Help For Simply Betty Stamps

Hello Friends,
I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend.  Fall has finally arrived here in Maryland.  I read some sad news on my friend Simply Betty Stamps blog, her 17 year old son has throat cancer.  She is releasing her stamp set earlier than planned and selling them at a discount price to raise money to help off-set the cost of his hospital bills.  Please go to her blog and read more about it.  http://simplybettystamps.blogspot.com/2011/10/special-release-and-some-very-sad-news.html

As most of you know I started taking an on-line Copic Coloring Class about three weeks ago and I LOVE it!  I am really enjoying learning about shading and blending and coloring, so much so that I think I am going to take two more classes that are offered.  I downloaded this digi from Simply Betty Stamps to pratice all that I have learned so far in my class and to enter the red, black & slimy green challenge at Craftysprouts.


I used a moss green copic pen to make the slimy green on the graves and tree.  Do you see the cobblestones under his feet?  Learned how to do that in the copic class.  I just wish I had more pens! Thanks for stopping by.  Hugs!

"When the trees their summer splendor
Change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns mellow,
And the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
And the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is autumn,
Loveliest season of the year."
- Carol L. Riser, Autumn
