That's funny!  We got our girl when she was three months old too.  The darlin' will be 13 next month and suffers with arthritis so badly.  Don't know what I'll do when she's gone. (I'm the reason she thinks she's human  LOL)

Tracy, We are so happy to have you. This is the place to be if you want to learn more about copics any questions just ask. Suzanne offers some wonderful classes. Everyone here are crazy about their copic as well. We had a lad for 15 years and her was a part of our family also. Hard to let go her was raised up with my boys got him when he was 3 months old and my boys where small now all grown up married with kids. Glad you are with us.

Thanks for the warm welcome Patricia!  I started out on the web making scrapbook mini albums and tutorials on YouTube.  One of my scrappy friends decided to start a card challenge blog and asked me to join the DT--the rest is history.  I was totally in love with making cards!  I still make minis but am such a perfectionist they take me forever.  LOL  I can make a card a lot faster.  :-)  I got my first set of Copics for Christmas last year and I am totally obssessed with them.  Lots more to learn, but I sure am enjoying the journey.  I'm a Mississippi girl with an amazing husband, daughter, and a lab who thinks she's human.  :-)  Looking forward to joining in the fun here.  :-)

I love looking at all of the fall cards the colors are gorgeous.  I am afraid we won't be feeling the fall weather until December here in Texas:)

Hazel, that has happened to me a lot lately.  I have to go out and come back in several times to get from one page to another or I get that blank page.
Comment by Hazel Parr on September 9, 2011 at 1:47pm
Yeah managed it!!!
Comment by Hazel Parr on September 9, 2011 at 1:43pm

I've just added an easel card to the challenge but I can't get into the gallery to add it there.  When I click on the gallery it just goes to a blank page.  I will try again later to add it, just wondered if anyone else was having the same problem?
