Cuppa anyone?

Hi there, I'm here to show you my latest card for Mad For Markers and I have used the sweet Emily who is available at the Mad for Markers Online Store.  My inspiration came from the fabulous ribbon that arrived this morning as part of a prize from The Ribbon Reel, wow they have so much awesome ribbon!  Anyway I just had to use it and thought it TEAmed up perfectly with this image which has been coloured with my copics.  I tried a new red combo that was shared over at the Mad For Markers Online Copic Colouring Club check out the details HERE, a great place to be for all you copic lovers.  My papers are EP Times & Seasons also added some seam binding, flower, button and gems from my stash.

Anything Goes at A&T Sketch Challenges

Yes that's right a challenge we all love - 'Anything Goes' over at the A&T Sketch Challenge Blog this for fortnight.  For my card I used a fairly new release called 'bunch of roses' which is available at the A&T Digital Designs Store. I used my copics to colour, paper is from Bearly Mine Designs the little whit roses are actually made of clay (or something similar) then I added some flowers from my stash behind them and finished off with a piece of lace. I have kept this simple as I intend to use it as a sympathy card (I find them really difficult to make but I think this one works)









I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Totally Gorjuss #144 ~ Lacy Lacey
Stampin' for the Weekend #15 ~ Monochromatic
OSAAT #126 ~ Anything Goes

Feeling a little blue?

Well its the time of the week for my creation for Mad For Markers and this week I have used the utterly adorable Mr Doll from the Doggies digital collection which is available at the Mad For Markers Online Store, I think this is probably my favourite of the Doggies Collection.  This time I went for something a bit different for me and actually coloured Mr Doll in a non-dog colour!  It felt really strange while I was doing it but I do love how it turned out.  So the copics I used for this were B39, 93, 95, 97 & BG10, I added the sentiment before I printed it out then cut it out using a nestie.  The pp are from the Papermania Happy Days collection as is the little ticket sentiment and from my stash I have added blue cs, sparkly flower and sparkly fabric heart.  There is also a new challenge over at the Mad For Markers Challenge Blog which is a nice easy one 'Anything Goes' (using copics of course!) so why not check it out?
