This week is a sad one for me...

On Saturday and Monday, two people who I am friends with passed away. Mr. Poet and Marge, Marge has been battling cancer for 2 years now, she made it to her 85th birthday, and surpased all expectations of the doctors and hospic. Marge you are loved no matter where you are. I have been working on a Sympathy card for Marge's daughter Linda and her family. I will post the image of the final card when it's completed, but for now I'll leave you with a little information of what image it is and the colors I chose to use.

Whimsy's Sympathy Bugs


     Copic Colors:
BV000, BV20, BV23
B0000, B00, B12
G000, G20, G21, G24
E000, E31, E33, E50
W00, W0

I hope that all of my readers and occasional browsers have a Wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday, and may the rest of your year be filled with family and loved ones. Hold them tight, keep them safe, and tell them that you love them.

Copic Intermediate Certification

And now I am certified in the Intermediate level :) Yeah me! Now I just need to find time that I can devote to teaching people how to use their Copic markers. I did however hear that they are going to be coming out with 4 more classes, built into 2 back to back days, 4 hour sessions. Rumors are you will learn about using Copics to make unique backgrounds, one class is all about people, and there are 2 other classes which she did not talk about. I cant wait to see those classes pop up in Michigan :D Well now I have to get packed and head home so I can finish a report and go back to work on Monday :( such is life :D
