Mad for Markers Blog Challenge

I'm back and have decided to start off by doing the Mad for Markers blog challenge. The challenge is to use Green and Yellow Green Copic Markers.
I have always enjoyed colouring and have now added Copics to my repertoire.These gorgeous markers are new to me and I am still learning ( I teach myself ) it can be hit and miss sometimes but I am very happy with the result so far.
For this card I have used an image from Sweet Pea Stamps, all card stock is by Bazzill and a scrap of Japanese Paper I found in my stash.
The sentiment is from Stamp It
Copics used
E50, E51, E11, E55, E57
YG03,YG11, YG94, YG97, G21
T1, T3, T6, B02, B93, B95, R29

Until Next Time

I will be back soon

Hello, I will be back in about 4 weeks.
I have spent the last 6 months living in a bedroom at friends place, she has been so fantastic ( as have all my friends been) since my husband left me after 21 years. I truly am blessed to have such special friends in my life. The downside is all my stamping supplies have been in storage and little to no card making has been achieved.
Now things are moving full speed ahead, I have purchased a little cottage that needs a little work and then I can move in, unpack my supplies and get back to crafting.
So come back towards the end of March and see what I've been up to.
Hugs M

Annabelle Stamps August Releases

Hello everyone, I have made a couple of cards for the August releases from Annabelle Stamps.
Don't forget to check out what the rest of the design team have been up to, you may even win your self a new set.
the first set is called 'Thoughtful Stems'

Sympathy cards are hard to make but I found this set made it easy, the slightly different options in sentiments is also good. here is my card

the second set for august is called 'Party Animals 2'. This is so adorable you can't help but fall in love with it.I had so much fun making this card and it is just fabulous to colour. I chose my paper from Basic Grey and then cardstock to match. I coloured with my trusty Prismacolor Pencils blended with odourless mineral spirits.
There is another new release out tomorrow, i wont be ready but drop by the girls blogs and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win. Just click on the names below.
Andrea, Kylie, Teresa, Jerusha, Sue, Ida, Rene, Tiffany

I need some time

This is the first time I have done a personal post, my posts are always about cards and my craft. I thought I would let my followers and friends know what is going on in my life.
In the last 3 months my life had a very abrupt change. Most of you were somewhat aware I went into hospital, I spent 6 weeks (yes weeks, not days) in hospital as I was very unwell. A couple of days after I got out of hospital my husband asked me for a divorce.
Since that day about 6 weeks ago, my home has been for sale and we have dealt with real estates and lawyers. I had to pack up 1/2 my craft room so it looked at least a little neat and tidy and we have had several viewings for potential buyers ( thus the reason for a neat and tidy stamp room). I have also been out and about looking for a new place to live. The rest of my week consists of medical appointments, lawyer appointments, appointments dealing with all the Government Agencies and filling out their paperwork ( I'm sure some of the forms were the same only they call them different names, probably trying to trick you into making a mistake. If it wasn't so annoying It would probably be funny.)
My husband and my teenage Son are packing up to leave next week and I too have started to pack up. I have about 5 weeks until I have to be out. We were married for 21 years so there is alot of stuff to go through.
As you can see I have a lot going on in my life at the moment, cardmaking and blogging right now are not my priorities. Thus the 'need for some time'.

To my fellow DESIGN TEAM members and owners, I apologise as I can not do this right now. The computer is packed up and i have just got a new laptop which is as foreign to me as another country. I need time to learn how to use it. Time I do not have at present.
If you can be patient with me that would be great if not I understand completely. Please contact me via email, I do check that every few days, when I can.

Hopefully I will be back soon
Until then
