HOWDY Star Easel and Homemade Apple Pie etc

Hope you are all well, continuing our challenge over at the Mad for Markers Challenge Blog is to create a Male Creation using some of your brown copics!  Today I have used TGF 'Sheriff Ian' and created this star easel card.   This challenge finishes Saturday.

The stars have been made using shrink plastic, which was coloured using E47, then used a CM star punch and the SU Crop a dile for the hole in the centre (ish). 
 and the image cut out from the cardstock DCWV All About Boys Stack (love them)

This is personal stuff, so please skip if you wish
Another update on our goodies from the garden, here is Rosanna peeling the freshly picked Granny Smiths Apples last night (Monday), they love the new gadget, so much quicker too and I get help lol!

This is some of the apple sauce we made

These are two of the pork mince and apple puff pastry rolls using some of the apple sauce
Rosanna and Morgan love them, work perfect in the lunch boxes, I get Rosanna eating
meat and Morgan eating fruit lol!

This is one of Edward's favourates homemade apple pie, mmmmmm

and these are my favourates, they smell gorgeous and so much better for my figure lol!
these are being cyber sent to you my crafting buddies

Showed two pics to try and show the colour properly a very deep purple colour, a mixture of
copics BV08 and V09 and no I haven't coloured them lol!
