Lucky me!!


I hope you have all been having a fabulous week. Mine has been very busy, getting back in to routine after having been away down south for a week.

When I went to the post office on Monday I had a wonderful surprise waiting for me.  I received the stamp I had won from the recent Ladybug Crafts Ink blog hop. It's just so nice to get parcels isn't it ?!

Well, I couldn't wait to ink it up and make a sweet little card.

This adorable image is called "Wagon Full Of Cupcakes". Thanks so much Kerry, I love it!!

Image has been stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on to X-Press It blending card.

I have used the following Copics:

Skin -E000, E00, E11 and R20
Hair and Wagon - E25, E53
Clothes and Cupcakes - R81, R83, R85, Y11, Y13, YR61, YR65, YR68, R22, R24,R27 and R29
Shading - N1
For the orange icing and red cherries I have given them a little shine with a #15 Peach Spica pen.

For all your Copic and related supplies head on over to Mad For Markers online store.

Mad For Markers post to Australia and New Zealand and stock a large range of Copic Markers, Blending Card, Masking Paper etc.

You can also check out the store blog and challenge blog for tips, tutorials and inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by

Hi Michelle,
Thank you for coming to check out my blog. I apologize for the link. That was one of my older entries, before I knew what to do on my blog. I can delete it and try again with a newer entry. I just appreciate the type of showcase you have here. Thank you for that. Your card this post is sweet. I really like it.
