A few weeks ago I signed up for the Online Card Classes Copic Markers for Card Makers and today was the first day of class! This class is being taught by Kristina Werner, Jennifer McGuire and Sandy Allnock along with a few other crafty guests. I did purchase a few Copics in the past but recently jumped on the bandwagon and started buying more so this class came at a great time! Today's lesson was to practice two and three color blending. I didn't have the recommended paper suggested to use with Copics (waiting for my supply order) so I used a paper by Crafter's Companion which is meant for alcohol based markers. Here's my sample coloring; not bad but that's why I'm taking the class, LOL!

I haven't been stamping much this year but I did manage to make a few cards for some birthdays. I was clearing out some images on my camera and came across this card that I made back in May. The floral image is from JustRite's The Greatest Joy Stamp set and the happy birthday greeting is a Hero Arts Decorate It! message stamp. The interior sentiment is from My Favorite Things' Die-namics Polka Dot Greetings set.
