Blooming with Gratitude

This is such a beautiful stamp set. I guess that's why SU named the set Blooming Beautiful :) ! I colored this image with my Copic Markers and added a sentiment from the All Holidays set. In future posts, I plan to share some of my favorite Copic Colors with you. For instance, the flower pot uses 3 of my favorite Earth tones (E15, E25 & E29). We all have our favorite colors, but if you REALLY want to learn about Copics, the expert on this subject is, without a doubt, Marianne Walker ! If you have a Copic question, she has the answer, I can pretty much guarantee it! Her blog, I Like Markers, has tons of helpful hints and ideas. Marianne's blog is the best resource I can give you for learning more about Copics!

I had hoped to post the Calendar Tutorial today, but it's taking a little more time than I anticipated to prepare the post, so it will be tomorrow. It's a great little project you won't want to miss :)
I have a beautiful RAK to share with you....from Angel Wilde (Angelosity)~

Hi Nancy. your cards are great, and I really like the flower pot and your colouring. Sorry to be so quiet lately but I was enjoying a blogging brake :o)

I agree - Blooming Beautiful is very appropriately named. Your card is gorgeous. I love the embellishment on the Season of Friendship card.
