This is a little card I made for a friend.  We have been friends for 17 years and I always forget her birthday so I rushed this card in order for her to get it on time (one of these years I'll remember).  It may get it to her on time this year.  I went over her hair after I'd made the card and wrecked it but I just didn't have time to make another. Considering the first time I had her all coloured in put her through the cuttlebug and somehow cut half her head off.  Put it all down to a beginners learning curve.
I used:
Poppy Fields Stamp from Funky Kits.
Ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts
All the rest came from my stash. The flower is just a hand made one I had nothing to match in my supplies (do I need an excuse to buy more flowers!)

My First Ever Post!!

I am a bit nervous (okay alot) but I figure we all have to start somewhere. I have only been colouring with copic markers since January. I made this thank you card for one of my student's Mums who comes into my classroom for parent help.

I thought I might be brave and enter it at the Mad for Markers Challenge for brown hair.

I used -
Stamp: Miss Anya Hats Off (The Greeting Farm)
The image was coloured with the following copics
Clothing: B37, B34, B32, C3, C2, C1, YR20, YR00 and YR0000.
Skin: E11, E00 and R20.
Hair: E27, E25 and E11.
The pearls and ribbon were also coloured with C3.
Spotted paper is a digi from Fairy Tea Party (Ellie Lash).
