bear hug

yes another christmas card this morning ..but my first try with PROMARKERS.. really not sure , must admit i nearly cried at the result and wanted to head straight back to my water colour paints.... i guess i must give it a few more tries before i give up (and my DH had so kindly got me a few packets to get me started)

used the lovely sketch over on MOJO MONDAY#165






papermania (a silent night) xmas paper, belles `n whistles stamp, circle nestabilities , sizzix holly leaves, quickutz poinsettia, martha stewart corner punch, ribbon and gems from my stash. added stickles glitter.

what wonderful news a royal wedding next year ~ what a romantic gesture by prince william to give Kate his mother , Diana, her engagemant ring ~they seem a very happy couple!
gosh what a wet school run today ~lewis and myself had on our wellies !!

OMG!! Girl....I think this is sooooo gorgeous!! Your coloring is just amazing!! I surely hope you don't give up on it!! I know what it's a bit more colorful than what you're use to and it's a bit different than watercoloring. Don't give up...keep going because it's gorgeous and makes your images come to life!! You'll keep experimenting with the colors you like and you'll get the hang of it soon!! It's brilliant, really!!HUGS
