Dude!

I was dying to try out the copic pens I bought the other day with wini. I broke down and bought some. To be exact, only 8! I told myself that although these pens are fantastic, I couldn't buy them all. I love my SU stampin write markers but there are just some colors that frustrate me to use. One of them is the blush blossom. I love to use that color to color skin. Back with the original blush blossom pen, the color was perfect. The new version is too dark (I personally feel). What's your take on the shade? Anyway, I went over to Hawaiian Graphics because they seem to have the best prices on the copies and wini told us about the coupon. I printed out two 40% coupons. Did you know that if you have a credit back card, you can get 20% off? So these pens costed less than $35 which is a good price!
In case you were interested in knowing the colors I purchased, they are: The colors I bought were ROO Pinkish White, RV10 Pale Pink, R29 Lipstick Red, YG03 Yellow Green, B32 Pale Bluem, E 37 Sepia, T1 Toner Gray and Y15 Cadmium Yellow. I felt that this was pretty basic. Wini and I spent a good amount of time "testing" out the colors to make sure that's what we wanted. When the color dries, the shade changes. Okay, about the card I created - I used half of the image from Cool Friends. It's a stamp by Penny Black. I needed an image to match the saying from the new SU set called So Cool. My son told me to get this set - this is his language! I colored the cool kid using my copics and I liked the way it turned out. The image was first stamped with my Staz-on ink pad. What are you girls using? Other supplies used: Old olive, ballet blue and sahara sand CS, designer paper by Three Bugs and mini silver brads.
Here's a pic of Mochiko with a new cat nip friend. She doesn't go crazy over it but instead looks like he's invading her dollar basket - haha! Have a great weekend everyone! I'm off for my girl's day out with Jill!! We're going to Ala Moana and then to Berry Sweet for my body souffle, yippee!! Thanks for visiting me today!!

You find the neatest stamps! I love the Berry shampoo and there are lots of suds - gotta check out that store.

now that you've broken down to get some copics, what do you think?! You're right though - had you not mention that these are copics, I wouldn't even know!!! But you can tell in person though, cause it looks brighter than other pens, right?

Your kitty looks so cozy.... how cute!!
