gotten to those yet...
Anyway, I paper pieced her dress which really reminded me a little of all those paper dolls I use to like playing with. Then I colored the rest of her with my new copics which I ordered from Eclectic Paperie - they are an awesome shopping stop! I absolutely love my copics so far. It was really like I was putting her together and it was so satisfying when she was all "dressed". I thought she shaded pretty well, but I'm still working on this aspect of using copics. I've read about lots of people going to trainings on using copics and I hope one comes near me sometime.
Side note: Yeah! Today is my birthday and my hubby comes home! Every year though when my birthday comes around and I always joke with my family and friend that I'm a) lucky to be here in the states, because if we were all in Korea we would all be a year older (I was told that Koreans traditionally are considered 1 when they are born - if this incorrect please let me know) and b) maybe I'm even younger because since I was adopted there was no official record of my birth, just what a 4 1/2 year old would say. Hmmm... no, I am very happy to call myself 37 - Yikes! that looks awfully close to 40. (I'm lol right now, ok I'm actually col (coughing out loud)).
