My weekend catchup and current Mad for Markers DT card

Morning everyone I hope you are all well...I had an awesome weekend this week as I got to meet some of my gorgeous blogging buddies....Saturday night was quite nerve racking as I was asked over to Debbie P's (fellow MDUC DT)  house to join in a girls night in with the awesome, Karen Yates (fellow MDUC DT), Bronlyn Jones (Shop Bron), Zoe Mitc (Make is Crafty) and Bron's sisters Sharon & Christine but as soon as I arrived at Debbie's house and was welcomed by a big hug from her and Karen my nerves were gone...We had  a great night enjoying some champers, colouring, making a candle and of course just gas bagging..It is strange as I said I have never met these ladies but we talk so often over email etc I felt like I have known them for years....The sad thing is that Debbie and I only live about 25 minutes apart and it has taken us this long to meet IRL...I just know that we want take that long to see each other again..

Sunday I went down to the Picture 2 Page show at met up with all the ladies again..I was a very naughty girl and forgot my camera so I will be waiting for the other ladies to put their photos up and stealing them to share!!

Thank you ladies for sharing such a fabulous weekend with me...now when is the next one so we can catch up again, LOL!

Anyhow I best get onto today's post..

Today I am bringing you my DT card for the latest Mad for Markers Challenge which is a sketch by the super talented Susan. I love this sketch and had lots of fun using it..

I used my new Some Odd Girl Christmas Stamp that I got through Sammi last week. These are such cute stamps and they are fun to colour. My kids LOVED my card as it is bright and a bit funky rather than the normal sweet...The blue around him is perhaps not so bright IRL and for some reason it looks a bit smudgy where the blue meets the grey....

and here is the sketch

I changed the sentiment section for the bell & then used a sentiment where Susan had made a place for embellies. That is what I love about sketches it is up to your interpretation.

Now you have two weeks to get in and make a card using the sketch. 

Thanks for stopping by today, until next time...
