When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Spectrum Noir

About two months ago somewhere in Ohio, I got the chance to buy all 12 of the Spectrum Noir 6-pen sets.  They were on sale at Pat Catan's, which only operates in 2 States - Ohio and Pennsylvania.  I was amazed with all the new stuff they have and the prices were really competitive as most online craft stores.

The other night, I used my new markers and colored the only stamped image that somehow got mixed-up with the supplies I mailed.  I was planning to make a card for several challenges but unfortunately, I don't have anything I can use for cardbase, let alone, to stamp an image... Ha! I got everything here except that LOL.  Anyways, here's showing you the colored image...

Image used is Penny Black.  So far I like the markers although you need to be very careful because the ink really runs or bleeds so much.  But blending is easy peasy. How I wish I could make a card out of this image...
On the side note, I got an email from Hallmark Scrapbook today and they're running a special on Spectrum Noir.  I was planning to buy all of the 4 - 24sets (Dark, Lights, Brights and Pastels/Total of 96markers) for $119 BUT... I dont think I will pay $18 for shipping.  Well, I sent a message to the owner asking if its possible to fit them all in one flat rate priority box so I can save a few bucks on the shipping...  if not, then I guess I'll just have to pass up the deal.

Have a happy election day!
