Hol-ODD-day Hop!

Today is the Some Odd Girl 2nd Annual Customer Holiday Hop or Hol-ODD-day hop as I’m fond of calling it 🙂 

Anyone with a Some Odd Girl image on a holiday creation is free to link up and be included in our hop! You can link up anytime today thru Wednesday to take part. If you’re feeling EXTRA ambitious, there are some catagories that you can enter to win some fabby prizes put together for me by Miss Cassie from Paper Issues! She’s fabulous and did an awesome job! Luckily, for me and everyone entering, Cassie sent me along a little giftie with the prize packs or we might have been down a catagory. XD I had to refrain from looking at the the actual prize packs too closely so I didn’t want to keep them. Just looking at the pics was bad enough. I have no willpower! AHH!

My card today is a Shadow Box card that I made using Gifty Gwen with a clear front using a Hambly transparency that I had and ran thru my Cuttlebug with a nestie to create a little window to the inside. I’m really excited to show you all this card today for the hop because its one I made for Sammi at Mad for Markers’ Copicendium Vol 2!  I was SO flattered when she asked me to make a couple projects to be in the magazine along with an interview! EEEP! I’m not worthy! I’m not worthy!  I made one more card for it too but I’ll share that one tomorrow 🙂 The magazine is fabulous with lots of fun ideas and a focus on Copics! POIFECT! 

So in honor of all of that I have an extra copy that Sammi so generously sent me (she sent me 2, I’m not giving away MY copy people, nope!) I am giving away a copy of Copicendium Vol 2 and 4 Sketch markers!


The Copics are W1, W4, B21, B26 and you can see my purty mug right about in the middle of the Copicendium  rckhnds

To enter just leave a comment below on something Copic related that you want to learn. If you’d like an EXTRA entry pop over to the Mad for Markers FB page  and leave her some love (and who sent you) then let me know you did 🙂 Either or, or both.

Happy Hoppin!
