MIM #86 with Ladybug Crafts Ink


Hi there, happy Monday! 

Did you have a good weekend?

Now that the wet season is all but over here in the tropics we are all inspired to get out and about with our boys. We took them to try out little athletics on Sunday. They had an awesome time!

I didn't get any time for crafting over the weekend so it's a good thing I had my card for this week's 
ready before hand.

This week we are being sponsored by the lovely, talented Kerry of Ladybug Crafts Ink!  

and we were lucky enough to be given a fabulous new image to play with for this week's link up.

I chose this awesome image called "Graffiti Josh"



Is this not just the coolest image for a teenage boy?!

It was a whole heap of fun to colour with my copics.



The Make It Monday linky party is now open

Michelle, Thank you for the lovely comment you left on my Doodle Pieces blog, I noticed your DT example on the Make it Monday too and it's fantastic. I love the shading you've accomplished with your copic markers, it gives your piece such depth. Your right those purple bird cages are pretty cool too.
