Easter Brolly

I'm back!  I can't believe it's been almost one month since I posted last, I was only gone for 2 weeks, where did the time go???  And what an adventure it's been.  I got to visit Shanghai for work and also got to see some sights as well.  Then from there I had to go to Sweden for a week so by the time I got home my internal clock was completely out of whack!  Today, 6 days later, I'm finally starting to feel human again and getting my mojo back.  Just in time for an Easter card...  Thanks for visiting!

As You Like It Favorite Coloring Medium and Why
About 99.9% of my projects use some sort of alcohol marker but I lean toward my Copics.  I'm still learning and spend a few hours a week watching tutorials and staring at the works of others.  I have acquired a huge list of crafters that I admire and aspire to join the ranks of one day, maybe in a few more years?!
