Mad for Markers Challenge going monthly

Hi all, our challenge this month, over at Mad for Markers is 'Colouring White' our talented DT member Kylie did a fantastic tutorial on Friday colouring Tilda images, gorgeous wedding images and a fun Mummy Edwin which you can find here, also here is a tutorial I did on colouring snow.
Originally had something else in mind when one of my blogging buddies Alicia, posted on Sunday night a challenge on her blog to make six cards in 1 hour, did sigh, more like 6 hours for one card lol. So got my TFG Keep Cozy set out and made these cute Xmas cards, actually took me 1hr 10mins, this is definately the fastest I have ever coloured with my copics! Stuck to three sets of colours and coloured images together, definately saved time. Won't say what a mess my work place was in, I normally tidy up as I go along lol! Got eleven Xmas cards made now.

Finally got to use my birthday pressies Snowflakes and Winter Trees Embossing folders
with my big shot

Isn't he just cute! I got to use my new razzleberry SU card, love this colour, I got a copic and ran it around the edges.

There is a lovely prize of a $10.00 voucher from our lovely boss lady Sammi to spend in her Mad for Markers Store.

Copics Used

B21, B24, B28, BG10, C00
YR04, R20, R83, R85, R89,
V15, V17, V99 and 0
