Wow, I am back with a card! I taught a Copic class this past weekend at my LSS. We were focusing on things in nature and this was one of the cards I demonstrated. I chose this one because it had a bird and the flowers. Everything, including the acrylic drops was colored with Copic markers. I went with a basic white background and then matted my image with pink and black card stock from Hobby Lobby.  I used W1, W3, W5 and G21 for the bird, RV000, RV02, RV04 and RV14 on the flowers, but I can't remember what I used on the leaves. The stamp is from Inkadinkado. 

I want to thank everyone that has sent me so many kind words and all the people that have checked on me over this past month. I am truly touched by your friendships. Most of my craft stuff is still packed away right now. I am hoping to have a post at least every other day from now on and then as soon as I can get to the rest of my stuff, I will go back to posting 5-6 days a week. I do have my Copics and finally got some paper to stamp on and I have some DP. I want to say a special thank you to Angela and Judy, both of these ladies have given me some supplies to work with. Angela is my crafting friend and we also work together and Judy sent me a box full of goodies--I felt like it was Christmas! I don't have a lot of embellishments that I can get to, but other than that, I think I have found enough to keep my busy for a while. Several other people have offered to send me things to replace what I lost, but I mostly only lost paper and some completed projects. The rest of my stuff just got moved and/or packed. We are going to take advantage of having to pack everything up and then redo the downstairs the way we wanted. Thanks again!

Gina I'm sure it will be a long, slow process, so sorry for that. But it is one beautiful card!

Gina, I hope your "adventure" goes as smooth as possible. It always helped me when I looked on adversity as an adventure...I'm glad to see you out taking classes at your LSS...I love doing that.
