Little Scraps of Heaven 2

Here is the other Little Scraps of Heaven
I am going to put on my door Monday.  
This one is called Chick in Egg.  

 I have also entered him in 

Little Scraps of Heaven Challenge

Every holiday I decorate my front door.  
With 6 cats, decorating the house isn't going to work, 
so my only option is the front door.

Tuesday I finally got all the St Patty's Day decorations up...
talk about waiting to the last minute.

So I figured I had better get moving with the Easter decorations, 
since it is so close to St Patty's Day.  
Monday St Patty's Day will come down, and Easter will go up.

I love Little Scraps of Heaven files. 
Every week they have a freebie.
A couple of weeks ago it was
Bunny with Egg.  

Here he is...all ready to go on the door Monday.

 Isn't he cute!!
I have entered him in the Challenge at Little Scraps of Heaven

My first Copic Markers

Since the beginning of time, I have wanted to try to Copic Markers.
BUT the price of them has scared me. 
What if I paid all that money and didn't like them. 
So I have stuck to my Prismacolor Pencils.  

Well, several weeks back I won FOUR Copic makers

I was give FRV1 Fluorescent Pink
BV000 Iridescent Mauve
YG97 Spanish Olive
YG25 Celadon Green

With 2 green colors I know just which image to use them on!  
The image is from the Spring Baskets Collection

Here is the card. 

I used all 4 markers.
I am now totally hooked on Copic Markers!!
