M4M - July Challenge (Mimosa Hat Bildmalarna)

I know it's been a while, sorry have been a bit slack with blogging, lot's of things happening and many projects on the go! We have just had two weeks half term holidays and the first week Charlie was sick with temp, cold and cough and then Harvey the second week so we spent lots of time at home!! 

Had a tidy up in my craft room and realised that I had two beautiful Bildmalarna stamps from Bizzy Becs that I had not yet used so off I set and thought I would join in the wonderful challenge taking place at Mad for Markers which is to use only B, BG and BV Copic markers. Now there is a bit of a story to this card I merrily coloured the image and promptly made the card and whilst looking at it realised that little Mimosa was actually sitting in mid-air!!!  So had to think how to fix up without pulling the card apart..... so here we go, I stamped this image onto a post it note and stuck over the top of my coloured image then inked and stamped the Magnolia swing over the top, only it did not stamp very well so had to fill in the gaps and add a type of cushion that she would be sitting on as the swing was stamped a little low and this is it.... am pretty happy how she turned out, hope you like it!! 
 Copics used: Hair & Skin: E50, 51, 53, 11, 93, 43, 47, 49
Hat, Shoes & Clothes: BG000, 01, 10, 09, 15, 23, 72, 75, 78, 93, 96, 99

Mad for Markers July Challenge - Creations using only B, BG and BV Copic markers.

I have also been spending my time Knitting scarves, making Hair Clips, note books, baking and of course looking after two boys!!  Last Friday we had a PJ day at home so as well as getting some housework done baked Whoopie Pies with Charlie which were very nice and a Banana Cake. Then the weekend I whipped up some vanilla cupcakes with Chocolate buttercream icing which I was very proud of....

This week I received my collection of Tim Holtz distress markers which am looking forward to having a play with and am excited about receiving my Magnolia stamps from the new collection which I have been informed have been shipped from Bizzy Becs!!!

Thought I would also show you a couple of the hair clips that I have been making, which have been a big hit with the mums at kinder and friends. (Sorry computer has decided not to upload anymore pictures so hopefully next time)
Looking forward to bringing you more sometime soon, thank you for stopping by.
