Let the Relaxation Begin, Copics and DS Paper Share

Good Monday Morning Peeps! Hope you all had a great weekend.

Today's card is made with a new set I just got called "Branch Out". I love it! Such possibilities with this set.

I used Jen Del Muro's Sketch For You To Try, for the layout on this card.

I started with a base of chocolate chip followed by some So Saffron and the The DS paper is from SAB. The sentiment is also a SAB set, I just inked up part of it. I also used other new goodies, my flower asst. brads in chocolate chip and the new edge punch. Some more so saffron ribbon that is also available during SAB only. Added a butterfly to the corner, it is a MS punch.

I am sure all of you know about Copics Markers, but I am new to them, I have read alot about them and seen so many beautiful things done with them, I wanted to try some, but didn't know anyone with them, so I started to acquire a few, they sell some at Hobby Lobby, they are pricey tho, $6.49 each, but I use my 40% off coupon, and I have gotten a few, little by little. I still only have a handful, maybe a dozen so far, and I hadn't tried to use them yet. I was waiting til I had enough to color something. So over the weekend I wanted to try something and see what all the "talk" was about. This is what I did:

Like I said I only have a few, but I was really, really, really impressed with them! They are so AWESOME!! I MUST get a bunch!!! They color like nothing I have ever used! I didn't have any gray's to do the bucket so I used some blues. I can't say enough about good about them! I just had to show you! I know I need alot more practice with these, to get to the level I would like, but WOW!!!!

On another note, I have been toying with the idea of doing a SU
Designer Paper Share. Here is how it would work:

By participating in this Designer Paper Share,

you will receive 96 - 6 x 6 sheets of double-sided designer series paper AND 24 - 6 x 6 sheets of double-sided textured designer series paper (120 sheets total) for only $28!!

If you were to purchase each pack of designer paper separately, you would spend over $207 + tax + shipping & handling. A really great way to get a sample of all the Designer Paper. This is only the Designer Paper, not the Patterns Designer Paper.

A group of 8 will share each pack of Designer Series Paper and once a group is filled I'll order the designer paper and prepare it for shipping or pick up.

If anyone is interested please e-mail me and as soon as I have 8, I will send you a paypal invoice. Anyone person can purchase more than 1 share if they would like.

If you need your share shipped there will be an additional shipping charge of $5.00. Local people to me, may pick up their shares.
