For this inspiration from There She Goes I thought I would keep the lines clean & simple as well as make use of those wonderful colours. I have been wanting to colour these Pure Innocence images for a wee while now & thought it would be a perfect time as it is my niece’s birthday very soon.
Supplies; Ppaer: A4 White Cardstock. Digital Image: Pure Innocence – 001. Copics: E000, 00, 25,29,31,33. R05,20, 27. B000. Y21. YG03,11,17. G40. C1,5. Accessories: Prismacolor Pencil – Powder Blue, Polychromos – Dark Cadmium Orange. Gamsol & stumps, KindyGlitz – Crystalina.
Not sure if you have noticed but I have been a little off the radar lately. I promise it’s been for a good reason, we recently sold & bought a new house. So with Christmas, working full time shiftwork, fab family visiting, moving house & some wonderful friends over from the UK, things have been, in two words… flat out! The BEST thing about ‘the move’ is that I now have a fabulous large workspace which is light & airy as opposed to my old house which was dark & moody (not so good for card making). No no no, I don’t have much stuff… that is, I thought I didn’t… until I started to pack it up & move it! (don’t tell my husband) all I have to do is set it up again… I thought it appropriate that I share this card with you – they are quite funky houses, don’t you think?
Supplies; Paper: Bazzill Cardstock – Kraft, Two Peas in a Bucket – Home Is Where The Heart Is (Digital Download), Two Peas – This Year Grid Papers (Digital Download).

I thought I would just share a card that I have made for a wonderful friend of mine who is turning 40 (don’t look yet Jack!). She just loves a ‘bit of Bling!’, and what could be more ‘blingful’ than a Glitterball in the spotlight! This Sassy Studio image was fun to colour although I did have to play with her hair as I wasn’t sure what colours to use to make a luscious redhead… So here’s to you Jackie, have the most wonderful birthday ever! xx
This is for a fellow blogger who is having an operation. Linda is the one who encouraged me to start my own blog (…you can tell my husband it’s all her fault!). Linda, I hope you’ll be in the best of health again soon and then you can spend your ‘recovering’ time making some more fabulous cards!

Okay, so I wanted to try ‘feathering’ with Copics & what better place than on a bird! There is a challenge at Copic Oz which also includes a feathering tutorial. I also thought I would create a card that I could enter into the current Caardvarks Holiday Die Cuts Challenge. This is when I decided that I need to get me some fancy bauble die cuts… but I had to settle with what I’ve got and went for the Nesties instead, but with a wreath twist. Don’t ya just love Mo’s Images, they are just soooo much fun to colour!

TSG is having another Colour Challenge, and the colours scream Halloween, but I was thinking of something completely different… Obviously! Bold, Bright & a Bow. When I finished it I was wondering if it may have just been a little too bright?
So this will be just a quick post to enter this card into this weeks challenge at Sassy Studio Designs, Dare to be Sassy #41. It’s breast cancer awareness month & the colour is pink… so why not make it bright!

I have been meaning to make some pet sympathy cards for a while now, I think they are a great idea and they are hard to find. Of course I didn’t make them until today when I needed one for a work friend. Her cat has been very sick recently and finally lost her battle. I tried to make this card a little cheerful, this digital stamp is just too cute & I hope it makes her smile (my cat is getting lots of cuddles today…. much to her disgust).

So I wasn’t particularly happy with my entry to the Scrapbook Boutique Colour Challenge. I thought I could do better. This is my second attempt. Not quite so pastelly (not sure if there is such a word), I think it’s better. Hope you like it! Of course I made 2 versions, this also seems to be my current trend, my theory being that I have already made a mess, so why not make the most of it. Here is where you can find this digital download Isabella’s Sketchbook (thanks Marion).
