Make It Monday sponsored by Mad For Markers!

Before I go onto my DT card, I thought I'd let you know whether Steve liked the anniversary card I made for him - I don't know!  He was very polite [after he read some of your comments, especially about the one about lying, thanks Frea!!] and at least he didn't chuck it in the bin straight away, lol!!  We had a most wonderful weekend and love him tons - STILL!!

So, onto my DT post!  Welcome to a new week of Make It Monday where we just want you to share your creativity!  Here is a new home card I made...


I love this image from Pixie Dust Studios called Cottage in the Trees and I matched it up with Fresh Polka paper from Cupcake Cards and Crafts.  This is going to my very excellent friend, Audrey, who has divorced earlier this year, sold the marital home and has now bought her new home and moved into it last week.  I hope she can now move on and find happiness in her new pad - I love you Audrey!

This week we are being sponsord by Mad For Markers who are giving away a really fabby prize!

And their prize - Copicendium Magazine

Copicendium - volume 1 - Click Image to Close

A mini magazine/ ideas book... chocked full of inspiration.

This volume of Copicendium is an A5 booklet with 20 pages showcasing projects created using Copic markers.. particularly focusing on colouring digi images with Copics!

 I told you it was a good prize, didn't I?!  Wanna a chance to win it?  Well, the more commenting you do on other entrants' posts, the more chance you have - get commenting!!  Or of course you can just enter the MIM linky party for a chance to get showcased next week - sweet!
For my pick this week, I chose this card with matching box from Julie of Julie's Crafty Creations...
