Happy Monday !!

Good Afternoon everyone,

What an exciting weekend I've had!! Firstly on Saturday, I attended a Copic class at Chandon Craft with Mandi-Lee Klinger. You have to check out Mandi's blog here ( Mandi's cards are just gorgeous, and after all the tips, techniques and fun of the class, I'm so inspired to just colour, colour, colour !!!

Below is a pic of the card I made in class, and after just 4 hours with Mandi, I think my Copic blending has improved (not that I want to blow my own trumpet or anything ... lol). Even though some blending techniques still need plenty of practice, I'm pretty happy with the way this card turned out.

Thanks again Mandi for such a great day!!

Then, after coming home from class on Saturday, I logged on to the pc, only to find that I'd won a gift from Mad For Markers from commenting on their Facebook page. How exciting !! I'm not sure what I've won, but can't wait for the postie each day now !! Thanks Sammi :)

Anyway, thanks heaps for stopping by, and thanks so much for all your comments and support. It's great to get feedback on my work, and I really appreciate it. I'm off now to prepare for another Chandon class tonight .... I can't get enough at the moment !!

Take care everyone,
Cheers, Honor xoxo

This is definately a first for me. Below is a pic of the very first ATC I've ever made.

Over at Mad for Markers (, their July challenge is ATC's (using Copics somewhere on your creation).

An ATC is an Artists Trading Card, and is 3.5" x 2.5", either landscape or portrait. It was definately a challenge for me to make such a small card. I usually like to fill my cards with flowers and bits & pieces, however I enjoyed making this ATC, and will definately be making some more. What a great way to use up some scrap paper!

So hop on over to Mad for Markers today, and create your own ATC. Make sure you check out their blog, as there are some gorgeous ATC's to see.

Well, it's almost time for me to pick up my little one from day care. I hope you've all been having an enjoyable school holiays. I can't believe it's almost over!!

Take care for now,
Honor xoxo

Finally .....

I've found some spare time for "me" !! With the school holidays in full swing, it's been a battle to find some time for myself, however I've managed to do that today, and below is the result.

I've decided to enter these into Bizzy Bec's July challenge. The theme for this month's challenge is "pearls and swirls". I've gone with these strings of pearls which I love. Something simple, yet still effective I think.
The kids and I have been having lots of fun these holidays. We've been to the movies, out for lunch, and my junior "masterchef" Lachlan, has been having a ball cooking up a storm. I think I might be able to retire from cooking dinner soon .... he is doing such an awesome job!!
Anyway, thanks for stopping by. Take care for now,
Honor xo
