Kisses for you

Hiya Crafters
Was the Valentine Fairy good to you all yesterday?  Or, like us, is it all a bit ho hum?  We do exchange cards and a wee gift but since it's the hubsters birthday too we usually celebrate that
Anyway, I did make him a card.  A huge one - 10x8 and it took an age to colour but I love how it turned out

I'm guessing you all recognise the Teddy Bo image.   I coloured  with Spectrum Noir Illustrator and Original markers and a tiny wee hint of Sparkle pen on those hearts.

colours used:
Illustrators : Henna, Leather, Rose,  Earth Brown, Pecan, Periwinkle, Cobalt and Brown Grey
Markers: BG1 BG2 IG1 IG6 IG8 IG10 EB7 FS2 TB7 TB9 DR3 DR4 DR5 DR7
clear sparkle pen

Thanks for popping in.  Happy Crafting

Shy lane

Good Morning Crafters

Well so far so good.  I am keeping up with the blogging.  It is only January right enough but 
never say never.

It's my turn to hopefully inspire you over at Art by MiRan and today's card is showcasing
the lovely Shy Lane 

She's a cutie patootie for sure.  I love her wee pig bag.  I can see loads of little girls going for this style
The papers were odds and sods from my stash as was the huge bloom and brad.
She's coloured up with copic markers and a wee touch of pencil for some extra shading.
Don't forget to visit the  shop to see all the wonderful images ArtbyMiran  has to offer!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Happy Crafting

Floral Delight

Hi Everyone
I'm trying to keep to my word and do a wee bit more blogging than I did last year.  Hasn't Facebook, Instagram and the like really taken over from blogger.  Not to mention the horrid changes they've made on here.  It really is an effort for me now

Anyway, enough of the moaning. Let's get onto my card for today.  I thought I would do Mother's Day, just because .......

 stamps  Sparkle n Sprinkle
 Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils - Florales - Rose Red
Sarah's Signature Collection Floral Delights Ornate Trellis
sentiment- made on pc

I love how this turned out.  It's not often I make a card that doesn't have 'a person' on it but there's a first for everything isn't there.
Thanks for popping in.  Happy Crafting

Hello Everyone

It's my turn to host the Art by MiRan showcase blog this morning and I thought I'd use one of the older stamps for a change.  This is the very lovely  Wisteria
available from the Art by MiRan store
I'm loving all the CAS cards I'm seeing at the moment so once again I have tried my hand at it.  I really struggle with the placement of things on these cards but slowly, slowly I think  I am getting the hang of it,

coloured with copics 

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend

I Must Protest

Well Hello there
Long time no blog once again.  Doesn't Christmas and New get right in the way of our crafting time.  I confess  though that I had not picked up a pen since well before then. Mr Mojo had trully done a runner and try as I might I just couldn't find him.

That was until I seen this brilliant colouring contest on Facebook for Bloobel Stamps progressive challenge.  You need to add your own protest and colour up this rather angry looking gal.

She sure got those markers out of their box pronto.
I am hoping now I have found Mr Mojo he stays around for a while. I sure do miss him.
Happy Crafting
