I Wanna Be a Cowgirl (3 things to cover)

       I want to thank everyone for the kind comments and concerns over our unexpected issues with the water problem.  Looking back, things could had been worse.  We do have our good health (right now)...haha  Dear Deloris has to pay much more than me for a new water main line, and Cheryl1 had her entire basement flooded and lost irreplaceable items. It was so nice to know I have friends like you that have thought of us during this crazy, expensive time.  GOOD NEWS:  I received another BIG check in the mail on Saturday for administering the SAT back in December.  I had forgotten all about it!!! What a surprise!!!!

       Next: I bought a new storage box for my copics.  The one from Walmart for $3.50 was fine, but I had a $10 off coupon from Office Depot and was able to get this one for $10. (Originally $19.99)  It will hold 162 markers, closes nicely, has a handle and a combination lock.

Last, a challenge at I Did It Creations (Bling It On!).  You can choose from several free images to use on your card.   I was inspired by Deloris at Stamping At the Lake and Tammy at Create When I Can and Cheryl at Cafexpressions for her love of cowboy images.  I covered the girl's hat and clothes in copper textured embossing, used lots of blue rhinestones, and a large silver star.  I added a fence, but don't remember where I got it...I forgot to write it down.

  9. Hi! Copics are great. I am getting to buy some for the first time. What's your advice for me: which box should I buy just for starting? I saw there are a lot of colors and different boxes, and I am really confuse. Six colors are not so much, 72 are enough, but is it worth?. Thanks for showing your copics.
