New Year’s Coming!!

Happy Weekend everyone!  A quick post from me today because we have a special Blog Hop and I’m sure they don’t want me all blabbering like normal heehee!  But a few things I want to say before I go….prayers to those families in CT that suffered a TERRIBLE tragedy that no one, nowhere should EVER have to go through.  As a parent my heart breaks for them especially at this time of year.  Senseless and heartless to kill so many young children…babies really for no reason at all. Makes me sick inside and my biggest holiday wish is for healing, for those that are hurting this time of year and for our country so that things like this become NOT the norm but something that rarely if every happens.  That is my true wish for 2013…peace on Earth…may it somehow happen in some capacity I do pray.

Also, I will have all my tree pics up on Monday for you all including all my decorations ok Smile  And don’t forget about the CMC Holiday Bash going on now thru Jan 4th…many ways to play, many great prizes to win and all are welcome to join in so get yourselves on over there….we’re waiting for you!!!

TouchTwin & MarkerPop Blog Hop

Welcome to the MarkerPOP! & Shinhan Touch Twin marker blog hop!
Our teams are joining today to bring you a fun filled hop featuring a variety of stamps carried at the MarkerPOP! store that have been colored with Touch Twin markers which are available at MarkerPOP!. 

The hop starts today and will be open until December 19th. Enter by commenting on all the blogs in the hop (see blog list below)--You could win a set of 6 or a set of 12 TouchTwin markers...whoot!


So lucky me got to color up this awesome Stamping Bella stamp “Uptown Girl Felicity & Blair” from MarkerPop!  I just love these girls and I thought this pair would be awesome for a New Year’s card for a special friend of mine!  Aren’t they just too fun?  I love using them & coloring them…I have a ton of the older Stamping Bella images (the smaller ones) from years ago but I adore these bigger gals Smile  I didn’t use any patterned paper…shocker I know…just cardstock in teal, violet & black.  I added a black tulle ruffle to the edge of the image with Scor-Tape, sentiment is from PTI and the stars are with the Memory Box die “Starry Wreath”.  I cut the wreath in half and used one half to surround the sentiment, I cut the other half into pieces and made photo-corners for my image.  Then I added black pearls to some of the stars and in the corners for more detail…I’m big on details LOL..the more I can fit in without cluttering the better as I like my cards to have lots of little layers that you notice more the longer you look KWIM.

I'm entering these New Year's cuties into the following challeges:



I added Stardust Stickles to the blue dress, the black sweater and around the image for more fun sparkle.  Diamond Glaze was added to the champagne bottle, glasses and cupcakes for shine.


I of course colored with Shinhan TouchTwin markers and the colors are listed above.  If you haven’t tried them, or are on the fence about them…well I have to say I LOVE using them, love the ink, love the brush nib and the way they flow/blend.  I use them in conjunction with my Copics most days …yes they work together well and easily.  So if you have other alcohol markers you can add TouchTwins in with your collection…if you have NO alcohol markers yet then check out the TouchTwins HERE ok!  We have a TouchTwin Group at CMC that is full of resources and projects as well to help you along the way…share the love I say Smile

Now hop along to the rest of the awesome designers below today!

  12. Oh I love this stamped image, and Felicity is my confirmation name! Ism dying to try these markers but annoy afford to, so I am excited at the prospect of winning some. I love your coloring (as usual) and the fact that you can use the TT markers with Copics! I don't have a large collection, but it is nice to be able to use what you have.
