I’ve got some cool Copic news and a giveaway today! But, first, this is a card that was recently published in CardMaker’s Sketch Book: Christmas Celebration. I love this gnome image from Kim Hughes‘ set, Forest Friendzy. He’s colored with Copic Markers (YG93,YG95, R59, E31, E34, E00, E02 andW1). This Sketch Book is a great idea resource with tons of beautiful samples. I was very excited to be a part of the book.
I’m posting really late this evening. I’m usually up late, but tonight I returned home from a few days of meetings at Copic’s North American headquarters, Imagination International Inc. (Triple I, as Marianne likes to call it!) Great discussions, good friends, a visit to the warehouse to see all those markers and an opportunity to meet the wonderful folks that work so hard at Copic, including the ROCKSTARS who focus on packing orders and shipping product. (Debbie has a few pictures. :)) Many thanks to the wonderful staff for their warm hospitality.
On with the announcements, right? Copic is excited to announce their 2010 Blog Team, as well as Regional Copic Certification Instructors.

There will be 2 ways to win:
1. One winner from each blog will be randomly chosen.
