My first copics!

I have been saying that I really really wanted some, so finally yesterday I took the plunge! I was given a gift card by my Bible study girlfriends, so I used that to purchase a half a dozen markers to give 'em a whirl and see what all the buzz is about. You can tell that I really don't know what I'm doing yet, but I'm having a good time tryin'!

This little fella is one of the cute mini stamps that were recently added to the inventory at Treehouse Stamps. He just cracks me up! Love that Basic Grey dp too!

On another note...today is Epiphany, and in our household that means King Cake! I've got one started already, although this picture is the one I made last year, along with last year's Epiphany cards (made in lieu of Christmas cards). You can tell it is one ooey gooey sugary concoction! There is a lot of history and symbolism behind this tradition. If you're interested in learning more, let me know in your comment and I'll send you the recipe and some interesting folklore.

Epiphany is all about Light and enlightenment. I love the thought that when the light shines, that which would be hidden is revealed, and that the light always overcomes the darkness. What fabulous imagery our God gives us to help us understand His ways and His Word! Epiphany blessings!


  1. What an adorable card!! Love that image too! :) The king cake looks so yummy!! TFS!

  2. Congrats on your first Copics. Looks like you did great with them! We are doing role reversal today: you posted your first Copics and I posted my first watercolor! Ha!

  3. So cute, Deb! Once you use the copics (and get used to them) you will wonder how you ever lived without them!! LOVE mine!!

    Love the king cake too...I have thought of you off and on today...can you please sent me a piece! LOL!! I still have your recipe...one of these years I will make one my self! :)

  4. yeah, I thouht I recognized that card! Good luck with the copics. I got a gift card that I need to use too. I'm thinking either Bind it all or Scor Pal...
