My Happy Rainbow

Photobucket

Those of you that know me well know just how much I love color. This love affair has gone back as far as when I was a little girl and had rainbow sheets and lavender walls! (Please don't judge ;))

I adore color in my clothes, accessories, scrapbook pages and more. I can't get enough of happy rainbows of color so you can imagine how absolutely over-the-moon excited I was to be contacted by BIC and asked if I was interested in reviewing their new 36-color-set of ultra fine point permanent markers. Um, YES!

But I truly wasn't prepared for the package when it arrived just a couple of days later. First, the array of colors was just incredible. There was everything from the palest salmon pinks to the deepest plums and everything in between. I couldn't get over the variety of colors that I had never seen in a permanent marker set. When I finally got myself to open them (I love pretty packages), I was really impressed with the the opacity and fluidity of the color as well. The light colors, while very light and soft, were also considerably opaque. While I wouldn't use the lightest shades to write on dark cardstock, they were still bold enough to be seen clearly on any lighter shade you might want to use. I also tested them on textured cardstock because that's what I use most often both in scrapbooking and cardmaking. The BIC pens were much more fluid than I could have imagined for a permanent marker and because the tips are fine there was no skipping! How great, right?!

But it just gets better. As in love with this new happy rainbow of color *I* am, one of you can be as well! BIC has generously agreed to give away a set of 36 markers just like the one I have to one of my lucky readers because they know just how fabulous you are, too!

So here's how you can get in on this: Leave me a comment on what makes YOU happy as well as what pen color you'd like to see and you can be entered to win! Entries will be accepted until 11:59 PM Eastern time WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 6th! So get in on this while you can!

Have a colorful day!

Family is what makes me HAPPY!!! Without my family life just wouldn't be!

As for what color I would like to see? hmmm i don't know if they have a set of skin color pen/markers... that would be nice to have in just a small set.

Thanks for the chance!

Megan A. said...

scrapbooking makes me happy! what color would I like? I would like a variety of browns. I use brown all the time, but sometimes dark brown is too dark. I don't mean tan, that would be too light, but in between.

wendyp said...

Karen said...

Laura T. said...

Quiet time makes me happy! Those pens are GORGEOUS!! I love blues ... any blue.

Deanna said...

a clean house makes me happy! Unfortunately, it's not like that most the time. Those pens would make me happy too! I'd love to see a magenta or hot pink pen color because I tend to need one more often than I thought.

Holly Denghel said...

Ooooh ... I admit, I have a bit of a marker fetish. i hadn't seen these yet!! Must buy.

Question ... how well do they work on transparencies or see-through vellum?

Hanna Long said...

My kids and my DH make me happy. Without them, I would have nothing. I love the smiles on their faces, hearing their laughter. hmmm... colors? I have to choose? LOL I use brown alot, so I have to say different shades of brown. But I love greens and blues as well.

Ilona said...

camping with my hubby & kids makes me really happy. we just bought a camper this summer and I love it. I would like to see the red pen. Hate when my pens skip, will have to get me some of these (if I don't win a set from you he-he)

I love pens. I have a problem with them, I think.


My favorite color is pink, but not like barbie pink. A grown up sophisticated pink, so that's the pen color I'd like to see! :)

As for what makes me happy? FALL WEATHER. With sweaters, hot apple cider, and candy corn. Yes!

Priya said...

paper makes me happy! i love writing, doodling, whatever-ing on stacks of paper! i totally get what you mean about loving color! <3 would love to receive this set! thanks!!!

Leesa said...

Oooh! I have not seen these markers yet, but I'm already in LOVE!!!

Quiet time makes me happy. I love spending my days with my boys, but once they are in bed for a nap or bed... I am gloriously happy!

I am going with some previous posters and saying that a good white permanent marker would be fantastic!!!

bakscrap said...

Funny, I was just commenting this morning on a pastellayout I recently completed. I never like tham as well as the brighter or higher contrast layouts. The markers sound heavenly. I would like a good chocolaty brown marker. Thanks for the chance to win.

Sharla said...

Diet coke seems to always put a silly smile on my face!! (Weird, I know!) I love blues and greens, so anything in those colors are my favorites!

Laura - The Stampin' Soldier said...

Oh, you lucky girl! I love color too, but right now pumpkin patches are making me happy! I can't wait to get my little one in the patch with his new cute pumkin hat! In fact, that's the color marker I'd like to see too!!! :-)

Cynthia B. said...

When my family is happy, I'm the happiest. Their smiles fill me with joy. :)
As for these markers - I actually just bought a smaller set of Bic Mark-it's a little while ago. Great quality, and ultra-fine too!! The writing markers I use most are white, brown, and olive green. I'd love to see a white pen that's more consistent, and a lighter shade of brown and olive would be great.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Elisa K said...

