New Challenge at Mad for Markers - Ys and YRs

Hi Blogging friends,

Another quick post here today for Mad for Markers using this Saturated Canary image available in Sammi's store here.

I went for a monotone card today using mainly Ys and YRs for the current challenge here.

Ys: Y08, Y06, Y02, Y00
YRs: YR07, YR04, YR02, YR00

My cards are getting so much simpler now... I am not as big on embellishing as I used to be.  It could be to do with my de-cluttering of my craft room.  It is rather a slow process, but the more I get rid of, the more I want to get rid of and try to keep everything clean and neat.  I am so not naturally a neat person.  I have to work really hard at it.  Or, it could be to do with the fact that I dont like the embellishments I put on a card as much anymore...not too sure, are the trends changing?? Is washi tape replacing flowers?  I havent bought any washi tape yet, but I do want some!!

Anyway, to leave you on this rainy Saturday afternoon with a picture of our gorgeous boy helping himself to some Copics.  He LOVES them!!!

Thanks for stopping by,

New Release Swing Digi

Hi Copic Lovers,

Here is a journal page I made using one of the new As the Crow Flies Digis - Swing.  You can get this digi here.  I used yellow Copics for her dress...but shame on me I didn't record the colours!!  I think it was because I made such a big mess making this page!!!  But it was lots of fun.  
Have you entered the Mad for Markers November challenge yet to use Y and YR markers?
I look forward to seeing what you create!

Have a sunshiney day,

Alicia xx

Recent Creations

Just a super quick post while Nicholas is having an unusually long nap.
I made this card for a new little bubby in our extended family and wrapped the present to match.

I am making cards for my cousin's business Natural Instinct Healing.  The first mail out has gone out.  These are the cards I designed with their logo as the focus.  Feel like a health retreat in Bali? Check out their amazing website here.

Also if you are interested in meditation check out this amazing free series of audios to create abundance in your life here.  I am loving it, so I had to share it with you.

Take care,
Love Alicia xx

Have a great weekend,
