Well in between all the chatting, cuppa's, biscuit eating & meetings at Sticky Fixers craft club today I managed to make a card! The bear is coloured with copics & I just had a few bits & pieces with me so was pleased with the result :-) I matted the pink base (I rounded the corners) onto a square nestibility cut & ebossed on the craft club Cuttlebug in a co- ordinating paper & the middle bloom is a craft club punch.

Quick post (family stuff going on) Managed to do the Copics challenge 11. This is a birthday card for my brother (luckily he doesn't look at my blog!!) It is off to Australia where he lives :-) OK he is not a teenager but like me is still 'young at heart' & loves his music so this is appropriate. Just love Mikey!! :-)
I used my Martha Stewart circle cutter as well as the Mikey download from Charmed cards to make this card.

Over at Dotties World the Sunday challenge for this week is to do a teenager card using a Dotties World download. Well yesterday I treated myself to the Mikey download so I've risen to the challenge & had a go. I coloured in image with my copic pens & used my nestibilities & a cuttle bug embossing folder swiss dots.

Have managed to join in the Copics Challenge No 10 this week. I used the B39 but the nearest I could get to the other 2 colours were B00 & RV 26.
I needed to make a Thank You card for my friend who got the Martha Stewart punch for me so used the punch - doily lace. The writing I did myself as I didn't have a stamp the correct size.

Yes I'm the proud new owner of one of these lovely punches :-) Thanks to my wonderful friend who lives on the Isle of Skye, but had been on a visit home to the USA & brought back this little beauty for me - how wonderful of her :-)
Which one you ask? .....................................................
As I was away & missed her post asking which one I wanted she made an executive decision & brought back the one she liked - would have been the one I'd have chosen first I think :-) It's really pretty :-)
My friend is a wonderful crafter herself - she says that she 'sews a bit' & I'm the proud owner of one or two of her wonderful creations :-)
So I'm now the proud owner of the doily lace Martha Stewart edge punch & I'm thrilled to bits & off to have a play ............................................

Just a few of the cards that I made over the Easter holidays - yes I took some of my crafting gear away on holiday with me, including my big shot & new nestibilities!! So whilst the rest of the family who could & wanted to did their 10 mile hikes I crafted along with anyone else who wanted to join me :-) Some beautiful mini handbags were made using the Sizzix die :-) Some of you may recognise the MS leaf punch used on the second card. The blooms were made with my new flower punch, think it will become a favourite :-)
I made a few more boxes as Easter presents whilst on holiday but unfortunately don't have pics of them.
