Why is it when you make cards for folk you always end up either late or last minute making your own for family?
Or is it just me?!*
This card is for my cousins little boy JJ, sorry it's late but guess at "ONE" I have the luxury that you won't remember!
I have used the Basic grey range "Archaic".
The chipboard shape and matching brads made for a quick card. I love this range especially with boys who like dinosaurs.

Karen I've finally used it, thank you. xx

Now tomorrow it is my parents Wedding Anniversary and those of you who know me know that
my parents are Harley Bikers...and very cool Grandparents!
So that said I've used Harley colours of Black and Orange and a biker theme for a change. I got the stamp (fire and shield) from the states (Heidi Swapp), the papers are Basic Grey.

Have a great day guys!

Where is September going? Sorry I've not been blogging much but guess I must work to fund my crafting obsession, LOL!
Just incase any of you guys don't visit my pals blog, Marlene, I thought I'd put a note on here.
She is part of a group running a blog hop this week with lots of yummy stash up for grabs...it starts here http://cardsmadebyclaudia.blogspot.com/ and finishes this Saturday the 26th. Hop, hop, hop, hop......my ears are growing and my nose is twitching...great cards to see too.

I must also send a mention out to the Rusty Pickle gang, Beckie and Sarah in particular who also had a fab blog hop this weekend just gone, sorry it didn't get an earlier mention guys but your work was stunning and the stash RAK were yummy too, hope you had lots of visitors.

So guys this is my first card made with my copic's. I love working with them but I think I'm going to need more practise.
The stamp is from High Hopes, Bethany Angel and was a gift from my pal Pam on my birthday...thanks Pam...I've used it now! The papers are from Deja View "Blue raspberry" as is the flower.

The card is going out to my crafting pal Gayle, hope you are feeling better soon. Big hugs.
Oh and Pam...I spoke to you today and you're not feeling well either....hope you feel better soon and it goes without saying big hugs to you also.

Gayle I hope you are feeling better.
Marlene I hope the kids get back into the school rountine without too much hassle.
Oh and I nearly forgot....I love my copic markers...don't quite have the hang of them yet (understatement) but I'm loving them in the hope that I will!!!
Guess I'm just set in my ways with my Prisma pencils!
