Happy Friday Eve!!!!

Hey there! Well, I had megahugephenomenal plans to spend at least one entire day crafting during the long holiday weekend! And as usual, my beautiful plans were derailed by children who had other plans for me! Booo! So anyway, it has taken me 5 days to finish this little birthday card! I'm excited because I actually purchased my first ever Copic markers during a sale at Michael's last weekend even though i debated long and hard about returning them because they are so pricy and even with the sale I spent a ridiculous amount on "just markers"!  But oh well, I'm over it and just plan to add to them slowly by using the 50% coupons at Michaels! Oh so of course I have a lot to learn and first on my list is to invest in some Momento ink and higher quality paper so I won't have the ink bleeding and whatnot! Oh well, I still had fun playing and hope my little cousin will know that this was made with love! She's 6 so I'm sure she won't care that there are streaks, colors are bleeding, and that my shading and shadows are off, right? LOL!
