1000 Wishes....Magnolia

Hello! I am trying to get back into the swing of things. I did get to color some images this past weekend and even put together a few cards. Figured I would try to get a little caught up on DT projects because my hubby has this bright idea that we should, at the spur of the moment, hop into the car and drive up North so the kids can see some snow (no they have not seen snow, the oldest has seen some "fake" snow made at Sugar Mtn, NC but he doens't consider it the "real" stuff). Ok...so seeing snow sounds great but....hello...I know what snow in the Carolinas is like (I lived there as a teenager). Snow in S/N Carolina has lots of ICE!! So his idea of driving through the MTNS to see snow is not all that appealing to me! ;-) My friend was in North Georgia last week, they couldn't get up the road to get to their cabin and ended up having to stay at a Hotel in another town because alot of others had the same problem and the hotels were all booked!

The Northeast and parts of the South are getting a storm this weekend, he is trying hard for me to go. I don't think I can get off work so soon after Christmas break.  I am trying to push him off til the following weekend! I wouldn't mind going tubing...I love tubing. I just really don't look forward to driving in the snow. I have only drove in snow 1 winter....thats it!! He has NEVER drove in the snow!! Whenever we go out west for Skiing, we go with his parents and his father always drives. Ok, enough rambling on about the snow. You northerners are probably laughing at this silly Florida girl!!

Spellcaster Tilda is colored on Papertrey Ink Paper. My fav paper for coloring with Copics. I used a Stardust GellyRoll pen for the wand area.The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I added some sparkle to them with Stardust Stickles. It's my favorite of the "clear" stickles. The others seem weird to me..I like Stardust the best. The heart was drawn by me and stamped with a sentiment from CTMH. The paper and ribbons are from my stash.

Oh, wish me luck I am teaching my first Copic 101 class this Thursday at my Local Scrapbook Store. I can't wait.

What a gorgeous card, Tracy! I love the way you've coloured her!

You're scaring me with all this talk of the two of you driving in the snow LOL... I hope you at least have all season tires on your car! :) I'm sure it would be a blast though! And a unique experience for your kids.
