School Fun

Hello, have you had a good weekend so far? I am so lucky.. .:-) I finally found the picture of the card i made for the Pretty Pressings sketch a couple of days ago. I thought i added the card into the Magnolia envelope without taking a picture of it :-) (iam getting oooooold) I just found the picture on the harddrive - perfect this way i do not have to publish a card using the same image as used on yesterday's card.
I used on Edwins vest Copic color G99 - it is the same color i used on Tilda's dress in "Winter Wonderland" and i think this is one of the most difficult colors to work with. For some reason i can not blend this color nice and it "streaks" more than the other colors. If i go over it to get the streaks out it get very very dark. I like the color but it is challenge for me to use this marker especially when i have to color small areas in.
Now for the winners of the Magnolia card kit. Random Integer Generator has picked:

6 CraftyB from the U.K.
123 Mada from the U.K
56 Andrea from Germany
31 Wendy Patross
149 Sharon from the UK

I love all your cards but this one is so different. You're so talented. Wish I could do all that you do. I found your site from Irina. Can you tell me where the clock and the calendar came from?
