Copic Challenge 15

This is my card for the Copics Challenge 15. I've used my lovely Mikey download from Charmed Cards again :-) This time for a Passing your test Congratulations card. I've used my first piece of ribbon from the gorgeous ribbon I bought from Bea at Ribbon Oasis at the Copic's Workshop last weekend. Gorgeous ribbon!

Just Magnolia - Week 6

This week has been very busy with the Copics Workshops at the weekend - we had a great time (even us workers!!) It was great to meet such lovely people - crafters are the nicest people :-)

Today I managed to make a card! I joined in Week 6 of the Magnolia Challenge - a shaped card with of course a Magnolia image. I did a flower shaped card & coloured my image in Copics. Embellished with blooms, brads, ribbon & lace.

Guess who's staying at my house?

Yes you were right! Calvin mouse came to play at the Copics Workshop today, but apart from trying to grab all Tracy's loot that she brought for us from her shop Creative Treasures he didn't seem to get much crafting done! We were so pleased that Tracy & her Mum came from so far away to join us for the day :-) I didn't get the photographic evidence of Calvin mouse & Bea's ribbons ........................... maybe someone else caught that one!

Anyway Calvin mouse decided to stay on at mine & get some crafting under his belt before the next Copic Workshop tomorrow. Here he is with his Big Shot ........................

But look at who is actually DOING the work!! LOL

More adventures tomorrow .........................................

Dottie's World Charm challenge

This is my effort for this weeks Dottie's World Charm challenge. I have male cards to make atm so used my Mikey download again - isn't he great! Coloured in with my copic markers. The challenge was to use a charm on your card - I used the padlock charm tied into the ribbon (couldn't find my wire which I was planning to use!!)

Copic Challenge 12

The colours this week for the Copics Challenge :-

Unfortunately with my limited amount of copics I don't have any of the named copics this week so have had to use as near as I can. The closest I have are R20, E31 & E35 and E47. Hope this is ok.

The birthday card is for my SIL (her birthday is on Saturday & I don't think that she peeks on here)

I used my new Martha Stewart punch - thanks Kath for getting that for me :-) & my new stamps - the fan & shoe that I got from my last visit to Lynne at the Craft Den Sheffield. I love them :-)

Challenge Layout

I've finished my Layout for the challenge on Crafts by Carolyn Jean Therapy.

I cut the letters from old jeans using my Big Shot & Go Slim alphabet. I used my Big Bite to put in the 'rivets'. I layered my son to make him stand out as he is the main figure. Journaling is in the pocket :-)
