Crikey, it's flipping freezing here. I am currently wearing a t-shirt, a hoody, a great big outdoors fleece, thick trackie bottoms, slipper socks, fleece slippers, furry knee high boots and a pair of gloves! Yes, I do look silly but I'm so cold, I will try anything! Fingers crossed the big thaw comes soon, I'm getting fed up with this! :o)
Anyway, enough of my whining.... it's Anyone for Anya? time! This week the theme is "That's Charming". Yep, thats right, easy peasy. Just use charms on your card. EVERYONE should be able to join in with this one, right?! Especially as we are sponsored by the ever-so-fabulous Karen's Doodles.
It might be a super simple design, but I really enjoyed making this card! Especially the colouring, LOVED doing the colouring with my beloved Copic markers. That may have been helped by the fact that I have switched cardstock again, thanks to a tip off from my lovely craft chum Marcea. She mentionned the other week that she uses the coated card from Rymans for all of her Copic colouring. Well, imagine how happy I was when I popped into Rymans to discover said card was half price! Yep, £2.99 for 50 A4 silky smooth sheets! Bargainous and totally fab. Thanks for the tip off Marcea!
I am also going to enter this card in to this weeks A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge as the theme is to use 'Hearts' in your design. As I have used a heart charm and have hearts in my paper, I think I qualify to enter!
Digi Stamp: Dressy Ebony from The Greeting Farm.
Digi Paper: 'Just an Old Fashioned Girl' by Pink Petticoat.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) & Copic markers.
Tools & Embellishments: Nestabilities, ribbon, chain and charm from stash.
That's it from me, I'm going to skidadle and continue crafting up a storm. Going to try my hardest to get a few week ahead on my DT cards.Yeah, well, I did say try.....! I'm also trying to get better acquainted with Google Reader in an attempt to stay more up to date with all of your wonderful blogs. It's only day 2 of this plan but going well so far! ;oP
Take care and wrap up warm my lovelies!
