Mad 4 Markers 2nd birthday blog hop.

Hello there Everyone!  Phew! what a great amount of fantastic inspiration to take in. I hope you are not too tired yet from checking out all of the blogs, cause i have 3 cards to share with you hoppers!

Firstly you should have just arrived from Billies blog. If you have gotten lost along the way, no problems you can always head on over to the Mad 4 Markers challenge blog and find where you are at.

Now lets all sing Happy Birthday to you one more time for Mad 4 markers! ready........go............
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to mad 4 markers( yes you sammi)
Happy birthday to you!

Now that is done, here is my first card.

This is one of Sammis great digi images. She made this for the birthday. If you like them and want to see or even buy a image or 2 you can find them here.

This took ages! to colour!!!
Here are the markers i used.

Next is a card i made for the monochromatic challenge to post today. but as we are having birthday celebrations i thought "why not include it in the birthday post!"

I have used Some odd girl Nutsy Kaylee set. You can buy this set here over at mad 4 markers.
I coloured with copics of course! then to get a fur look i put some colourless blender onto a bit of towel then dabbed on my image to he looks a little fury!I also used some old stamping up papers, hemp twine and some grosgrain ribbon.

Here are the colours i used.

Lastly, i have a greetings farm card that i created.

For this card i used The greeting farm sweet and toxic set.You can find a HUGE range of Greeting farm stamps here over at mad 4 markers.
I also used the NEW Fiskars interchangeable border punches(banner and groovy rainbow)
Bo bunny papers and of course my copics.
Here are the colours i used.

Wow! thats it! you have finally finished the Mad 4 Markers 2nd birthday blog hop.
Make sure you comment on everyone's blog as there are prizes up for grabs throughout the hop.

Now for the encore.....Head on over to mad 4 markers blog and check out our birthday post there!

I really hope you had fun!
