Sunday Bliss

Good Morning!  It's a lovely Sunday morning.  The sun is shining, I have a big mug of my favorite coffee and I am playing at my craft table - this is one of the ways I define bliss.

I have a card to share with you that I made for 4 different challenges.  I won a challenge over at All That Scraps, so of course, I have to play along with this challenge with my new stamps.  So ATS' challenge is an Anything Goes challenge.  I am also entering this card in the CMC Copic Challenge (Hot Pink, Black & White).  And the iCopic Lover challenge is smooth and shiny hair.  And finally, the card design is from this week's Just Us Girls sketch challenge.  I usually don't combine more than 2 challenges, but this one worked so well.  I have technique, sketch, color combo and the chance to play with new stamps from one of my favorite stamp companies.  Another way to define bliss perhaps?

Stamps:  Coffee Birgitta (CC Designs), Mixed Messages (AmyR Stamps), Polka Dot Blooms (TSG)
 Ink: Tuxedo Black, Lilac Posies, Angel Pink (Memento)
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Black (Recollections), Pink Passion (SU!)
Paper:  Unknown - found in my stash
Copics:  C5, C7, C8, C10, E00, E000, E02, E30, E34, RV02, RV02, RV13, W-0, W-2
Tools:  Square punches (CM), Spring Bouquet punch (SU!), sm Oval punch (SU!)

I really don't like taking pictures during the day.  If this makes any sense, my room has lots of sunshine but its so full of shadows, it's impossible get good pictures.  This one I ended of having to take it with the card laying down on my bed and I shot above it.  Crazy!  Now you can see a bit of my cozy blanket (nope, the bed isn't made yet).  And I'm still losing a little of the element in my card.  Sorry.

She is super cute!! and I love your definitions of "bliss" - at the crafting table with a good cuppa (something) is bliss!! And playing with your favorite stamps is always blissful! And I completely understand about good photos.. lately my craft room has been the place to do it, but the angle my card has to sit at makes it near impossible to shoot. I'll be working on that. hum..
