Happy New Year!!!

Hope everyone brought in the New Year with a bang!!! My hubby and I celebrated the New Year at my BFF Tracy's of Buttons Ribbons and Pearls. She is always the hostest with the mostest..... Great night had by all. We chit chatted and had many awesome snacks and of course some fabulous wine....watched the ball drop with a glass of champagne. Thanks Tracy your the best!!!

I started 2010 doing something I have never done before.....no longer a "copic virgin". How I got started with this new venture was at the Paper Pickle (my favourite local stamping store) where Linda Heavens of Heavens Created This or aka "Lindabella" was doing a copic demo..... so thought while I was there I would give it a whirl. Well...........do I need to say more....

I coloured this card using the very limited copic colours in my possession (at this time) and must say OMG......I am in love. I have purchased a few more and waiting not so patiently for their arrival. Decided on this simple image by Penny Black for Kenadie's 1st Birthday. Coloured with copics, cut out with nesties, added a ribbon and some glitter to the balloons. This is my first copic card....let me know what you think!!!!!!!

Welcome to the dark side! LOL I love copics too and now have...about 76 markers! Yikes, I've been picking up a few here and there since last summer. What is so great about copics to me is that my colored image still looks good even though I can't shade worth a darn. LOL

Your coloring is fabulous!

Definitely had a fabulous time on New Years and so glad that you and the Hubby were here to ring in 2010! So you've taken the "leap" into the Copic world ! You and I both know that this is going to cost me money! lol! Nice job on your first card using them. ;D Tracy

I meant thats "what" I first bought. Got my first set on ebay and have added from there. Maybe I'll have to try a copic soon!

Brenda, your card is so adorable!! I love it, and your colouring is superb. I have now collected a few Copics too and am hoping to soon have enough to start using them. Hope my first effort is as good as yours, but I'm doubting it!! Happy New Year to you,

Hugs,
Diana

It only takes that first time coloring to fall in love. For me, it was coloring a Riley, and before I had finished the first antler, I was in love. Great job coloring, especially on those balloons!

Fantastic card Brenda.. love this. You know Copics are the gateway drug to the airbrush system they have! HA!!

Happy New Year to you and yours. With hugs, Peggy
