Good afternoon to all my lovely crafting friends and followers,

Hooray it’ sunny again although a bit chilly, my hubby and went for a lovely walk this morning.

Enough of me twittering on… I am sharing a Saturated Canary card today. I was lucky to receive this as a present at Christmas.

Here is today’s card. I have had a complete change and decided to use a new Sugar Nellie digi image. I really go into this one and spent hours colouring her, but really enjoyed it.

Good morning all my blogging friends,

This is a scheduled post so I hope blogger has not let me down!

Today I am sharing a card which I made last week using some new stamps from the 
'With Love' collection.

I have coloured with Copics and used Prisma Pencils to highlight.

Magnolia Tilda with Love


Hello to all my blogging friends,

I am still faffing around and haven’t spent much time crafting over the last couple of days, I am in a cleaning mood and even cleaned the windows yesterday! which is silly as it is bound to rain again soon, but I just can’t seem to sit down and get going! I know when I am at work on Monday I will be wishing I was at home crafting lol.

Today’s card is from the new Magnolia collection ‘With Love’. I have coloured with Copics and used Prisma Pencils to highlight.


   
Thank you for stopping by, take care

Magnolia 'Tilda with Magnolia Branch'


Good evening,

I am making the most of my last few days off before returning to work on Monday (boo hoo)! I intended spending the majority of what’s left of my holiday crafting, but I have faffed around and not achieved much – so annoying!

Anyway onto today’s card, this time I have gone back to my beloved Tilda’s. She has been coloured with Copics and highlighted with Prisma pencils. 


Thank you for stopping by.

Whimsy Stamp 'Rose's Bike Ride'


HAPPY NEW YEAR!

To all my followers and visitors thank you for all your lovely comments and support since I have started this blog and I hope that you will continue to visit me in 2013.

As I enjoyed making my previous card so much I made another one using the same shape! I was lucky enough to receive a couple of Whimsy Stamps for Christmas and this is the first one. I was really out of my comfort zone colouring her as it wasn’t a Tilda lol, but I thoroughly enjoyed it although it took me all afternoon to colour her.

As always I have coloured her with my beloved Copic Markers and Prisma pencils.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope that 2013 is a happy, healthy and prosperous one!

Hugs
