Got the Pink Bug from Mad for Markers lol! AND NEWS!

Hi all

Hope you are all well!  Been a busy couple of weeks can't believe DD and DS finished term 3 on Friday where did the term go.  I have some fantastic news to tell, well it is for me, the lovely Sammi has offered me a permanent DT position at Mad for Markers after the happy dance and I could type again lol I said Yes!  I am so excited as I have had a FANTASTIC time working on the Mad for Markers blog with a vey talented bunch of ladies!  So thank you so much Sammi!  Still wearing a cheesy grin lol!

As you can see I have got the pink bug lol!  So here is another Pink creations using my fav pink combo (R81, R83, R85 & R89)!  Mojo has been awol so tried to catch up on a little blogging and found a sketch from Sweet Pea Stampers Blog which helped to make this card (sorry tried to copy but didn't work still having a few comp glitches).

Took this one in the sun to try and show the dazzling diamond glimmer mist, kindyglitz wings, the little butterflies have Pink Spica bodies and kindyglitz wings and kindyglitzed the edge of the card and sentiment.  Special effects eyes, mouth, jewellery.

Don't forget Sammi from the Mad for Markers Store can cater for all your copic requirements, as well as markers, there is various tapes, Xpess Blend It Paper, masking paper etc.   Posting to New Zealand and Australia.
