Barbara, I saw you were talking about copics, check out Flourishes.com. They sell sets of 3/$15.00 and 4/$20.00. They are co-ordinating colors (light to dark) in the set. They also have some fantastic paper for coloring on the copics for cheap!!
Hey my daughter has the copic markers and I love them! I borrow hers...I took a Copic 101 class too and it was fun. I would love to get certified...but I probably should buy my own markers first. I keep going back to my colored pencils. Copics are great, although they do take a lot of practice!
So funny! I am on so many of these sites. I only have enough time to really check out one, though...Splitcoast these days...although I may start spending more time on Paper Craft Planet....I dont have enough time!! haha!
