Sweet Tooth!

Hiya Peeps!

I hope you all have had a super month so far!  Can you believe it's almost December!!  For many of you, Autumn is just 2 days away....but for me...Spring has finally come!  I really couldn't be happier!!  We have had a tremendously cold winter this year!  Usually winter isn't so persistent here by us.  It's cold for 2 weeks, then reasonable weather for a week etc!  But this year, winter came whilst it was still suppose to be summer!  And finally it will be over for a while!

Off the weather topic!  I made this card using Sweet Tooth!  She is so sweet.  I had tremendous fun coloring her!  As Copic collection is growing by the month, I have a bigger variety of colors to work and play with.  If you don't have Copic's, I strongly recommend getting some!  Their the next best thing to ....hmmm...., Ok, they might be the best thing EVER!!

Well, thank you for looking!

Remember that we have a super challenge over at Elisabeth Bells world!
