A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Tiddly Inks Summer Challenge

Goodness me!! Nothing like leaving things 'til the last minute!!

Being the indecisive person that I am, I couldn't decide on which gorgeous image to use for the Tiddly Inks 'Summer' Challenge!  At first I thought I'd post my sepia couple card - but then thought maybe not as I wasn't sure it was summery enough!  Then I brightly coloured in another image - only to find it seemed a bit TOO bright for my liking!  At last, this afternoon, I decided on this little cutie - 'Fluttering by to say Hi'.  Phew!!!  Butterflies and flowers shout out 'SUMMER' to me and so I thought this would be perfect :)


I've coloured her in my favourite colour combo - turquoise & lilac - using promarkers & spectrum noirs.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the bow I made from netting, which I bought from my local fabric shop.

Unfortunately, the pic hasn't come out as clear as I would have liked (due to lack of daylight on finishing my little project) - serves me right for taking so long :)!!  I'm kinda liking the shadows which have been cast though - I can pretend the sun was shining hee hee!!

Well, I'm so sorry this is a not so detailed post, however, I'm super worried I'm going to be too late to enter the challenge by the time I've babbled on!

Hope you like & thank you so much for popping by!
