Friday, 18 March 2011 special as you

a change for me today from easter cards ..a birthday card (mum has asked me to make for a friend of hers) ~so thought this elegant lady would fit the bill!!

used another amazing sketch over on :~
PAPERTAKE WEEKLY ~TRIO TASTIC ~ 3 flowers/pearls/strips of paper

used paper by k&co, an unknown make of stamp (have a few these bought from rubbernecker), coloured with promarkers, quickutz swirls and leaf dies, elzybells wording stamp, flowers/brads and gem from my stash ~ finished with a little glitter.

well happy RED NOSE DAY ~lewis is going to school in red and aaron in own clothes ~ so their schools can raise money for those in need in the uk and africa!! ~ fun TV on the BBC tonight..... lewis loves JLS, guess outnumbered, michael mcintyre, oh and peter kay are family favourites!!!......don`t think i will make it too the end.....lets hope they raise loads of money!

Love the colouring and the card. You have inspired me to try colouring again myself, I really seem to struggle with it but I suppose practice makes perfect. So pleased you liked the canveas book, it is appreciated that you leave me such lovely comments. Sue x
