Breaking the Silence

I've been silent on my blog for the last year. Between moving to a new home and my parents moving from Oregon to Nebraska to live with us, posting hasn't been a priority. But, I decided to work on posting again so I can enjoy seeing the cards I create. It's such fun making someone's day with a handmade card.

I've been purchasing Copic markers and having such fun learning to use them.  Less than two years ago I did buy Spectrum Noir markers by Crafters Companion but found they are just not as nice as the Copics. However, they are a fraction of the cost so that makes sense; they are a good marker for the money.   I should have know to go with the "cat's meow" in the first place.  I'm not truly an artist so thought they would be okay and they were but I do have champagne taste even when my budget doesn't support it. Anyway, I kept pining after the Copics and my hubby pushed me to get started with my collection; what a guy.  Love you sweetheart!

Here's a digital stamp card that I colored.  I think she's a cutie pie.  I have such fun trying to find FREE digi-stamps on the internet.  There is something to be said however for a rubber stamp.  I think that the image lines are much crisper and make for a cleaner image. I am not good at remembering who made what products and what I actually used to make the card so that I can give credit to the right people.  I'll have to work on that.

I hope you enjoy hearing from me again!

Joyfully, Stephanye
