A Copic Welcome and Give-away

The Copic Papercrafting Instructor and Design Teams would like to give a colorful “WELCOME” to the newest instructor joining us… Michelle Houghton!

Michelle has done a number of special events and demos for us over the years and we are thrilled to finally have her on our teaching team.  Michelle has a BS in Fine Arts and an MA in Teaching with years of experience teaching high school art, live workshops and online crafting classes.  We look forward to working with her and can’t wait to see her in action!

We can’t have a celebration without gifts, so we are giving away some great Copic prizes!

Join us in welcoming Michelle by visiting each of the blogs listed below for a chance to win.  Don’t forget to leave some love at each blog because EACH TEAM MEMBER will be giving away a Copic T-Shirt and a 7-piece Doodle Kit to one lucky winner.

Commenting will close at midnight on Sunday, July 6th and winners announced on individual blogs on Monday, July 7th.

Of course I can’t post a giveaway without featuring a Copic card.    🙂  Today I’ve used Sunflower Sweetheart from My Favorite Things.  All stamping was done on X-Press It Blending Card and, of course, colored with Copic markers.

The girl and flowers were die-cut and raised on foam tape.

Inside,  I stamped a second sentiment and added a sun and flower.

Here are your links for the hop.  Don’t forget to stop at each one and comment for your chance to win!

Good luck!
