Copics vs Prismas

Well I had a problem over the past few days. Whether to keep my prisma pencils or buy a new set of copics. I have been wanting Copics for a long time but of course the price just stops me right in my tracks. I bought my Prismas a few months ago at Michaels and even then I waited for a 50% off coupon. So now I had a dilemma. To keep my Prismas or buy new Copics. Here was my problem. I dont really enjoy coloring with my Prismas. I have yet to master the shading with my gamsol. But then again I here from so many people that it takes awhile to master Copics as well. So ultimately I decided to keep my Prismas and get together with a good friend Jodi (kharmagirl on SCS) and have her give me a tip or two on Prisma use. What would u have done? What is your opinion? Copics or Prismas and why?

Well here are a few cards that I made over the past day or two. I hope you enjoy them. Thanks so much for stopping by

This card was made with an embellishment from KandCompany.
The DP is also KandCompany
Sentiment is Stamping Bell
Everything else is SU

This card was made with SU Always set and embossed with Clear EP.
All Cardstock is SU
Hodgepodge Hardware is SU and so is the ribbon

This was my Sketch Challenge for last week. I finally entered a challenge. I always mean to do it and always get sidetracked with something else. This is SC186 on SCS.

All Card Stock is SU
DP is from sale rack at Michaels
Stamp is Lizzie Ann Designs

Thanks again for stopping by and taking a look at everything!!

I have yet to get around to doing alot of challenges. Like on SCS and on other sites. But this card that I made for a friends challenge I just had to do because I love butterflies and the theme was easy for me. If you are interested here is the link to her site.

Anyway. This card was made with mostly SU items except for the sentiment. The background was stamped with versamark and then clear embossed. I cut out the panels with my nesties and also stamped with vesamark and then used white EP. All cardstock is SU and butterflies are from Merci and Love without End. Hope you like it. Thanks for coming by.

Woo-Hoo I actually figured out how to put this header on this blog!!! Thank goodness for Google tutorials. I am not sure if I love it or not but atleast I get the idea of what I need to do so I can change it up if need be.

So good news. My friend Loreen over at Wish on a Scrap is offering up some Blog Candy. Just go and enter a comment on her blog and mention her on your blog. Easy Peasy.

Okay my card for the day (actually yesterday) started out to be the SC Sketch Challenge for the week but I just got all off course and this is what I came up with. I hope you like it.

Okay so I figured I better jump on the crafting blog bandwaggon. So here it goes. I have always been really good at submitting my gallery on Splitcoast but I guess now I need to go one step further and do the blog thing too. If anyone wants to see my gallery already posted on Splitcoast I am listed under annk516
Here are a few of my latest cards that I have worked on. Let me know what you think.

This is Best Friends Forevah by Stamping Bella

This stamp is an adorable stamp from Paper Pretties called Bunny Slippers.

This last card I made in both blue and pink but I will only post the pink one. It is made with Stampin Bellas Bella Baby Buggy Bumper Stamp. It is such a cute stamp. Thanks for looking everyone!!
