Tra la la la la

I can't believe that I'm posting a card again so quickly. I'm either ill or getting better at being a good blogger. How cute is this little image. I found him on a colouring page site and I'm sorry but I can't tell you where because for some silly reason known only to myself I haven't saved where I found him. The background paper was made by me with lots and lots and lots of help and tuition ( and a few cross words) from my very kind and very very patient hubby. I downloaded the music score and then added the words - apologies to all you people who can read music out there because it probably doesn't make sense but I was pleased with the finished product. I've coloured him with copics and think I might just be getting the hang of these, I quite like the way I've done his face (self praise - blush). Anyway off now, going to make something nice to eat.

Well I've got to say that I'm just not a very good blogger. I guess I'm okay at browsing / lurking on other peoples blogs but when it comes to maintaining mine well that just goes out of the window!!!. Anyhow I think I've come to terms with the fact that I might just post a card now and again, maybe 2 a month or even 1 a month and hope this is okay. I love the image that I've used on this card, I think she has to be one of my all time favourites alongside Daisy from Sugar Nellie. I've used copics to colour her using the demo from LOTV Its a fab fab tutorial and takes you through it step by step. I'm still trying to build my colouring skills so I'm quite chuffed with this as I think its turned out just dandy. I also got a chance to use my new MS punch for the border up the side and I added a few papermania gold flatback self adhesive gems for a bit of bling. I think I'm going to give this card to my niece for her birthday in November or then again I might just keep it seeing as I love the image so much lol. Anyway going for tea now. hope you all have a brilliant crafty night.
