MAD FOR MARKERS FIRST BLOG HOP introducing the New Design Team

Good morning all,

Welcome to our first ever Mad for Markers blog hop. WOO HOO!  If you have come here from the gorgeous  Alicia's blog then you are on the right track, if not then please hop on over to http://www.madformarkers.blogspot.com/ to start this fun hop from the beginning (full list of the hop below.

Firstly, we would like to say a HUGE THANKS to the departing Design team ladies - Sue, Louise and Tracy who have been wonderful members of the Mad for Markers Design team and it is 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!

We would 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 as you are hopping…. you can also take a little detour to read more about the new team HERE

Now for some more exciting news Mad for Markers as from today has a separate challenge blog!  This is where you will  finish the hop!  We have lots of FUN things in store for you there!  On the existing Mad for Markers blog (stay tuned) we will have daily inspiration coming soon 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 Wonderful Prize Pack OF:




3 Copics, 1 Multi Liner, 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. You have until next Sunday to complete the hop.

That's the blurb out of the way lol!  I just had to have a go at this gorgeous picnic basket inspired by Leonie over at the Bizzy Becs Challenge Blog.  Perfect to celebrate a cyber picnic with my new DT ladies!  Have used Inky Impression's 'Birthday Lili' but it can still be a celebration cake to new friends!

I have used kindyglitz on the icing for a little sparkle, spica pen on bobbles and nails, special effects eyes, lips, shoes.  Isn't she just a cutie!
