Add a heap of inspiration, a spoonful of creativity, oodles of patience, a pinch of hope and a sprinkling of love, bind it all together and stand back and admire.

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.

Tee hee Eileen .. .. I used this image on my blog today too.

Mine is all pastel whilst yours uses the most gorgeous shades of brown. I would never have thought of using these colours and yet they are perfect.

Great layout too.

Love Jules xx
