Happy Birthday to Me lol

Well, yesterday was my Birthday and what can I say, emmm it was very liquid hahaha.  A bit hungover today but, at least I managed to complete a project with my new Copic Markers.  I'm pretty pleased with the result although there are lots of imprefections.  New markers containing too much ink and be very 'juicy' being the main one.  Still here's my work ,,,

An Update !

WOW, I really need to spend more time in here, keeping stuff up to date lol

The BIG news is ... I have finally ordered my first lot of Copic Markers ... Yay ... Go Me :D  They will be here tomorrow, I have already set an alarm on my phone so I don't miss the postman.  I am so excited, also have XPress IT paper coming from Amazon ... Did I tell you already that i'm excited haha.

It is also the BIG Wedding here this weekend.  I have spent the past 2 nights turning the train of one of the Brides dresses into a veil, no mean feat I can assure you arghhhhh !!!  Still, it's done now.  My Daughter (a hairdresser) finished all the 'Final' hair and make up trials today.  Bless her, she worked from 10am until almost 10pm getting it all done !

Onto the latest cards and projects ...



This was a get well card for my Mum who recently broke her hip.  Not good for anyone her age, - she's 78 - but, she also has Multiple Sclerosis to deal with as well.  It's been really hard for the past few weeks.
