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!

Ella Ballerina and a new DT Post

Good Evening Everyone! Hope you're all having a great start to the week!  I have some very exciting news to share with you all that I've been keeping to myself for a little while now and can finally spill the beans!  Woohoo!

A few weeks back the lovely Kyra from Kith & Kin Digital Stamp Co invited me to join her DT on an exciting, new venture! Of course, one look at her images had me hooked and I couldn't not accept could I :)   

Kyra and her husband, Scott, are the founders of this fabulous up-and-coming digital company and many of their images are based on their family and pets.  Although in it's early stages, there are already the most beautiful images available to buy along with background papers and sentiments, plus, lots of fantastic new images are already in the process of winging their way into the Kith & Kin Store.

For one of my first images, I chose to colour up the adorable Ella Ballerina

Isn't she super cute?

I coloured Ella with my trusty Copics in the following:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, R11    Purple Tones:  V000, V04, V06, V09
Blue Tones:  B91, B93, B95, B97, B99    Pink Tones:  R81, R83, R85, R89

Card Ingredients:
Lili of The Valley Petal Fresh Paper Pad
The Hobby House Mulberry Roses, Pearl String, Diamante Round Spacer, Ribbon
WOC - Spiral Stamens, Mulberry Flowers, Large Pearl Brad
Pearls - Stash
Spellbinders Opulent Oval Die

You can also find Kith & Kin HERE on Facebook and we'd love for you to come and join in and to be the first to see the new releases!

I would like to enter Ella Ballerina into the following:
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge - #49 Flowers
Digi Design Challenge - Show off those colouring skills
Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenge - #9 Flowers
Make It Monday #160 Linky Party
SweetPea Stampers - Purple Power

I will close with a MASSIVE THANK YOU to Kyra and Scott for this amazing opportunity and I really hope to do them proud :)