Me time makes me happy, but then I get excited when the kids are about to walk in the door. LOL

I love greens but my favorite color is a apple green or leafy green.

April said...

Lan said...

My three kids make me happy...even when they are naughty and pouting! I love the color red paired with chocolate browns. Sooo ready for fall to arrive.

Sara Bakken said...

Meeting Kelly Goree at MOA Scrapfest made me reeeeally happy! As far as everyday stuff, cozy fleece blankets and hot chocolate make me happy!
And maybe they could add to their set an extra *used alot* color, like 2 blacks, 2 browns, etc., cause it looks like they covered the spectrum! Hey Kelly, I had every wall a different color pastel when I was a young girl!

Jennifer Moore said...

Music makes me happy! There's nothing like a good song to get me smiling and changing my mood. :) These colors look INCREDIBLE. I would love to see a good, bold white pen.

goatesgirl said...

my kids make me happy...this pen collection looks amazing but I would also really like to see a ultra fine tip permanent marker that is a glitter pen..now how great would that be??

Stephanie said...

Family, music and downtime make me happy!

Color...I would have to say a good brown. It is usually my go to color for journaling.

A little down time always makes me happy - especially when it involves playing with paper! And I am always looking for some nice brown shades in pens.

Wow, what a gorgeous set of pens. My favorite colors are purple, orange, and apple green. But the most "usable" basic pen colors I'd like to see is a nice deep chocolate brown and a dark charcoal grey.

LisaSoares said...

Scrapbooking makes me happy...actually, being creative in any way makes me happy. I love black and white as a combo and bright colors (hot pink was my favourite colour as a child). In fact today I just did a layout with bright pinks and greens and turquoise and posted it on my blog, then noticed your post right after that about colour!

What makes me happy? Spending time with family & friends, being creative, and loving on my babies! A neat color to see would be a light colored robin egg blue....

Cindy d said...

Those look amazing! Thanks for a great review. What makes me happy... is pens! Seriously. My family jokes because I ALWAYS put pens on my Christmas list. They don't understand why anyone who owns hundreds of pens would want more.

Tarren said...

It's so hard to pick one thing that makes me happy. I've been very creative lately, so of course scrapbooking, photography and my writing are on that list. Chocolate makes me happy! I'd love to see the fuschia type color, sine the darker pinks are some of my favorite colors. But I've been leaning more towards greens and blues lately, as well. They are all beautiful!

LG said...

that is awesome! I would love to get me some of those

Lisa said...

What makes me happy? Watching my kids look at their scrapbooks I've created. They will pull out an old one and appreciate what I've done for them :) The colors that make me happy are pinks and purples.

Sara said...

My kids make me happy (they also make me want to tear my hair out sometimes!) :) And I'd love a teal marker - so hard to find!

Chrissy said...

I love when my lss gets new papers and embellies in :-) As far as colors go I am a blue and brown girl. I love these!!

cheepincharge said...

What makes me happy?...spending time with my grandson! Who knew that being a grandmother would include bugs, sweat and dirt? I cherish every moment.

So maybe a nice in-between brown would be good?

djp said...

sunny fall days make me happy! So does cerulean (that crayola color!) thanks for the chance to win!

My family makes me happy!

I would love a decent white pen. One that I can use more than once before it dries up, that isn't gloppy or skippy.

shelby valadez said...

these are so cool! I would love to see a pretty purple color. Most purple pens are either too dark or too light for journaling

Lisa said...

What makes me happy....sunny fall days, and the schnauzer snuggling on my lap.

What color? Blue! All shades of blue!

Heather said...

Crunchy fall leaves, fresh apple cider, and hayrides... and pretty much anything Autumn-related... make me happy!

kim said...

Paper makes me happy! I could doodle all day. I've always used black or blue black to do my sketches in but I would love to see them in a salmon or lime green! Mmmm mmm! Thanks for the opportunity to win these markers! They are delicious!

Listening to fun 1970s music makes me happy. I sing along loudly and badly and just feel young and happy.

ekw721 said...

Sounds kinda outlandish, but classic cars. Something about their lines and the colors that when I see one it is butterflies in the stomach.

ekw721 said...

My family makes me happy, a good book makes me happy and scrapbooking makes me happy. I also LOVE a good pen and when I find that special one, I hide it from everyone so only I get to use it. I can't imagine having 36 special pens - maybe I could share...or maybe NOT! Any shade of pink is great!

I think happiness can be found wherever you choose to look. My family, my work, my scrapping... basically my life makes me happy :) These pens look fantastic. I would love to see the blues and greens as I struggle to find the perfect journaling colours for pages of my son.

Starting something new always makes me happy. What makes me happier is being able to finish it!

I'd love to find a nice deep brown pen, but my favourite colours are all shades of purple, and aqua/teal.

Being with my family and sharing yummy food makes me the happiest!!

I absolutely ADORE purple in any shade!
