AS I WAS COMMENTING ON CARDS FROM THE COFFE LOVER'S BLOG HOP I CAME ACROSS A CARD THAT HAD THIS IMAGE. IT WAS A FREEBIE SHE GOT FROM STAMPLORATIONS AND I THOUGHT IT WAS SO CUTE AND I'M PASSING IT ON. SO, IF YOU WANT THEIR FREEBIE GO HERE.
IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN. THE SUMMER COFFEE LOVER'S BLOG HOP 2016
I'M USING A SET THAT I WON FROM THANH VO DURING THE SPRING COFFEE LOVER'S BLOG HOP. SHE HAD THIS AS BLOG CANDY. THANKS, THANH.
NOW, I KNOW MY COFFEE ISN'T COFFEE COLORED. Y'ALL JUST WORK WITH ME AND USE YOUR IMAGINATION AS HERE IN JACKSONVILLE BEACH, FLORIDA THE HEAT INDEX TODAY WAS 106 °. SO I COLORED MY ICED COFFEE TO LOOK COOL. WE ARE EXPECTING A COOL FRONT OVER THE WEEKEND. SOMEWHERE AROUND 85°. A DAY OF SNOW WOULD BE NICE. GETTING RID OF DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME WOULD BE NICE, TOO.
IF I HADN'T LOOKED AT KITTY'S BLOG TODAY I WOULDN'T HAVE KNOWN IT WAS THE SUMMER COFFEE LOVER'S BLOG HOP. THANKS, KITTY.

I'm on Lesson 3 of Sandy Allnock's Copic Jumpstart class. We've been practicing and experimenting with our shading. Some colors I've used were not so pretty together. So I throw those in the recycle bin. My yellows on this page were not quite what I wanted but I'm keeping it and will do better next time. I've practiced with some other colors and they turned out rather well. Sometimes magic does happen. I do love my Copics and am always trying to learn as much as possible. As with anything else, coloring takes practice. It's never too late to start if you'd like to join in. We are on lesson 4 today. I have been behind as I'm having a hand issue. I can at least color with my good hand. Thank goodness these lessons don't require us to be on the same page as everyone else. Plus, I can look at the videos over and over.
