Mad for Markers blog hop

Good morning Copic Lovers, Today we are having our first ever blog hop.

If you came from Rach's blog you are right on track but if not please go start the hop from the Mad for Markers blog :D

Firstly we would like to say a HUGE THANKS to the departing Design team ladies…
Sue, Louise and Tracy have been wonderful members of our team and it’s with sadness that we say farewell! Please pop by their blogs and give them some love and lots of Thanks for all the gorgeous inspiration they’ve shared with us all using Copic markers! It was wonderful having Sue (my buddy from my first DT spot) on the team and I am looking forward to staying in touch .. Lou and Tracy helped me to get selling to NZ (THANKS) and I loved getting to know you both - yep.. I'll be stalking you girls too!!

We would also like to give a very warm welcome to the new team and are so very excited to have them on board…. You are going to love seeing their work which of course you will see today as you are hopping…. you can also take a little detour to read more about the new team HERE!

Another fun bit of news is that we now have a separate challenge blog – as of today (you will finish the hop there!) We have lots of FUN things in store for you here on the existing blog (stay tuned) and we have some great challenges lined up for you on the new Mad for Markers challenge blog ... with daily inspiration coming from our wonderful new team!

Make sure to leave all the Girls some love along the way and become a follower of the new challenge blog to be in the running to win a Prize Pack, which consists of 3 Copics, 1 multiliner, a small pack of Neenah and XPress It blending card, plus a small sheet of X Press It Mask It Paper. There will also be a couple of random winners chosen along the way.

That's enough chattering from me .. Here is a little project I have to share with you ..

OK.. a bit more rambling about my card... I have used a Miss Anya Lounge image from The Greeting Farm -- I bought mine from Marcia at The Stamp Spot. The gorgeous tree + grass are embellishments from Flourish with a Bling (Thanks to the very lovely Lucy for that!) I am now stocking some of their embellishments in my store :D The butterflies are chipboard from my LSS - All about Scrapbooks - I coloured them with Copics and then Spica (Thanks Rach for that tip!)
And the colours I used are: Skin: E000, E00, E11, R11, Hair: E30, 31, 33, 35, 15, 13, Jacket: R22, 24, 27, 29, Skirt/ boots: V12, 15, 17 socks: B000, C1, 0
