    Hi Mary,

    I emailed you a couple of times about winning the huge 2-year anniversary challenge. Can you email me please at lala3237 at verizon dot net? Thanks so much!

    I see that pencils can be used – does this mean Copic pencils? I do not own anything Copic yet (although I adore them from afar!!), so would I still be eligible to play for the prizes? I completely understand if only Copic use is acceptable 🙂
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Copics girlies!
    Fab challenge — just LOVE doodling and Penny Black’s are one of my all-time favourite stamps!
    It was no hardship to join the club and took only seconds – there’s no obligation to buy either although that won’t stop me…! LOL!
    Super demo’s ladies – you’re a talented lot!

    …err, I think that your WordPress pop up might be putting off some commenters – it’s like the face-book ones and asks for all sorts of info and some peeps might not realize that you can still comment if you hit ‘don’t allow’ button.
    Jist to let you know…
