With the winning stuff covered, let me thank you for coming by! I always love guests, and I am super excited about this blog hop. It is our first after-all :) The theme for our hop is "favorite things". For me, when it comes to crafting, I have way too many items in my favorites pile. Right now my Copic markers are at the very top of my list. I also love the Magnolia stamp line, Martha Stewart punches, my Cricut, my computer, my ATG gun (even though I am longing for the new pink one), Stickles, and so much more! ~LOL~ Like I said, crafting is my weakness.
For this blog hop project, I knew I was starting with my Magnolia stamps and my Copic Sketch Markers. I picked my Copic colors based on the papers I chose for the finished project. I colored two images, and added Glossy Accents to the shoes. I guess I should tell you that I made two images because I let my husband choose the image that he liked the best for the card. He got the honor, because I was making this for his mom's birthday. After much deliberation, hubby picked the cake image. I added Diamond Stickles to the candle and the cake for a little frosty sparkle.
