Cool Copics

Good afternoon : ) ! Whew, the past few days have been busy, busy, busy. Had a fun SU workshop with my Bling Babes Club last night : ) and 2 more classes/workshops coming right up... we're doing Spring~Mother's Day projects (I'll show you what we made next week)! The Copic Certification class in Eugene last Friday was SO MUCH FUN... and it's official, I'm a Copic Certified Designer! Cami (stampalittlelove) invited me to attend the class and man, am I ever glad I said yes! If you ever have the opportunity to attend one of Marianne's Copic classes, you don't want to miss it!! More details about the Copic Markers and you can contact Marianne about upcoming classes too...right HERE at copicmarkers.com! Today's cards were all made with the image pieces I was practicing and experimenting with at the Copic Class...so they're not perfect, but after Marianne's awesome instructions and inspiration, my shading is improved. Oh, how I love coloring. There's something therapuetic about it. Thank you (times a million) to Joy, from Eclectic Paperie, who was also at the class! She is so nice...such a sweetie! She let me stamp these wonderful Penny Black images! She's got her Copics on sale right now over at Eclectic Paperie, so if you're into Copics...check it out HERE, great prices!
