Prizes this weekend

Want another chance at cool prizes?
I'm still celebrating my Blogsiversary so be on the lookout for cool blog prizes all weekend long.

YOu still have a chance to win the marker set on Sharon Harnist's site.

Hop on over there, then for the new prize today check out Michelle Wooderson for a really neat giveaway! You'll have to go see what it is, I won't spill the beans.

Saturday, head over to Debbie Olson for another chance to win something cool.

Then Monday you can come back here and see what neat things I have in store for you. Trust Me...You don't want to miss this :)

Congratulations to the winner from Sally Lynn's prize drawing of a set of Glitter pens...
Michaela

Also, thank you for all the fun comments on so many blogs about the cute Kona the Turtle set I drew for Joy and Daisy over at eP. I must say, I absolutely LOVE being able to share my little doodles with everyone and bring smiles to faces of people I don't know.

Here is a closeup of a second version of yesterday's image of Kona. I wanted this one to look wet, so I took a fine toothpick and very lightly added tiny specks of white over my image to look like shiny light reflecting off my turtle.

Have a rockin' weekend! See you monday :)

Oh, I forgot to mention, If you are in the Dallas, TX area this weekend and visiting the Anime show, A-Kon, go and check out the Copic Booth. There will be coloring workshops by Ryan Weber, a fabulous charicaturist. So check it out and buy some markers!

I am loving your site. I am learning so much about copics. Do you prefer copic original or sketch?

Hi,
I'm pretty new to stamping and very new to copics. I'm still trying to figure things out. I'm try to make the things I color look like what I see on the Blog, but I've got a long way to go. I'd love to see a step by step coloring of a stamp showing what markers are used at each step. Thanks for all the info in your blog. It's Great!
