Mad About Markers at Crafting When We Can

Good morning! And happy Sunday! Last weekend my hubby and I suffered from that awful stomach bug. Night before last he started feeling it again!! Yesterday I spent the time bleaching everything!! I scrubbed the bathroom, door knobs, light fixtures, where we touch the tv to turn it, the remote controls, mice LOL You name it ... anything I could think of I wiped down with bleach. I also bought some hand sanitizer to go on top of our regular soap washing..  I'm a big soap and water hand washer.. I work in the health industry.. makes sense ;) I stripped the bed again and washed it and the towels. LOL So there you have it... I've cleaned and cleaned. He didn't get anything full on, so I'm happy about that. Now.. on to our challenge :) Have a great rest of your weekend everyone!

Today is Challenge #46 at Crafting When We Can. Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is Lacy Sunshine. The theme for this challenge is Mad About Markers. So get your markers out, Copic, Spectrum Noir, whatever you use and start coloring!

I used my copic markers on the wonderful Olivia Otter from Lacy Sunshine. I also used two different shades of green gems from my stash, a rhinestone swirl, ribbon, buttons and twine. I punched a scalloped circle which I added my sentiment to, Your Otter This World. I used brown and green cardstock from my stash. I embossed the brown with dots. The patterned papers are from Animal Crackers Matstack from DCWV. And I think that is it. I love all the papers in that matstack.
