Thanks So Much

Ok, today my copic markers arrived. WOOT! So, I colored some Lily images that I won in a blog candy from {jillb}, incidentally the first 3 copics were in this blog candy too. She is totally my main copic enabler. LOL I do realize that these didn't turn out great--I still love them and WILL definitely be using them later. The whimsy, it's the whimsy. Also, copics are going to take practice and many many hours watching youtube how to videos. I'm ok with that. LOL Here's my first foray into the world of copics. I was pretty willy-nilly when it came to choosing colors, I was just getting my feet wet.




Also, I've been introduced to a new challenge blog! Woot--it's called Stamp Something. This weeks challenge is to make a 'thank you'. Well, I just so happened to make a half dozen tonight--remember all that blog candy I won last week? The cards turned out great, the photo did not.
