At Last I see the light

Hi All,

This is a card I made quite a while ago now .. using a fabulous Little Darling stamp ... Think I would like to attempt colouring it again now that I have done a few more Create and Learn classes over at Kit and Clowder and am now getting more confident in colouring backgrounds.

This has been coloured up with copics ... I have kept the embellies quite simple, a little gold thread stitching, and a few dies. Also I have sprinkled a little frantage over the card too.

I have shared this on FB when I first made it so I am not entering it into any challenges today, but hope you enjoy looking at it none the less :-)

Last Ever Sugar Bowl Challenge

Hi All,

When Karen announced that she will be closing the doors on the Sugar Bowl Challenge and this would be the final one, I knew I just had to enter!! My first ever challenge entry in the magical world of blogland was in the Sugar Bowl .... and I was honoured to be on the Sugar Bowl DT for quite some time .... so I couldn't not be part of the last ever challenge.

This was a card that I made for my daughter to give her teachers on the last day of school ... unfortunately the photo is not the best quality, I quickly snapped it on my phone as we were running on the way to school :-)

I used a stamp from the Simply Sassy range and she has been coloured up with copics. I created a shaped card free hand ... and added bits and bobs to make it pretty, I made 3 of these as the Nursary she goes to has 3 lead teachers in the 1 class.

Also for anyone that's just visiting, I hope you don't mind me mentioning an earlier blog post of mine, I am doing a charity run for a cause that is very close to my heart. If you are interested in learning more you can read about it here

As always thanks for looking

Midnight Run

Hi All,

Here is an image from Saturated Canary, that I have coloured up in Copics. On the 27th of Aug I will be doing the 5K Midnight Runway Run on behalf of Clic Sargent.

So when I saw this image of Krista's I had to colour it up, and wanted to create a whole scene, It has turned out to have quite a fantasy look about that but I love it!!

I am going to give this to my Friend Melissa at the end of the run. There is a group of over 20 runners running in her daughter Jenna's name, we have called ourselves Jenna's Joggers. Jenna was diagnosed with Leukaemia at the age of 2. Jenna is now 7 and has been in remission for 2 years. I remember a time together and heard Jenna say to her mum " Mum I don't want to die" .. when you hear a 3 year old say that is kind of stays with you. The charity Clic Sargent offered support, physically, emotionally and financially. I have seen first hand the difference this charity can make and so this is why I wanted to get involved and take part in this charity event.

I am not the kind of person that likes to ask for money for anything, so I am really going out of my comfort zone to even be asking for sponsors ... however if it is something you feel you would like to do then you can learn more by following the link to my just giving page

I do appreciate there are lots of good causes out there so I realise we can not individually contribute to them all .. so if you just interesting in my colouring, that's fine too :-)

Thanks for taking the time to read this post
