So excited that I actually have enough posts on my blog this year, that I can look through and choose my Favorite makes of the year to join in with Debbie's fav 5 .... I have sneeked an extra 2 in this year !!
As I was looking through my cards from last year the main thing I have noticed is the improvement in my colouring skills. This is down to taking part in the classes over at Kit and Clowder If you love colouring and look at other colourists and think I wish I could colour like that, I can not recommend these classes highly enough, its amazing how quickly they improve your skills. Just as a brief illustration of that I thought I would show you a couple of before's and afters so you can see what a difference it makes:
This has been a loooong post so thanks for staying with me,

I am here with my post for the latest Sugar Bowl challenge. We are starting the challenge early this month.
This image is Krista Smith "Party Frills" - which you can find here I have coloured it up with my copics and added a water colour background I have teamed it up with paper for echo Park and My minds eye. Decided to go for the shabby chic look, so have torn the edges and added a little frantage.
I'm posting this on holiday, and forgot to take my post it note with the copic I used, e.ct .... so will post those details later.
Looking forward to seeing you all the sugar bowl, cant wait to be inspired by you all, as always there is a prize of fabulous Sugar Nellie digi images on offer, so well worth entering.
crafty hugs to you all
