Mad for Markers is 2yrs Old

Mad for Markers is 2yrs old - woo hoo.
Here is what Sammi had to say:

Good morning everyone! I am excited to post today as it is the start of our birthday celebrations.. on this date in 2010 I nervously sat in the NSW Dept of Fair Trading to see if I could register the name Mad for Markers... and voila! The name was registered... the next month was spent getting in stock and waiting for the website to be designed and then for me to enter all the product... on the 22 March 2010 the website went LIVE!! And so we are celebrating Mad for Markers birthday ALL MONTH LONG!!

I am very grateful to my Customers, Readers, Design Team and of course my friends and family to help Mad for Markers continue! Without you all I would just be sitting here with a bunch of markers hehe!! This way I get to share my bunches of markers - SO THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!

So what's going to happen all month you ask??

Well.. we will have a bunch of giveaways... you will be able to enter each day on either the blog here or on our facebook page depending where the giveaway is held ... We have... a sample pack of Xpress It blending card for each day of the month, a load of digi images, Spicas and maybe more... so don't miss out!!

We might have an extra challenge or two ... perhaps some games....

The Celebrations will culminate on the 22nd March with a BIG Copical blog hop!!! WITH more fun prizes!! You will be able to sign up to participate on Monday right here :)

I thought it would be fun to have some Mad for Markers Birthday Digis to colour... so I have drawn up a number of images... which are available in the store TODAY for you to purchase... and they might sneak into some prizes throughout the month also ;)

Please join in the fun.

Friday Sketch #11 and M4M

Good afternoon all my lovely friends. Hope we are all well. Just a quick one. We have another fabulous sketch from Genevieve this fortnight over at Friday Sketch Challenge. I used the TGF Wedding image. Can't remember the name of it. LOL. Hopeless. I made this card for one of my school mum friends who knows I make cards. Thankfully it was a hit.

I combined this with my M4M post as my little girl went in to hospital to get some dental work done under anesthetic and I didn't want to do two posts. Lazy I know. All went well with my little girl and she is back to her normal self.

I decorated the middle of the card as well.

Spesch Release Day

Good morning peeps. Sorry for the lateness of my post - I had school testing for my son who just started prep and it took forever. No matter.

Today we have a new release for Spesch Stamps. We have some super cute stamps for you from Jessica once again. Today I am showing you Butterfly Girl and Cosmic Girl.

I made a star eisle card for this image. If you would like to see a tutorial and get a free template I will do one if I have enough interest. Please comment on this post and I will do one.

Friday Sketch Challenge #10 & Sneak Peek

Yep I am back with a new sketch for Friday Sketch Challenge and also a sneak peek of one of the stamps that will be for sale at Spesch Stamps on the 8th of Feb. Our fabulous Genevieve has come up with another amazing sketch for us this week. She is on a roll and she should be super proud of herself. Without further delay - here is my card and our 'Love' stamp from Spesch.


What an awesome day we are having here today - at least we are supposed to. The sun is shining and it is nice and warm. What everyone wants when it is Summer. The best part is - my boys started their first day of school yesterday (for the year) - my youngest son started Prep and my big boy is in Grade 1. So proud of my boys. My little Miss is off to Kinder this year. I won't know what to do with myself with three mornings a week. Yay....!!! I am kinda excited. Can't you tell LOL.

Have we all got our Valentine's cards done. I have only done a couple - I only need to give one out to my darling hubby. I try and make love cards so you can give to friends as well.

Today being a Friday means it is my Mad for Markers day. I used 'In Stitches Tia' stamp - she is available as a set here. She is great to colour. Have a wonderful day - and weekend.
