Had to come check out your blog after seeing your cards on Splitcoast. WOWZA! I love your work. I just added you to my Google Reader so I won't miss anything. I'll be Copic Certified in July. Did you like the class?

I loved your swap card Maren and totally cased that layout for my Color Challenge card this morning. I walked into my craft room at 5:00 am this morning wanting to play but brain dead, then I saw your card and knew what to do ;) It was so fun seeing you!
