Chico's Chopper

Good morning everyone... some really exciting news today.... We are being sponsored by 'Kenny K' this week over at 'Make it Monday'..... just think you could win 5 fabulous Digi's.... yes 5!!! how great is that! Kenny is a fabulous designer and has created the most amazing digis, do pop over and take a look at
My card today is called 'Chico's Chopper' and I made it some time ago for my brothers birthday.. he loves bikes and just loved this card... in fact I think he even kept this one lol!!

I used Copics to colour his skin and Prima Pencils for the rest.  I was in such awe of this image when I downloaded it lol!!  I thought.. I will never be able to colour this in but I really enjoyed doing it and it all came together so well as Kenny gives so much detail and shows you where to highlight etc.  What I did do was print it on to a A4 sized piece of paper and enlarged the image so I could see all the details properly as I struggle a little with my eyes and can't always see what goes where lol!! So when I was colouring the smaller image I knew what was what lol!!  He is one magnificent mean machine isn't he lol!!! .. I do mean the image lol!!

All you have to do to win 5 of these FABULOUS images is leave a comment on another entrants card and mention you saw them on 'Make it Monday'
Some come along and share your beautiful Paper Craft projects with us and remember it's
'Anything Goes'  every week ....... have fun!!

Awesome projects again this week, but this beautiful card by Tracy  stood out for me.  Tracy is always so giving of her fabulous talent and skills, and you can see a great tutorial of how she made the paper for this beautiful card so do pop along and leave her some great MIM love....

This is going to be my last posting for a couple of months...  I'm taking a short break to spend some time with my Mum.. as you know she is waiting to go in to hospital for a triple bypass operation.   Michelle and the girls at 'Make it Monday' are very kindly covering for me while I'm away.  (Thank you girls you are all just the BEST!!)   I'm hoping to manage the odd posting once in a while, and maybe some commenting. I'm really going to miss everyone as you are all fabulous and I consider myself lucky to have met so many fabulous friends.  I will be around this week to comment on all of your lovely cards though ......
You all take care...
Love and Hugs,
