This said because I have been eyeing the Copic markers. Reading their site, and lots of blogs and posts on Splitcoast. Trying to become very informed because I was wanting to make a purchase but wanted to be sure that I had done ALL of my homework before investing in them. Too much money to just randomly buy with no rhyme or reason!
Well I had a birthday this past week while we were gone on vacation, and my hubby came thru for me again!! Love ya babe!
He listened earlier in the month when he asked what I wanted for my birthday! I told him then copic markers. Well, all he heard was 'markers'! He knew it wasn't just ordinary markers but really wasn't sure what I was talking about. So, he made a phone call to his Personal Shopping Advisor, and my good friend Jody! He told her he knew I wanted some kind of markers but wasn't sure what I was talking about. Jody went to work and set him up with some links and he went from there.
The girl knows how to hook you up! And the shopper too!
I was pleasantly surprised with a set of Copic Markers on my birthday. Thanks again hon, I love them! And Jody you are the bomb girl, thank you!
So now I am home from vacation and excited to get back to stamping and using this Hanna set again! Now I have some good markers to use to color with! I can't wait but there are some chores to be done first before I can justify stamping time!

I think that I will probably give this card to my Father-in-law (I hope he appreciates it!) for father's day. I probably will do one similar to send to my own dad! He will appreciate it! I love that about him, even at his age he is quite impressed with my stamping. It is something I didn't think would happen but he brags about my stuff to people, you gotta love it! He actually gets it!
This card has creamy carmel textured paper, chocolate chip and shimmery white. I colored the truck with su markers, I might just be getting the hang of them. The saying is stamped with chocolate chip. I used my nestabilities for the square and scallop square that the truck is on.

I have mentioned before, I love lighthouses. Not sure what it is about them but I really do like them. Love pictures of them, stamps, you name it!
My mom had a thing for seagulls. Don't know what it was but she really liked seagulls. Same thing with her! She had pictures, figurines, jewelry, you name it. I always found it odd as they are scavengers by nature! Anyway, so I was in a stamp store and saw this stamp. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to buy it.
It was the perfect cross between the two images!
I used this SU saying with it as I thought it was very fitting. The new basic gray from SU is the frame around the main image, it is stamped with the background stamp sanded. The main card is going gray with the image stamped on Shimmery white. I added the little charms on the old SU silver cord in the corner under the knotted grosgrain.
