Hello my crafty friends I'm popping in today to share my latest make with you. Now down here on the good old south coast I've given up any hope of seeing a flake of the old white stuff this year and some days feel decidedly spring like. So with spring obviously just around the corner I've put away my winter colours for today and chosen to make a card in a colour scheme which I rather like and to me feels like spring.
So I chose a beautiful little image from Whimsy called 'September Rose' and I think she's so sweet and pretty. I've coloured her up with my Derwent Inktense pencils again. Not so happy with the colouring but it's a learning curve and I'm enjoying the challenge.

Sentiment: LOTV 'Everyday Grungy' messages
Medium: Inktense pencils
Papers: First Edition 'blank canvas'
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts

Okay so I don't mind winter really but what I do find hard is the poor light. Trying to get a decent photo is a pain in the bum to say the least so when the lighter days come rolling in will be lovely. Up next is the usual close up.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Sweet Stampin - girly
Stamping Sensations - anything with flowers
Let's Craft and Create - anything goes (option of mother's day/mothers)
Crafters Castle - anything goes
Right I'm off now. It's half term week here and I've got my youngest munchkin in the middle of making herself a Harry Potter wand as you do. So she's been let loose with paper mache and I just want to make sure that the wand is the only thing getting covered lol.
Take care folks and happy crafting.
