LPS Preview - {Tweet Wishes Lucy}

It's MONDAY!! Hah, do you love the enthusiasm? Well we started off yesterday with new PREVIEWS for the February release from the {Little Paper Shop}, and we are continuing that party train today! This is {Tweet Wishes Lucy}, another fun set in the Lily & Lucy series. Julia has outdone herself with these little darlings. Isn't she SWEET?? I had a lot of fun with her. Remember, release day is tomorrow!


For my project today, I started off by stamping Miss Lucy in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on PTI white and coloring her with Copics. My color scheme came from this week's Copic Colour Challenge {CCC51}, which matched up SO WELL with this newest Basic Grey Sugar Rush, I just about jumped for joy! Stamped the sentiment directly onto the DP, and roughed up all the edges using the Tonic distress tool. That's a matching BG Sugar Rush stitched brad at the top, along with some of the AMAZING Prima mini roses (I know, where have I been that I only just now got these?!?!?!) for the corner element and she's ready to go!

I used a sketch to make this card; actually, I used the same sketch that I used yesterday! It just fit so well, heehee. I flipped it though, and I think it brings a whole new look! ;-) This is Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #60 {MTSC60}. This one is for the current week, a new sketch will be up tomorrow. Here it is for reference:

And here's the Copic Colour Challenges swatch too. I did pretty well matching the colors on this one!
Lastly, over at Crazy 4 Challenges, they wanted to see RED cards this week, and this one has plenty! Check out the crazies - this is C4C24!
Be sure to visit the LPS store blog today and enter a comment for a chance to win this set! It's also the start of a new weekly challenge {LPSC55 is the keyword for public forum uploads}; and you know that when a challenge falls on release week, Julia gives away an EXTRA set to a lucky challenge participant! This week's is easy - add distressing to your project. I roughed up all of my edges and chose paper that had a bit of a distressed look to it as well. Link up on the challenge post on the LPS store blog to enter!

Before I go, a quick candy announcement!
