2 Year Birthday Celebrations begin!!

Good morning everyone! I am excited to post today as it is the start of our birthday celebrations.. on this date in 2010 I nervously sat in the NSW Dept of Fair Trading to see if I could register the name Mad for Markers... and voila! The name was registered... the next month was spent getting in stock and waiting for the website to be designed and then for me to enter all the product... on the 22 March 2010 the website went LIVE!! And so we are celebrating Mad for Markers birthday ALL MONTH LONG!!

I am very grateful to my Customers, Readers, Design Team and of course my friends and family to help Mad for Markers continue! Without you all I would just be sitting here with a bunch of markers hehe!! This way I get to share my bunches of markers - SO THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!

So what's going to happen all month you ask??

Well.. we will have a bunch of giveaways... you will be able to enter each day on either the blog here or on our facebook page depending where the giveaway is held ... We have... a sample pack of Xpress It blending card for each day of the month, a load of digi images, Spicas and maybe more... so don't miss out!!

We might have an extra challenge or two ... perhaps some games....

The Celebrations will culminate on the 22nd March with a BIG Copical blog hop!!! WITH more fun prizes!! You will be able to sign up to participate on Monday right here :)

I thought it would be fun to have some Mad for Markers Birthday Digis to colour... so I have drawn up a number of images... which are available in the store TODAY for you to purchase... and they might sneak into some prizes throughout the month also ;)

First up we have Lady Copical Cupcake

Birthday Girl #1
Copical cupcakes
Copical balloons
+ there are a few others including a fun birthday scene.. which you will see on the cover of Copicendium this month (should be about a week away)! Oh and in case you were wondering Lady Copical likes to hang out with a bunch of her friends and colour, colour, crop and colour... Here she is below with her bag ready to join her friends... if you are lucky you might just get to meet them this month!!!

OK... I couldn't go without giving you a sneaky peek at the cover of the next Copicendium! :)

OK... Let's kick off the prizes... If you comment on this post and leave your blog address (where you have linked up our party using the badge at the top of this post) you will go in the draw to win a free digi (winner revealed tomorrow)!!
