When you have a big family … there is always some significant milestone happening. I have two to mention … but today’s card is for Sheree’s boyfriend, Murray. On Friday he completed his apprenticeship … and is now a fully fledged carpenter. There is no big fanfare or ceremonies for TAFE graduates … but I wanted to say CONGRATS! And … I found the perfect image over at Tiddly Inks!
Isn’t Carpenter Joe sooooo cool! I was tickled to find him! And … now I have another option for male cards! This is basically just colouring in with markers. I am happy with the result! 😀 I wanted to say a big thank you to all those who helped with my questions about Copics! One of my bloggies, Helen … mentioned that she uses Prisma colouring pencils … and that they do a good job without being as HUGE an expense as Copics. After investigating several sites … and reading comparisons … I have decided to go with the Prismas! I realise they may not give quite as professional a look as Copics … but … they are MUCH cheaper! And … because I won’t be using them all the time … I thought I couldn’t really justify spending $600 or more … when I could buy 150 Prismas for $150!!!
Well … I am well on the way to getting on top of that bookwork back log … so I will waddle off to do some more. And … I want to do something with Sandy today … as it is his last day of school holidays! Yikes!!! Already??? Where did the summer holidays go? Oh … and FINALLY (now that the holidays are ending) it is HOT HOT HOT!!! 😀 Have a great day! Hugs xx
