For You...............Happy New Year Everyone.........

Hello all my lovelies & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!
I tried my best to get round to everyone & I think I got half done then Megan went into labour.......unfortunately I went pick them back up from the hospital at 1 0'clock this morning (uk time) as its really slow labour & they said she could go home til the contractions get closer together & stronger. We have a little stubborn baby.........funny enough his dad was the same 21 years ago lol. Hopefully tho the baby will make his/her appearance today & we will start another year the best way you possibly can!!!

Anyway I came across some digi images the other day so brought a few & made 1 on a card so I thought I would post it on here today before the challenge ends................I sooooooooo love this image, pop on over to see the others.....

This is 'Agent Bubblegum Spying' from the Operation Treehouse range over at Little Miss Muffet store, they have soooooooo many lush digi's.......
Links are also on my sidebar to their challenge & store.

Punched holes, attached eyelets & then some string all from my neglected stash!!!!!!!!
I think this image is my fave as I think its perfect for all those Tomboy Girlz out there...........this was sooooo me when I was younger..........well still am some what lol.

This fabulous image was of course coloured with Copics, hold on I will go get the list of colours.....
Ok I'm back.......phew....I ran lol.
E11/21/00/000 & R11- Skin
E35/31/50 - Hair...........E29/25/23 - Shorts
G99/94 & BG96 - Top, hairband & goggles
N6/4/1 - Boots & Goggle lens. Shadowing done with warm grays.......

Papers are digi but I cant remember where yet as I printed them out over 6 months ago lol. My new years resolution is to use more of my neglected stash & resort & organise my craft room. So for the time being you will be just seeing digi's as my stamps are getting sorted which could take a while lol.

Well I'm off to link this up & then I've got Ben & Megan coming over as I'm cooking for them today.
Hopefully I will be a grandma is half way there so fingers crossed.

Thank you for stopping by & leaving the wonderful messages you do love you all bzillions mmwah
Challenges I'm Entering.........
