Did that catch your attention? lol! What’s my habit? Well, I have many….but you know I’m addicted to my paper crafting and all it involves! And….LOTS of toys go along with said addiction… one being my Copics!

I’ve had my markers for a few years and have been collecting refills here and there, but there comes a time when you just have to bite the bullet, markers are going dry, colors I use ALL the time…. just DO IT! order those refills!!!
Fortunately, I have saved my mad $$$ from publications, working shows, freelance work etc and use this cash for my toys!

Aren’t they purdyful!!! Looks like a marching band or soldiers on parade! LOL!

CopicRefills-232clsup-1

I found these wooden crates months ago at a thrift store, knew they’d come in handy for something!! I even have a little room leftover for a *ahem* few more should the need arise!Winking smile
And to save you trying to figure out just how many there are…. 232! Yes…. 232!!!

Several challenges on Splitcoast… the Inspiration and Queen For The Day this week.

ODBD Quatrefoil Pattern, Morning Glory, and Romantic Floral Designs along with Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags II and Memory Box Madeleine Bird for this card.

I die cut the bird/wing then stamped Morning Glory on the body and the flourish from Romantic Floral Designs on the wing, colored with Copics and popped it up!

Quick and simple!! Perfect for a busy Saturday!

WooHoo! That is some refill collection. With anyone else I'd say who needs that much copic ink, but you make it perform such amazing tricks with your incredible colouring that I know every drop of that ink will go on to lead an exciting life. ;-) Brilliant organizing idea & such a stunning card. I love your technique on the die cut so much. Hope you're having a lovely weekend. ox
