Hedgehog "Here Comes Christmas"

As requested by my friend m.h. here is the Christmas hedgehog I did on Saturday.  Before coloring I used my "Masquepen" which is a cool blue masking fluid that dries and I have used when water coloring.  This was the first time I have ever tried it with the Copic markers. It worked...there was some bleeding under the mask but the liquid mask worked for the effect I wanted.

On vacation

New Colony, Tx.

I know several have asked where I have been.  Right now we are visiting children and grandchildren near Dallas, Tx.  Let me tell you....I lived in the Dallas area for over 20 years.  Suffered through the worst (I thought) in 1980 of 42 days of 100+ degrees of heat.  Coming from South Carolina and jumping into 100+ heat  is like dropping a frog into boiling want to jump right out of it!!!  It has been over 2-1/2 years since we have been here and I had 2 grandchildren I had never got to hold.  John, our son and his wife Holly have 4 children ages 5 to 1-1/2.  The oldest is a only granddaughter. They are an arm full and all different.  What a joy!  Needless to say I haven't had much time or opportunity with 8 little hands to work with my Copic markers or anything else.  I plan to be back at the store Friday morning and get things back to normal.  In the meantime I am enjoying hearing them calling me "GRRAAANDMAAA" ;)
