Copics to play with, Promarkers for Sale

Copics have arrived at Sir Stampalot

Good Morning everyone, well not so sure about the 'good' the weather is atrocious, windy, wet and decidedly wintry although it has stopped raining and there is a glimmer of sun, so fingers crossed. But as it's been too miserable to go out I have had the perfect opportunity to craft........and play with these........Sir Stampalot recently started stocking the entire range of both the Ciao and Sketch pens and I have have been poring over them since they arrived.

I did not intend buying them, well not just yet anyhow, but on Thursday when I arrived home from Stampalot, there sitting on my desk was a big brown bag.......yes the full set which my lovely hubby had bought unbeknown to me.......should I be worried about his little arrangements with Janice I wonder ? They were apparently intended for Christmas but he figured I could be making good use of them now. Isn't he lovely !

Yes I know, I only got Promarkers in September, but if I am honest I have hardly used them and most have yet to be opened. It's very much me and not the pens - my dexterity is not brilliant due to my MS and I often have difficulty writing in general and found the hard tips of Promarkers difficult to guide, whereas Copics have a soft tip and after a couple of days of play I do find them much much easier to work with.

So if anyone wants to invest in the full set of 144 nearly now Promarkers, most unused, mail me as I am sure we can sort something out - edited lunchtime Sunday - sold I am afraid.

A little sneak peek of what you will see on 5th December

Oh, I nearly forgot to tell you that as lots of you have suggested I do a tutorial on the roses I make, I can confirm it's in the making and should hit a blog near you later this week. And if you want to see them made in the 'flesh' I will be showing you how at the big demo day at Stampalot on 5th December - mark it in your diaries, if last year is anything to go by it will be a fantastic day - more details and sneak peeks later in the month.

We need to treasure our Hubbys don't we Brenda. You sound like you've got a good 'un there. Mine's bought me The Slice for my 40th next year, but I've got to wait a few more months to play with it!!
Enjoy your Copics.

Hi Brenda,
What a lovely thing for your hubby to do.
My vote is for Copics over Promarkers, I couldn't resist buying some Promarkers (I got the 56 new colours), now I want to sell them and add to my Copic collection instead.
I hope all is well with you.
