A Copic Lovers Birthday

Good day everyone,
...and here comes another  wooohooo  - my fun continues :)   I am so pleased to tell you that I'm now a new DT member of the Fab'n'Funky Challenge!  I will be posting my first project next Wednesday so please stay tuned!  Thank you ladies for selecting me to be a part of your awesome team!  Judith you are my new BFF....hugs!

This Saturated Canary is a freebie over at Copic Markers Europe.  They are celebrating their 1st Birthday so they teamed up with Saturated Canary and Wee Stamps to give us 2 freebies, as long as you make a card with one of them and enter their challenge. There is also a draw for some fabulous prizes - best to read the fine print.

I've used the Saturated Canary digi and coloured her with Copics.  Now this card should be for MY birthday!   I do love my Copics.  I had a brain wave and created the DP in word using numbers of some of my favourite markers. 

My ribbon is an old MS, the acrylic tag is a Tim Holtz, flowers from WOC and corner die is a Memory Box called Madera Corner.  I ran it thru my Xyron and added Glamour dust but it's hard to see in the photo.

I will be entering the following challenges:

Moving Along With The Times - Birthday
Crafts & Me Challenge #89 - Anything Goes
Make It Monday #94
Ruby's Rainbow Challenge #31 - Black, White + One other Colour

Now I'm off to chase away a robin who insists on building a nest in my patio umbrella !!  I guess I'll have to put the umbrella down because he is not getting the message....that's MY umbrella (lol).  Temp today should reach over 34 deg.c - yikes!

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by.  Your lovely comments are always appreciated.  Hugs, Pat K.x

This is just flat out a fantastic card! :-) Thanks so much for popping by my blog and for your encouraging words. I knew I recognized your name but I couldn't place where I had been gawking. Scrolling through your posts I realized it was your scrumptious A Day For Daisies card from CME that I had seen. You did a spectacular job on that card too. Hugs!
