Okay, I did it when I was at Hobby Lobby (feels like ages ago now) I saw they were selling Copic Markers with a BONUS 30% off sale and I had some 40% coupons. So I did pick up a handful for a steal compared to the going price on the Internet. I AM SO HAPPY;) I just wanted to try a few to see what they were like and now I am HOOKED on them. Anyone know when the next big Copic Marker sale will be at Hobby Lobby? The only downfall was they did not have many of the PTI color chart markers and they can not order them or give rain checks for the markers they are out of. I did find that the red and purple tended to wonder out of the lines if you colored close so I learned to leave some room around the edge and it would blend itself to the line by the time you were done coloring.

It is very relaxing indeed to color with Copics what a great stress reliever, I kick up my feet in my comfy chair and start blending away.

WOW! This is gorgeous! Looks like you spent your sabbatical from the computer well! This is one of the best cards you've ever done, IMHO. Love your coloring, and thanks for the tip!

What a great card, Sara. Your coloring is fantastic. Mindy and I are just learning how to use the copics. Wish we had a Hobby Lobby here in PA.

Oh boy you've done it now! Those Copics are wonderful aren't they??!! I do the exact same thing, feet up and color the stress away. This card is just gorgeous. I love the coloring of the couch, almost looks velvety. Great layout too.
