It's On!

Hi all!  Boy, I don't know about you but lately I've been feeling like someone's been stealing time from me!  You know, when you suddenly look at the clock and wonder how it's possible that 3 hours have gone by- especially because you don't feel like you actually accomplished anything in all that time, lol :)  Yup, that's been my life...BUT I finally managed to sneak a little bit away without anyone noticing- even that thief of mine- which meant I got to get crafty- yay!  I was fortunate enough to be able to spend some Christmas money on a Some Odd Girl order and pick up some clear stamp sets that I'd been coveting for a while now.  As soon as my package arrived I pulled those babies out and stamped so I could color them :)  This particular image, from the Gwen In Bloom set, was the first that I took my Copics to and I absolutely love her!  Plus, since it's been in the single digits and below where I live, I couldn't resist the chance to dream a little about spring :)  I hope you love her as much as I do and thanks so much for stopping by to visit me!
