A few shares and a new Monday's Fun Day!!!

Memories Live On is going to be carrying Copic Markers so I decided it's about time I opened up that gorgeous set of Copic markers that Kevin got me for our anniversary and start getting to know them. I posted a trial effort when I first got them several months ago with the owls. Okay... well here's my first finished card with the markers.


I can not wait to take the certification class! I can't seem to get online with Copic to see their schedule of when/where their next classes are going to be held. Can someone tell me their schedule?

My holiday boutique at the preschool went well. I had many handmade items for sale that sold as the night went on. Here are a couple of samples of what I had on my table:

Peppermint Patty holders:

Nugget holders:


Ready for Monday's Fun Day?

How about some yummy flowers and brads?
Check these out!


I use them all the time for cardmaking and scrapbooking! These flowers are so fun to use!
The brads closely match the colors of the flowers and I love adding glitter to the tops of them for some added dimension.

If you would like to have a chance to receive this and more, just post here what your favorite holiday song is.

Good luck!
Happy Monday, everyone!!
