Back from my holibobs!

Good morning everyone, i'm back from my holiday travels, and raring to go!
What have you all been up to while I was away? How much crafting did you do? I've done virtually nothing (hangs head in shame!) but while I was away I did take a colouring book and some pencils and pens (sneaked inside my bag so hubster wouldn't see!)

I didn't get a lot of colouring done as I was having too much fun with the family, but I did relax a lot so proof colouring in is good for you!
So while I was away Crafters Companion had the launch of an awesome collection called Romany Christmas by Abigail Mill, and incase you missed it here is a card I made for the launch...
I used my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers in these colours:
Core 72 set
GB8, GB10, EB5, CR8, CR10, CR11, I used Blender refill to drop onto pudding part to create a mottled effect  then cut out 2nd pudding and paper pieced and used silicone to make it more dimensional
Papers are from CD-Rom, I stitched borders on my sewing machine, and the lace border that looks so realistic...its printed on paper!
I also made this heart...!
Again the papers are from the CD-Rom, I used four different ones and patch worked them onto the heart and stuck them to the MDF with Modpodge .
I coloured that gorgeous snowman with TB2, TB9, TB1, CR10, CR8, and I used the Blender pen to create a pattern on scarf.
I really hope you got to see the shows and you managed to snap up the CD and stamps, I have a couple of other projects to share so watch this space!
Thanks for popping in today,
Happy Colouring

So what did I make...?

 Ta-daa...!  Isn't she fun? The digi stamp is from Mo's digital pencil, she's called Big girl pants! which gave me the idea for the quote, its one of my favourites, I created it using a graphics program on my computer and printed it onto patterned card.

21st Birthday card

I am sharing a card I made for a special young lady who turned 21 last week, she is very stylish and beautiful, so felt that this gorgeous Digi stamp from Make it crafty was simply perfect for her!

I currently love the Die'sire Edge'ables dies from Crafters Companion at the moment and couldn't resist putting this one on Laurens card.
I used my Spectrum Noir markers,
 The colours used are:
Skin - FS2,6,8, HB2
Hair - LY2, TN1, EB2, GB8 & 091
Dress/Hat - CT1, GB1, 4, 7 & 120
Rosettes - TB2, BGR3

The stamp is called Chantelle at the Races, appropriate as she had a lovely evening at the races with friends, and the background is Confetti Background.
Thanks for poppin in today
Happy colouring
