Copic info...

I know, I know.. I have been silent for the longest time. I am a bad bad blogger! I have been completely consumed by my new iphone and the iBooks app lately. I have been reading like a mad woman and haven't had time to do anything crafty. I am obsessed with Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy Series... I am in the middle of finishing the 5th book Last Sacrafice now. ;0) That Rose Hathaway is one cool character! But, since she doesn't papercraft... I still need to get my creativity fix... I finally had a chance to do some web surfing today.

Here are a few cool copic related things I came across this morning.

Copic has updated their website. There is tons of cool new info up on the site. Definitely worth checking out the tutorials page.

Sharon Harnist has the new 346 Copic marker Blank Color Chart on her blog here that includes the 12 new sketch colors.

I pre-ordered the 12 new sketch colors from iCopic along with some more X-Press It Blending cardstock and the new Miss Anya Hats Off stamp set from The Greeting Farm. I can't wait for my order to arrive. They should be here in March in time for my birthday. Yay!

Most notably I was looking at the new 6 piece sketch sets that will be released in April. I believe these are the ones that are/will be sold at some of the Hobby Lobby stores. They each have two markers paired for blending in 3 different colors. Good ideas here for selecting marker colors to buy if you are just starting out and slowly building your collection...

Ava's 1st Birthday!

My favorite baby, Ava, turned one on Sunday! Here is the card that I made for her. I wanted a pink theme to go with her present...her very first pink leather jacket! She really seamed to like the card, tried to eat it too!









Ava, her mommy Gina and her daddy Lou!
