We're thrilled to have Saskia Smits joining us as Guest Designer for this challenge.

I'm Saskia, perhaps you already know me from facebook, I am 49 years. I live in a cozy village in Noord Brabant in the Netherlands. I have been crafting for about 27 years now. But since 12 years i'm completely addicted to colouring with Copic Markers. Someone introduced me to the Copic Markers............. and since then I am addicted to colouring with them. You can probably say that I am a Copic Junkie. Colouring with Copic Markers is my way of stress release after a workday. I work 32 hours a week as a technical administrator.
