    This is my first time trying a challenge here. I linked my card above. The DT samples are just amazing! Great tutorials, too! Thanks for the wonderful inspiration!

    I’m so glad I found your blog – it’s fabulous! Beautiful samples! I in no way lived up to them – I found these irises difficult to color – but it was good for me! And my dad requested an iris card for my stepmom’s birthday so this was a timely challenge. It’s not up on my blog yet since I don’t want her to see it, so I just linked to my SCS gallery. I will definitely be back for more challenges!

    Thanks for this challenge and it truly was one for me. Oh my goodness you don’t know how hard this challenge was for me. I have only been collecting copic markers for about 2 months and only have 1 true purple. I did manage though with the help of a couple sharpie makers and everything else is copic.

    So happy to find this blog! It gave me a great excuse to play with my Copics. Here’s my take.

    Loved all the samples and the tutorials!

    Yikes, I almost forgot to link my card I made last week! This was a great challenge as Lilacs are my favorite flower! Mine are all in bloom and smelling divine right now. The DT cards are fantastic and a great inspiration!

    This was fun and the samples are really beautiful. Thank you. It gave me a chance to try something new.

    I uploaded my card and linked it above, but I must say…I had THE hardest time with this one. I think my mojo has left me and way too many other issues to even go into…but it’s uploaded and I’m off to bed.

    Good luck to everyone who posted cards!! :o)
