What a gorgeous day !!

Isn't this weather just gorgeous?.... not that i'm one for sitting in the sun but it definately has an uplifting effect :) I've had a lovely start to my day meeting up with my friend Michelle for a coffee and a browse round our local craft shop, it's so nice to have someone who totally understands and shares a passion for crafting...thank you Michelle :)

Well i'm safe to share this card with you now as i know Dawny P has recieved it :)
I used the sweet Dahlia stamp...i love the expression on her face...papers are BG Lime Rickey, Glitter adhesive ribbon by We Are Memory Keepers, sentiment is Hero Arts and Papermania flowers to finish

I just wanted to ask before i go, anyone that uses Copics, how do you store them ? I've only had mine for about 6 weeks but i've had 2 pens dry out !! I've stored mine flat in a pencil case, lids tightly on, but i've noticed a lot of ink around the rim of the lids? I'm wondering now if i should be storing them vertically...any advice would be appreciated :)

Enjoy your day everyone xx


  1. What a fresh and fun card. She's so pretty.
    The flowers framing the image are so sweet.
    Happy and fun. I love it.
    Sorry about your Copics. They shouldn't be doing that. I don't have any but I do know that something is just not right. They are pricey so I hope you get an answer. Can you email the shop where you purchased them and tell them what has happened?

    Have a great day,
    Take care,
