My Last Post for Mad for Markers

Hi all

It is with sadness that I have stepped down from my DT positions, so this is my last post for Mad for Markers, I have been with Sammi for a year (where did it go), I have had a wonderful crafting journey, learnt so much and met some beautiful blogging buddies! Lucky enough to meet some in person when helping Sammi at Paperific.  I am sure gonna miss you girls!!!:(  You are an amazing talented bunch of crafters and lots of fun too!

They reason why:

For sometime now I have fancied having my own craft store and finally took the plunge and l am hoping to buy a craft business, I have never run a store before, so have much too learn and will be spending time with the owner learning as much as possible.  We will have to move house if all goes to plan so in trying to get the house and garden ready to sell, all the travelling, working for Edward, plus Rosanna and Morgan, I just don't have the time to fulfill my DT duties properly.  So keep your fingers crossed everything goes to plan. I will still be around in blog land (hopefully with a creation or two) if not just looking at the gorgeous creations you all make.

Onto our new challenge over at  Mad for Markers is colouring grey, now this was a challenge for me as I have never done this before, so here is my attempt I have used this image and sentiment from The Greeting Farm Set 'A Journey', which I thought was just perfect.  (This came in my blog candy stash from Debbie, thank you).  You do not have to colour all your image grey if you don't want, just use some grey copics somewhere on your creation, your papers don't have to be grey either, I think my mood was grey at the time, so everything was grey lol!

All papers are SU, distressed all the edges, image stamped on XPress Blending Card, the background was created dotting around the image with the grey copics.

 Copics  C00, C01, C03, C5, C7 (never used so few copics before lol!)

We have some new members to the team and the lovely Bron will be filling my Tuesday post over at Mad for Markers so don't forget to stop by and see the wonderful inspiration each day from the DT.

Copics and Xpress It Blending Card as well as LaLa Land Stamps and The Greeting Farm Images are all available from Sammi over at the Mad for Markers Store.

Being British just had to share this photo of such a beautiful couple, just for any of you who haven't seen it yet lol!  I remember watching his parents get married nearly 30 years ago, where does the time go!  Now I do feel old!!  Didn't Kate look gorgeous and William so handsome!

Now better get moving off to the other side of the city, Dandenong South, to pick up a load of metal, so catch up with you all soon.

Thank you for visiting, Happy Crafting, take careX:)
