BLACK & WHITE or SEPIA

Hi Friends and Stampers,

It's time for a New Challenge over at the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog!  This week we are asking you to show us your Black and White or Sepia.  Some time ago, I did my first black and white coloring.  I was nervous at first but I had a lot of fun doing it.  It hung at our local scrapbook store for over a year.  I was very proud of that one.  But I have never attempted Sepia or tried a black and white since then.  I'm not sure why.  I'm still nervous. lol.  You would be amazed at how many shades you can make if you put your mind to it, lol. 

 
 
I could not believe that my best Sepia Colors were found in a Halloween pad of paper, lol.  I colored them up with Copic E's.  And it was fun.  I hope you will join us and try it out.  I was so stoked about how these came out that I have decided to try this Challenge again for my Friday card.  I hope you will pop in and see what I made. 
 
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and then Christmas!  EEEEK!!!!  I love Christmas but this year the budget is saying we must dread it's arrival, lol.  But just for now, I want to focus on fall and Thanksgiving and be grateful for all I have.  There is a Facebook thing going around where each day you say what you are Thankful for that day.  I decided to give it a whirl and go back to the First and think of something to be Thankful for each day.  Wow, it was hard to pick just one thing a day.  I might have to do this everyday!  lol. 
 
I hope you check out what NEW in the store and also, don't forget to Blog Hop for a chance to win a prize!  You can hop up until Saturday. 
 
Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments!
