In addition to learning about Copic markers we also made three cards. This is one of them. Of course the card layout and everything was Candice's design, but the coloring is mine. I was so happy to learn how to blend three colors. That third color really makes a huge difference in the depth you can get with the shading. I was quite impressed with this! The stamp is from Shirley's 2 Girls. I did buy this stamp and one other stamp by them, they had a lot of really nice designs. I have to run now so I can start laundry and get to bed, I will show you more in the coming days. Thanks for all the birthday wishes, it truly has been a great one.

Just a quick post, I just got home and I am beat. I have decided that if you have to turn 40, then make sure you do in in close vicinity to something that makes you happy enough that you don't think about turning 40!! We got home a little earlier, unloaded the car and my mom came in for a few minutes before heading out to her house. When she got ready to leave she turned the lock on the door and I got locked out of the house with no keys and no shoes. Kip is working so we had to go there to get his house key and now I am back in the house. I had so much fun this weekend. The Copic class that Candice taught was amazing. All of my Copic knowledge has been achieved from trial and error playing. It was great to learn more about them and to watch someone that really knows how to use them. It was also fun to meet some people that I "know" from online. In addition to Candice and some new friends, I was also able to meet another blogger Judy, it's nice to be able to put faces with the names. Judy surprised me with a birthday gift of cool ribbons, embellies and a travel bag. Thank you so much, I love the bling!
