Lenny Loader

Here is Lenny Loader:
The inside of the card reads: Hope you have LOADS of fun on your special day. Happy Birthday!

I'm a week behind with my Sunshine's digital image release. Last week Lenny Loader was released. This is a great image for boys b-days, invitations, etc. With having two boys of my own I'm sure I'll find lots of use for it in the future.

Sunshine's link can be found on my right side bar. Check her out for some great talent.

So last week I purchased the Bic Mark It markers. I have been discouraged with my supply of Copics and unfortunately my finances have not allowed me to make a large investment in them. At a shoebox swap I attended one of the girls had the Bic markers. I gave them a try and surprisingly was pleased with them. So after doing some research I discovered that you could purchase a box of 36 for around $11-15. Tonight was my first time giving them a go with Lenny Loader. I'm happy with the large range of colors this pack offers. I have 7 different shades of green, 5 different shades of blue, 4 different shades of purple, etc. It's great!! I purchased mine from Staples for about $12. They are definitely worth the small investment. Of course nothing out beats my Copics and Prismas but these are a great substitute.

What a great fun card! I haven't tried Bic-It markers yet. I know what you mean about Copics - so expensive so I ended going with prismacolor pencils instead.

i LOVE the bic markers too, i have one copic and it's lavender... so all my pen/marker coloring is done with the bics! i have to get a new set though, my boys took some of the colors to make their own cards and once they get their hands on things, it's gone for good!!
