Hello Everyone...hope your weekend is going well...mine is on it's last legs..the sun has gone to bed and so will I be by the time you read this as I'm popping it on schedule.

Welcome to a new fortnight challenge with Lacy Sunshine..

We had so many gorgeous cards and projects last time so thank you to all who joined in..and congratulations to the winners..

This week we have Dies and/or Punches...and I had such fun colouring this image in weeks ago...thank my mojo has still departed and have no idea where he will pop up or when..

This is Mikey Sweet Urchin from the Sweet Urchin Collection at Lacy Sunshine 

I went with a male theme this time...isn't he a beauty.

Coloured with copics and Faber Castell pencils...remember when we got milk in bottles and had to beat the birds before they pecked the foil

There's a close up Mikey and very happy with my shading this time.

The papers are "Lost and found Two" and the die cuts I bought from a small craft shop and think they are Memory box or Cheery Lyn..she cuts them out and bags them up without a label..but I love the lamp post and cat.

The big button is chipboard and I used some wire to tie it up and black netting behind the papers..decorated inside to match.

So thats me to bed soon..been a big 2 days.

Thanks so much for stopping by and any comments you leave...really appreciate it but wish my followers would stop dropping off...I lost another one sad!.

Challenges to enter...

Hello Chrissy! I love this fella - the colours are so fab and I love how you did the shading around him!

I know what you mean about the followers. I think it's sometimes because they move from using blogger or I've heard people have had issues with blogger and lose their follower listing!

Now that's CUTE! A little black cat is perfect there eyeballing those glass jars of milk. You know I was flea market shopping the other day and found one of those milk carriers and I should have bought it! Stupid me for passing that up. Your card is FABULOUS and I love the light of the street lamp. Perfectly vintage :)

Hello my friend. I hear with whole mojo thing. I've had three days off and you would think a third grader made the two cards I did manage to trudge my way through. lol... Anyhow, I think your little man here is adorable and I so agree about the lamp post and kitty cat. Super cute! Thank you so much for the Birthday wishes. It truly means a lot to me. Hope you and Harry had a wonderful weekend and I hope your week is off to a great start. Hugs Lisa

Hi Chrissy wow he is gorgeous, beautiful colouring. I remember the milk man coming and in winter if you didn't bring it in it would freeze! I keep loosing one follower then gaining one its quite frustrating! Susan x

Oh, and forgot to say - can't believe Followers are dropping - what's the matter with them?! Maybe a Blogger glitch?
