Please be sure to hop along to each of the Design Team Member’s blog, become a follower their blog if you aren’t already and answer the question correctly that they have posted to qualify for the giveaway.
My question is what are your thoughts on copics? are they worth the money or are other pens just as good and less expensive? My thought is I have tried literally every pen out there and so far nothing truly compares to copics and they are worth the money.

The giveaway includes:
Greetings on the Go Stamp Set
Birthday Wishes Stamp Set
Sizzix Embossing Folder set

They are pricey and not sure they are worth it. I don't use markers that much so do not have much to compare them to.

Copics are pricey but would be worth the money if I actually used mine very much. I don't color all that well so my copics usually just stay unused in their little storage box; I once took a Copics class which was money wasted because the instructor didn't know what she was doing either. So for people who color well and actually use their Copics, they are worth the money; for people like me, not such a good investment.

I have never used copics. But I have used the new stampin' UP! blendabilities and love them. I have heard that they are just like the copic markers but less money.

Haidee said...

Since I don't own Copics, I cannot answer if they are worth the cost. Perhaps someday, just not today! lol I have to say I love your cards. Thanks for sharing. Love ya' Patricia B

Sweet cards. I love my Copics and I do think they are worth the money. I have tried others and always come back to my Copics.

Cute projects! I love my copics and think they are worth every penny <3

Sandy Bradford said...

Great cards. The stitching on the one is awesome! l have copics but I've only used them a few times.. need more practice.

Teresa R said...

I do not own any copic markers yet, but I hope to do so in the near future

Brans said...

I love your cards this month! I used to own copics and decided I was not that into coloring. I like it but it is more of an art form. I would rather use a good marker or color pencil and do it. LOL

Marie Ross said...

Monica....I love your cards. My favorite set is Greetings on the go. It is so versatile.

Sue Frederickson said...

I have never tried Copic markers. I am new to stamping and may get brave enough to do some coloring someday.

Donna K said...

Such cute cards! Both are adorable, but those balloons are so precious! Love 'em. As for Copics...I like using them a lot. They are pricey but you can usually get a great deal with coupons or promotions. I'm not that great at coloring but they are well worth the money.
