Sparkly Tobie and Christmas Stockings and Krista's fundraising Butterfly Stamp for The Butterfly Babies

Hi all, hope you are all well, where is the time going!!!  We had a fantastic day out with my sister on Saturday, went to St Andrews Market (DH got me a Christmas pressie, hand carved wooden trinket box) then onto Healsville Santuary, weather was just perfect.  As she flew back to England my MIL flew here and arrived on Tuesday morning for eight weeks and will be celebrating her 88th Birthday with us on the 11th October.

For my inspiration this week over at the Mad for Markers Store Blog I have used Deck the Halls Tobie, from Some Odd Girl and she is available from the M4M Store here. This is a fantastic set, it includes Tobie, two stockings, two sentiments, a cute reindeer, candy cane and bell.

A closer look at stamped and coloured stockings using my copics lol! Then versamarked the coloured image and sprinkled with Embossing Powder Sparkle.

Copics and spicas used

Copics and Spicas, double sided tape, mounting foam and a huge selection of stamps, papers, digi images are all available from our Mad for Markers Store.
