Copic Creations Challenge ~ Reading!


Ahoy maties!    It’s August 1st and time for a new Copic Creations Challenge … finally!   We took the last two weeks off and it seems like it’s been forever since we’ve had a new challenge!!    This week we’ve teamed up with an amazing, award-winning author and children’s book illustrator ~ Elizabeth Dulemba

Elizabeth features a weekly newsletter that includes LOTS of adorable FREE reading images.   So I hope you will join us for this challenge.   We’re hoping to stress the importance of reading during the summer break for all those “bored” kids out there!      This free image is called Pirate Poetry and he’s been made into a book gift card holder for one of my grandsons. 



After a little research on the Internet, I found such fun sentiments for reading, that I HAD to make another READING project for our challenge, this time a book mark . . .



I’ll be back later today to add all the links and details on these two projects!   I just finished the post for the Copic Creations challenge and I’m pooped!    In the meantime, lots of details on this challenge can be found on the Copic Creations Challenge blog HERE


  1. what a fabulous card and I just love that book mark you made. Do you ever have a bad card day :).

  2. I love these both! My DD and DS both love pirates so I smiled when I saw your card, the quote on it is wonderful too :0)

    Mary, your bookmarks are so different from each other and I love them both! Beautiful coloring (as always!) and the style of each fits the image you used!
