CMC Celebrates Birthday Bash!

It's All about the Accessories!  

Starting March 19th thru March 24th the CMC Classroom will have its 2nd Birthday Bash HERE!  There will will be  a full schedule of events for all the games, challenges, chats & prizes starting March 17th!  So mark your calendars for a week full of fun!!


For my Birthday Bash card, I selected this adorable little image from Mo Manning called  "It's All About the Accessories".   I just think Spike is adorable.    He is all fixed up and ready to celebrate!



I had fun doodling on the image and getting him all accessorized for the Big Bash!
Doesn't he look Dapper?
He's posing 
just for
 you. 



Party Animal!   Happy Birthday CMC!

It is hard to believe that CMC is 2 years old!   I started taking my first Copic class two years ago - and it truly has been terrific.   Our Boss Lady is Suzanne Dean and she is a fabulous instructor and a great friend.    She's funny  and a pure delight to know. I  am super proud to be able to say I have served on Suzanne's  Design Team from the beginning and still going strong!   (Big Smile)!

Suzanne Dean

Suzanne's Copic classes  started out as a Copic class -----  Then it quickly expanded to many fabulous classes on Copics,  Prisma Pencils, Magnolia images, and Distress Ink.  She has an active, fulfilled biweekly challenge that is open to everyone using Copics, Alcohol Ink Markers and/or Colored  Pencils.   Our Challenge group is a crazy bunch but the discussions are lively and we truly enjoy each other.
