What's the Word, Nerd?

Lately I have been really bogged down with deadlines and therefore no real time to just sit and colour (my favourite thing to do!)... so this weekend, I actually took some time to just sit down and colour... just 'cuz!

Awhile back I had won some fun stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie's were I had participated in one of their challenges.  The stamp arrived last week and I knew I just had to get them all inky!  So with their Online Krafty Krop going on, I thought I'd work away at one of the 5 challenges posted:

I chose challenge #2: paper piecing.

For my image, I chose the stamp set "Smarty Pants" to paper piece.  I wish now that I had stuck with one specific colour scheme for my card but oh well!  Too late!  I was all over the place with this one!  LOL!

I paper pieced her book and her desk and the rest I coloured using Copic Markers.

Thanks for stopping in!  I hope I get a chance to create some more for the KK Krop challenges.  Have a great weekend everyone.
