CardMaker and Crafter's Companion blog hop

Hi everyone!  CardMaker Magazine and Crafter's Companion are teaming up today for a fabulous blog hop! I am using the adorable stamp set from Makey Bakey called Christmas Carol and 2 Spectrum Noir marker sets (the Reds and Warm Grays)!
I wasn't familiar with Spectrum Noir markers, but they work very similar to Copic markers so I was able to use them with no problem.  What I like about these sets is they come with 6 markers in the same family, so there is no guess work on what colors blend with each other.

I will admit when starting to color the mouse I was a bit stumped.  So I looked at the stamp set packaging and copied it exactly!  That's not really cheating, is it?  LOL!

There will be a giveaway with this hop!
Crafter’s Companion is offering two Christmas prize packs which will include a stamp, 2 six-marker sets and an embossing folder along with a digital 1-year subscription to CardMaker! 
The giveaway will be hosted on Crafter's Companion FaceBook page.
 Check out and "Like" their page for all the details!

Here is a list of who is hopping today:
