Summertime, Sunflowers and FREE Copic Certification! Oh My!

Have you ever thought about getting Copic Certified? Here is your chance!!



We teaming up with Copic to giveaway one seat at the Copic Certification Class on Sunday, June 14th, hosted by Stamping Memories in Belmont, NH. Yes, that says "Give Away". As in FREE. The class -- the "LAST CHANCE New England Class" is an all-day event that will teach you the ins-and outs of working with these fabulous color tools. In order to enter the giveaway, email Sally Lynn MacDonald, instructor extraordinaire (click on her name to open an email). Let her know that you would like to enter this drawing from my blog.This class has a $120.00 value!!! *Note that this giveaway is for the class only -- transportation and lodging are not included*

I LOVE my Copics! Taking this class and becoming certified was a HUGE confidence booster -- plus I learned more than I could have imagined about Copics, what they can do and how to work with them effectively. Whether or not you win the giveaway, YOU should become certified, too!

Did I mention that this is a $120.00 value? Email Sally Lynn today!! One lucky winner will be drawn on Wednesday, June 10th. NOTE: Unlike other giveaways I conduct, comments left on MY blog will not be valid entries into the Copic drawing -- you MUST email Sally Lynn. Of course, you are welcome to leave a comment, just know that it does not qualify you for entry.

Now for a little eye candy:Since today happens to be Friday -- Blogger's Challenge day -- and today's BC is to post a summer-themed item, I thought this pretty sunflower from Two Nancy's Art Stamps would do just right! My sunflower, which uses the Out of the Box technique (October 2004 TJNL) was colored with Copics, of course. I layered my sunflower on a Double Bugged Background (technique from the June 2009 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter). I love that you can Double Bug bold, or Double Bug subtle. I think the subtly works here, don't you?

In any case, make sure to email Sally Lynn MacDonald to enter the giveaway for the free Copic Certification above. Good Luck!
