Passing on the crafting bug

Hello All,

A really simple card from me tonight. I had a friend over this evening, she has said to me in the past that she loves buying colouring books for her friends children, and then secretly hopes that they will let her colour in with them. I said that she should totally get into card making, as it is really just colouring, sticking & playing with glitter glue, but for grown ups!!!

As I did not want to overwhelm her with everything, I just put out a few stamps, some pens and a small selection of paper, an then tried to keep it simple.....we had a good laugh, and I came up with this simple creation.

The image is a fabulous Leanne Ellis one from Sugar Nellie......(P.S got to visit the house of sugar on Friday, and will be going again next week! I will be helping a friend spend her money, as I really need to be good, I am going on holiday soon....Also I am booked in for a class in November, so excited, I have never done a card making class before!!!)......The image has been coloured using my "Whispers" water colour pens. The paper is from my scraps. I have punched a few little flowers and added some gems.

This is my entry for:

C.R.A.F.T - Monotone
Creative Card Crew - Lets punch it
Stamp Something - something pink
One Stop Craft - Anything goes

Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls
