Happy Friday!

It's finally Friday!  Yay!!  I am super happy the weekend is here, but have plans to spend most of the weekend finishing a big school project that is due next week (insert big sigh here!).  And after that I'll have no schoolwork for a while (even bigger YAY!).

I thought I'd share a card I made a while back but never posted, down below.  I worked hard on my Copic shading on this one, and like how it came out.  I'm looking at taking the Copic intermediate course, and am wondering if any of you have taken it and what your feedback is???  ie. did you find it worthwhile?  I'd love to read your comments if you have taken it....since of course(!) I'm wondering if I want to spend $200 on another course, or buying more markers LOL!

Anyway, another thing I wanted to do today was give a huge shout out thank you to Laurie (Doodle Pantry) for the fabulous watermarks she's made me in the past and now made for my mom, she is just so nice and does such great stuff...totally recommend her if you need a custom made graphic for labels or a watermark.

Oh yes, and instructions for the card--all stamps from Heartfelt Creations:
