Evening All
Just a quick message to anyone who is kindly 'following' my blog or would like to.  It would seem that Blogger are having a wee bit of a problem with the 'followers' list, they seem to be disappearing from people's blogs - mine included (as you'll notice).  Plus there's no remedy in sight, so beware bloggers it could be your blog next!!

So if you want to follow my blog or have already subscribed (as I have no idea who you are because of my missing list, sob :(  ).....kindly leave me a comment here along with your email address and I'll send you a message whenever I update my blog..  No pressure though!  Or just pop back whenever the mood takes you.

Take care.

Trudy's Party Dress

This is my entry into Mo Mannings 'Trudy's Party Dress' challenge on her facebook page.

She was such a sweetie to colour in, which I did several times so that I could layer her up to give her some dimension...ahh bless!!  So this is my card entry to compete in the challenge - my 1st with Mo and my 2nd ever attempt at any contest. Wish me luck!!

I used Promarkers to colour her in and my one and only Copic:
Sky Blue, Saffon, Blush, Rose Pink, Caramel, Canary, Cool Grey, Cornflower and E95.

Background: QVC's TSV Kanban stamp, Big & Juicy 'Mountain' inkpad
Flower: Sizzix Flower Layer Set, Big & Juicy 'Mountain' inkpad.

Hope you like, if you do why not leave me a comment.

I'm Back!

Well, I promised you that I would update my blog. so I've added a slideshow and a visitor feed viewer, also due to what looked like spam messages I felt it necessary to remove the Chat Box - if you did leave me a message I apologise.  Anyway I hope you like the changes I've made and I hope you'll visit me often, and if you like a card I've made why not leave me a comment or become a follower. 

Well here's the first card for you to look at.  It was a card made for my mum to give to my step-dad on his birthday. 

I cut out a cloud shapes, an oval aperature, tore a wave shape from paper and created a mask of the man and the boat. Then using these shapes I sponged through the aperture and behind the topper onto the card blank  to continue the design.  The materials I used:

Image - Fishing (from Mo Manning Digital Pencil)
'Waterfall' Big & Juicy pad - sea, fish, paper strip, edge of the card
Faded Jeans Distressed Ink - sky, edge of the card
Promarkers - Fisherman
Nestibilities - Sentiment tag
Computerised sentiement
