Yesterday I got a parcel from Krista Smith herself.  The first thing I noticed before sitting on the grass to open my parcel is she has amazing handwriting!  Here is a little look into what I won from Krista.  
And here is a close up of her amazing card. 
Here are the links to Krista's blog Saturated Canary, Krista's digi shop and Saturated Canary Challenge

Fancy Yellow

I saw Krista Smith generously offering the digi stamp Fancy, as a freebie on her blog and immediately thought of Leaver's Dinners.  I'm not really sure every state of Australia has these, but in Tasmania when students finish High School (which for us is grade 10) they have a formal leaver's dinner where everyone frocks up.  This dress reminded me of my friend Tennille's dress when we had our leavers dinner.  Although from memory her dress had a black bodice and an emerald green skirt (it was a while ago; November 92 to be exact and yes we are still friends).   That makes me feel a little old so I'll move right along onto my card-

I used these copics on x-press it blending card
(all copics are available from Mad for Markers)
Hair - E08, E09, E19, E31
Skin E000, E00, E11, E93
Clothes/Flowers C5, C7, C9, Y11, Y13, Y15, G24, G28
Yellow Kindy Glitz
Recycled Ribbon is coloured with Y15
Flowers and pearl spray are from Wild Orchid Crafts

Don't forget to enter Mad for Markers November challenge your creation has to include  Y or YR copic markers.

Sitting on the Jetty

I have seen some beautiful cards that feature waves or scenes made from patterned paper.  I thought I would try this out.  It was a bit fiddly but I'm sure with practice it would get easier (right)!  I thought the digi image Hawaii Flower Gretel from All That Scraps
C.C. Designs Hawaii Flower Gretel DIGI Image
would look fantastic sitting on a jetty with her feet dangling in the water.  This is what I have got so far.  I have been staring at it the past week and the card doesn't look finished I am thinking I need some more embellishments in the top left corner perhaps some paper flowers.  I will leave her on my desk and look at her for a few more days before I decide what to do. 

Copics used:
Hair E35, E25, E27, E29
Skin E53, E51, E50
Dress YR0000, YR00, YR20
Flower YR18,YR12, 0

On another note the Mad for Markers multiliner challenge has come to an end thank goodness I am putting my multiliner back in the drawer where it can stay buried for a while longer.  The new challenge over at Mad for Markers is due to start on Monday and this card fits into the new challenge.  Can you guess what it is?
