Ellen Hutson's Mix it Up Challenge

Banner-MIX-it

Ellen Hutson is mixing it up with Penny Black this time ... OH what a great reason to check on the availability of a set I've been eyeing since I began this card-making journey: Dahlias - guess what?  I got lucky, because it is out of stock again!

Kelly Purkey's Second City paper for theM.E. die cut panel;
One of my new E.by E. Up the Happy by Julie; 
Copic coloring; and a few little happy tears from PPP.
 
You all know that I am very new with Copics, right?  I was delighted to see that Penny Black is kind enough to show a colored example right on the packaging!  It helped me immensely - brilliant idea!
 
Thanks for the visit!  and for all the prayers, I surely believe they are being answered as our little peanut is making progress!  xx

Oh, this is so pretty! - To my big dismay I did not have time to make a Muse card :( - have to keep the idea you gave me filed away for later use.... and I can't even vote for your card...what a pity...

New with Copics? Never could tell. This looks FABULOUS!! And I thank you for making me have to buy that Houndstooth die that you showcased on your card the other day. I found it at SSS and bought it!! You enable me and I am supposed to be on a spending hiatus!!

Great job on the Copic colouring, Michele! Especially love the sentiment, which is very touching considering the great news that your new Grandchild is making progress.

You are doing well with your Copics, Michele. The more I see them the more I want them but most places are out of stock on the few I'd like to start with. I love your matching frame around that beautiful Dahlia. So happy to hear the baby is doing well.
