And Sunday was a beautiful relaxing day for me...but my hubby was working so he will get his father's day card today when he comes home.

Copic Certified!

I just returned from Winnipeg where I attended the Copic Certification Course taught by Sherrie Siemens. Sherrie is such a wonderful teacher! I learned so much and had so much fun and the time went to quick and before I knew it, it was time to head home. Anyways, I will be teaching some classes using Copic Markers and all the fun things you can do with them. If you would like to attend a class or host one in your home please let me know and we can make arrangements.
Here is a card I made using the Copic markers to color the little girl.

The Ring

I just came across this layout in my book that I had did a while ago. There is a really cute story that goes with the layout and I have hinged the front photo to reveal the journalling. Quick version of the journalling is that my hubby is such a sweetheart and buys me gifts all the time. (Yeah I know I am spoiled!) Anyways for my 40th birthday he had given me a ring...only it looked familiar...he had given me that same ring about 5 years before! The people at the jewelery store had such a laugh when we returned it for another style.

Anyways all supplies are Close To My Heart unless otherwise noted.
