    I have really grown to love these little characters. Just waiting to receive an order for copics to start tying out the coloring techniques. They are precious.

    What a great challenge blog. I have only just purchased some copics so hopefully this will be the first of many copic challenges I will do. I love the tutorials which I find very useful and find it easy to adapt with colours if I don’t have the colours that many use for certain things!

    Oh my, what beautiful cards everyone has made. I am learning so much by reading and studing everyones techniques. This weeks BLONDE HAIR Challenge was the first time I ever really tried to creat blonde hair. I had not realized that there are so many different color combinations possible to make them blonde. Mine is a darker blonde. Maybe one day I will be able to create cards as beautiful as these. Thak you for having this challenge, I learned a lot.

    What a great challenge!! This was my first attempt at coloring Blond hair. Love the video tutorials…couldn’t do this without them.

    Great samples and inspirations. Thanks.

    Gorgeous cards. I’m glad I found you. I’ve put a card with Mr Linky x

    Love the samples. I’ll definitely be back for the tutorials. I posted my first challenge card and plan on completing more challenges in the future.

    I have got to go get busy and get a little blonde colored for this great challenge. I so wish I had a Magnolia stamp , guess I need to be lucky and win this challenge, to color but I have many other darling stamps that I can have fun with.
    Thanks for the challenge.

    I’m having a problem with Mr. Linky – it says File Not Found when I hoover over the link, then when I click on it a blank page comes up!

  13. May 21, 2009 8:05 pm

    I can’t get the Mr Linky to open again, so I can go look at everyone’s entries…I was able to add mine late this a.m. but now nothing comes up when I click….anybody know what’s wrong?

  14. May 21, 2009 10:29 pm

    Fun challenge! I’m looking forward to the next one. 🙂 I can’t get Mr. Linky to work. (It says “File Not Found”.) So, here’s my card: Tingla.

    Thank you so much for the SUPER video instruction! Each one is so helpful. Watching someone color with their Copics as well as listening to why they do what they do is SO valuable!

  16. May 22, 2009 10:12 pm

    Wow! What a fab blog! I’m so pleased I stumbled on it! I can’t believe the fab free tuts as well as a great challenge with Copics!
    I’d like to enter my card ‘Have Potty Will Travel…!’
    into the challenge. It’s my own stamp, Aida, based on my baby granddaughter.
    Thank you so much!
