Helloo!  I'm so excited to be participating in my very first blog hop as a blog (not a hopper).  Thanks for joining us for Mad for Markers Birthday Blog hop.  I'll soon be celebrating my 40th b-day, and Mad for Markers is celebrating its SECOND birthday -- hooray!  We are so pleased you have hop along for the celebration.

If you came here from Studio Three, the very talented Rachael's blog, then you are right on track.  If not please go over to the M4M Challenge blog to start the hop....:)

I am entering the Copic Colouring category for this blog hop.  And my two cards feature the adorable Tilda from Magnolia, specifically, "Tilda as a Star".

Here's the first card:

I love how this card turned out. All of the paper, embellishments and sentiment stamp are from Close to my Heart.  The ribbon is from the Ribbon Carousel.  This colour combination just makes me smile and feel glad that spring is here and summer is around the corner (at least here in Canada).

Now here's the second card:

Sweet and simple, eh?  Little Tilda is perched, waiting to celebrate with YOU.  Everything on this card, except Tilda and my Copics, are from Close to my Heart.  I will also be submitting this for a challenge for Kards for Kids -- I'm on the Smiley Team and we make cards for the brave kids who spend too much time at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children.  It's a great hospital and organization, and I hope that through my art, I can bring a smile to a small face or two.

There will be prizes for people who hop along .. hidden on blogs throughout the hop so make sure you leave a comment on every blog! 

Now head on over to the lovely Melissa's Art Journey blog -- and look around when you're there -- she has some stunning work!

Thanks in advance for looking and for your comments.  Feel free to bookmark my blog and look around at some of the other art I've done.
