Congratulations 2013
I hope everyone summer is going along just fine this year. It has been really hot and humid here even being so close to Lake Michigan it is still so hot down at the lake. The challenge at Cards For Men Challenge #14 has started and the twist for this time is going to be “BINGO”. What I used on my card die cuts, punches, digital image and twine. I do hope you will join us this will be a fun challenge and you have two weeks to enter you card challenge ends on July 21.

These are the copic markers used to color the image and the close up of the little boy. Thanks so much for stopping by, your comments mean so much to me.  Hope you have a wonderful week.
Congratulations 2013  c
Wanted to remind everyone if your thinking about taking any Copic classes now would be a good time.
Its a great time to stock up and get some classes you've wanted because there won't be another sale until Christmas and nothing as good as this one :)  And if you buy class(es) now you DO NOT have to start them until you are ready.  That means if you buy 2 classes now and don't have time to start them until October or Nov for example that is FINE.  Class doesn't start until you are ready to start it and it moves at your own pace.  Once you sign into a class through the invite your 1 year term does start though.  So just a thought for you!  If you decide to bundle a few classes email me and I can get you one invoice so you are not troubled with multiple transactions!  See all the Copic Classes at

This is such a great image and design for a boy. I really like the image - I think it's perfect for both young and teenaged boys, it's rare to come across images like that. The colors, the papers, the embellishments - it all works so well with a male design!
