Spring Connie


Good evening all my lovelies have you all enjoyed your weekend? Have you had your chillaxing time lol?
Tonight I thought I would make a card to put 1 of my coloured images on, the ones that I colour & put them in a box then they never see the light of day again.....do you have any of those? That was until I saw this paper & thought it was perfect for The Sugar Bowl sketch with the theme of 'Spring'........so thats what I did.........

Are you scratching your head?? Yeah me too.....yes my coloured images are STILL in their box cus after I had done this card in lemons & grey I thought it would be fab with just a grey drawing........
....Enter 'Connie' I coloured her skin only & sat her right there & I think she sits well there. She is of course a digi from Funkykits.

The inside is done to compliment the front of course.

Paper is from Etsy, lace, pearls & sunflower is from my stash.
Other flowers are from Crafty Emma's.

The bottom edge of the card I did myself on my Grand Calibur.
Well thats it from me quick post tonight cus I've done no blog hopping today its been one of those busy days & when I did go on the net I went shopping to Crafty Emma's......yes she has the new Websters Pages in & I just love Websters.....& its not my fault that other stuff fell in the basket I did really well & kept it under £40......check me out lol.
Well I'm off to do some blog hopping so I will see you soonies.
Thank you SOOOOO much for stopping by with all my heart I appreciate it.
Take care toodles..... xoxoxoxoxox
Challenge I'm Entering.......

Evening Vicky and guess what - Snap, I went and got the websters to and think our tally was about the same. Wish my fingers wouldn't do the talking all the time ROFL. Gorgeous card, love the lemon/grey and the image is gorgeous just with the skin coloured. Love the sound of the calibur but think its too technical for me. Hope you've had a good weekend!

Hi Vicky,

Great idea, no stress of picking the colours to suit your paper, lol! Love it. It looks really fresh.

Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog. I wish I could blog more, but I work full time and life just gets in the way sometimes. I always make cards, but just don't get the chnace to blog everything.

Your comments are lovely so thank you x

Beautiful, I love how you've coloured the image and you can't get a better spring colour than yellow.
