Copic Blending Book - H for Half dozen Alphabet Challenge

Good morning and at long last its Friday! My DH is going in to have his hernia operation tomorrow, it seems to have taken for ages! He might even be out the same day if all goes well.  

Onto my DT sample this week
I have been a bit creative this week with my project for our challenge over on 
this week the theme is 
"H" for Half dozen.  
Use 6 of something on your card/project.
I decided to make a copic blending book to keep all my favorite colour combo instead of loads of bits of paper lying around everywhere.  

I haven't used my binding machine in ages and had forgotten how to use the blasted thing.  I couldn't get the holes in the right place and well it just wasn't going to plan! In the end I went onto 
Bind it all website and found a list of instructions of the different settings that you use with different sizes and hey presto worked first time..  lol 

I brought these Hanglar stamps a while ago I just love these stamps I can't wait to get me some more of these goodies!!!

I used acetate to make a pocket and cut plain card that can be removed.  Took me ages as I took the scrap bits from the pages and used them to cover the glue marks on the acetate.  I even mitered the corners!

This is a work in progress so you may be seeing a lot more of this book in the next couple of weeks .

Our new editions to the family are settling in well and have already getting into mischief.  They have met one of my other cats... that didn't go down to well. And yesterday I introduced them to one of my dogs and that went a little better..

So here they are meet, Stella, Calvin  and Remy
