Mad For Markers - Copical Blog Hop

First off I am so so so very sorry that this post is late and all those that have visited and left a message on my previous post dont worry you will be noted as having hopped!

Yay today is the day of the Mad For Markers Copical Blog Hop and its sure going to be fun.  This is the culmination of a month which has been celebrating 2 years at  Mad For Markers.

You should have arrived here from  Sammi's  blog, wow weren't those 2 cards fabulous.  For the full hop list please visit the Mad For Markers challenge blog.

Now for my project I was thinking about birthday parties and how the kids all come home with little goodie bags and it got me thinking 'Why should it only be the kiddies that get the goodie bags?' and from that my project was born!  I have used the Birthday Copic Lady complete with her cupcake and copic candle which is available at the Mad for Markers online store.  I coloured her using G02, YG11, 41 E00, 21, 29, 35, 37 W1.  My gingham paper is a digi download I picked up free from I cant't remember where!  The bag shape was cut on my cricut as was the gingham panel and then I added cs between to the 2 bag shapes to join them.  The 'comfort food' and flowers were also cut using the Cricut then I added copious amounts of glitter to the flower.

Mmmmmm just imagine this jam packed with all your favourite treats, I think it would make a great gift for a good friend who needs a bit of cheering up, I think we all deserve a goodie bag once in awhile don't you?!

I had great fun making this and I hope you are enjoying the hop as its now time to hop over to  Leanne's blog and see what delights she has in store for you.

I would like to include my project in the bloggers competitions of a copic coloured creation and a M4M digi competition.

See you soon with more fabulous Mad For Markers Digi Images the next new release is not far away and you will get to meet Fairy Ria and her very special friend.
