How lucky am I?

Look what my extremely kind Hubby got me!!!!!
I have been mulling over Copics for ages now and finally gave into temptation last week after continually seeing more and more amazing creations using them. Well as we do i very subtly dropped a few hints what i would like for Christmas which included Copics and i knew that there was at least 4 set's of Nesties which i really wanted so i thought nothing else of it. Anyway Ryan later said well if you like you can have them now as an early Christmas present and told me to order them. Now this was tricky because where do you start with colours, markers, sketchers and so on when you are a total beginner??? Well my good friend and DT sister emailed me some fab info and advice with what she thought was a good starting point and everything else i needed to know :) I was sorted and about to order my set of 36 (a) Copics when my oh so lovely Hubby came behind my shoulder and said 'why don't you order the set of 72'!!!!! Well what could i say after all it will probably save money in the long run because i know if i had ordered the set of 36 i would still be wanting to order a few more colours. Now you may think I've been a wee bit greedy but I'm not usually and he did offer! lol Then to top my day off he went and got me the set of 4 nesties ........how sweet??? So that's me very happily sorted for Christmas. The hardest part was to take them out of their wrapper and actually try them out. I did eventually and WOW are they fabulous or what but I'm not familiar with markers at all and don't really do much shadowing when i use my Coloursofts so I know i have a steep learning curve ahead but i will say they look worth every penny :) If you want a laugh then check back tomorrow for my 1st creation using them! lol
