Oh my, I'm having a good day!

Boy, do I have a lot of stuff I'm excited to tell you about today!  Let's start with the card:
I made today's card using Operation Write Home's Sketch Challenge #16 and I wanted to enter the Pixie Dust Studio blog challenge to use Kraft card stock.  So here he is!  This image is a digi stamp from Pixie Dust Studio that I colored with Copic markers and added a little air brushing to the background and white half pearls.  I think I "need" an air compressor so I can keep practicing! 

Speaking of Operation Write Home, have you signed up for their Memorial Weekend blog hop yet?!  Click on their name and you're on your way!  I'm signed up and working on my projects,  I'm also offering BLOG CANDY that day!   Along with the blog hop I'll be celebrating my 3rd year of blogging, so I suppose you could say it's my Blogaversary.   I hope you'll participate in the blog hop it's going to be a lot of fun!

One more thing about OWH to tell you!  Sandy contacted me recently and asked if I'd like to help with the Midweek Throwdown and I accepted her offer!  I'm part of the Operation Write Home blog team now and I'm so excited!  I have a lot to learn, there's a bunch of work that goes on behind the scenes that we aren't even aware of... and I get to help!!

And then... I had a really good day yesterday...  I entered a few challenges last week and discovered that I'd been chosen at Polly Craft as one of their top three favorites.  Wow!   I have a cute new badge for my blog now ;)   Then I went over to check out what was happening at the Tiddly Inks blog and found I'd won a prize from their blog hop, oh my I was having a good day!

I need to go now,  I have a Copic coloring class to prepare for and I'm still in my p.j.'s.  I hope your day is even better than mine was yesterday!  Talk with you soon~
