Make It Monday #62 - with Annabelle Stamps

Hello, how are you?

Are you feeling all bright eyed and bushy tailed on this Monday morning? Full of get up and go and ready to face the week ahead? either, lol! But a good strong coffee (from the fab new coffee machine my parents bought my Hubby for his birthday) and I shall be right to go!

Actually my problem might just be a little too much of that fab coffee, lol. The novelty of making cafe style cappachinos hasn't quite worn off yet and I discovered that drinking them at 10pm keeps me going till around 1am!! Gee, who knew hey, LOL!

Still wasn't all bad, managed to visit quite a few of the amazing blogs linked up to Make It Monday last week while the rest of my family slumbered peacefully. Over 250 lovely creations were linked up last week, how awesome is that ?! I do hope you manged to visit a few of them.

This weeks Linky Party is now open and I found a little time over the weekend to create this cute little boy's birthday card to share with you today .

Perfect for any little Harry Potter fan don't you think?

I have coloured this image with Copics and used my Spica pens to add a little shimmer to the starts on the hat and coat as well as the wand and chrystal ball.

I am linking my card to the following challenges:

One Stitch At A Time - Use A Digi
Color Me Creative Classroom - Boys Boys Boys
CES challenges - Song or Film (I'm going for the Harry Potter films)
Paper Craft Journey - Use A Digi

Out of all the fabulous creations linked up last week I had to try to choose just one to feature here on my blog this week. Talk about a tough ask!

It took a while I can tell you, but in the end I couldn't go past this entry from

Absolutely incredible don't you think? The time this must have taken!

I need to get me some of the patience that is required to create this piece of art.

Thank you Manuk for sharing this with us. I do hope we get to see more of you amazing creations.
