He's a 'Keeper'!!!

Hello out there! I'm finally getting a bit caught up on my blurfing! If I haven't been around to see you yet, I'll get there soon!

I have to take a break from cardmaking to show you what DH got for me!
(The markers, not the Scor-Pal!)
I must say that DH is definitely a 'keeper'! I don't know why I was blessed with such a wonderful man, but I'm so lucky!
Now all I have to do is learn how to use them!!!
There are ALL 133 (?) of the CIAO's, 36 Sketch, 14 Glitter Pens, Big Markers, a bottle of Blender solution, a Multi-Liner, Black Marker, etc.
This wonderful bag with all of the great pockets was a gift from my dear friend Shirley. She also surprised me with this adorable name tag. As she has an identical bag, I got a pink with white dots "P" tag, and she got a black with pink dots "S" tag, so that when we take classes together we don't get our bags mixed up. I'm also blessed with wonderful friends!!!

Okay, now I need to learn to color.... my colored pencils will soon be getting very lonely! If you have any pointers for me, please feel free to comment, or to e-mail me!


Have a great night - see you tomorrow!

Patti J.

Dawnll said...

Wow girl! I am so excited for you! Did he ask you or did he just go and surprise you and pick them out?
I would have wet my pants if my honey ever picked out craft supplies for me- especially something as exciting as Copics.
I know you will enjoy- don't get discouraged and take time to go to you tube and watch videos and practice practice.
I would suggest Suzanne Dean videos she really is the best out there.She has about 100 videos showing techniques and such.
