Make It Monday sponsored by Mad For Markers!

Welcome to a new week of Make It Monday where we just want you to share your creativity - we love it when you inspire us!  You may remember that last week I showcased a steampunk card by Iulia of My Adored Adorables - where here is my FIRST EVER steampunk card!



Mine's a lot more cutesy than Iulia's!  But I'm pleased with the way it came out but it took me aaaaaaages to make, lol!!  I used Sir Studio Punk by Pixie Dust Studios and the Steampunk Flying Machine by Make It Crafty.  I didn't have much metal stuff or cogs and wheels - must invest in some of these cos I am lovin' this style!  The freedom to be messy is just liberating!  Thanks again Iulia!

This week we are being sponsored by Mad For Markers who are giving away a really fabby prize!
