Mad for Markers Blog Hop

Thanks for joining the Mad for Markers Birthday Blog hop.  
We're pleased you're helping us celebrate 2 years at Mad for Markers!
If you came here from Alicia's amazing blog Time to Create then you are right on track ... if not head on over to the M4M Challenge blog to start the hop:)

The card I've made to celebrate M4M 2nd Birthday features The Greeting Farm stamp - Mermaid Anya.  She has been coloured with copic markers and spica pens.  The stamp, copics and spicas are all available from Sammi over at the Mad for Markers Store.

The copics and spicas I used were:
Hair Y11, E50, E51, E53.
Skin E00, E11, R20
Top and Tail B0000, B000, B00, B02, B05, sky blue spica, baby blue spica, RV00, RV02 and blossom spica.

I am entering this card in two categories: Copic Coloured Creation and The Greeting Farm image (digi or stamp)

There will be prizes for people who hop along, so make sure you leave a comment on every blog!
