blue boy...


Good morning everyone I hope your all having a fabulous week...I had a really relaxing crafting day yesterday, how many cards did I make...er....one lol...I got bogged down with playing and printing loads and loads of stuff...so much so that I almost ran out of ink and just finished in time...I get caught up with how many images I can fit on one sheet of my paper I used for printing at £1 a sheet its a challenge to see how many I can get on and fill every single square centimetre...sad I know lol...but my record so far is 10 of a decent enough size to colour of course I could probably get about 30 if they were smaller but they wouldn't be as enjoyable to colour or use...oh btw I got an email the other day asking about what I used for the whites in the eyes of the Vintage Adorables I have been colouring, the answer is nothing the white bits just aren't coloured is all...I don't have a white pen or pencil, I used to have one many moons ago but it dried up because it was never used the poor neglected thing...it can be a bit fiddly going around the white bits with a paintbrush but well worth it I think...I'm one of those rare people who love love love making boys cards so when I had a space left on my paper I had to print this darling little Simply Adorable sweetie from Sugar Nellie, I love him so much, everything about him is a joy to behold and hes a dream to colour too...this is the wonderful Thomas and I coloured him as always with my distress inks, I cut him out and popped him on top of these stunning papers from the Teresa Collins 6x6" Paper Pad - Now and Then pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and finished with a lush checked ribbon bow and a button from my stash...I love this fab sketch don't you, its from Mojo Monday and I'm also entering this for the Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge and the Crafting When we can challenge too...its supermarket day today and we are off to Costa for a good bout of 'put the world to rights' coffee too of course...its a new one across from the supermarket and I said to my Dad next time we went I would take for a coffee and a cupcake...I love our coffee sessions even if he does ignore me for the first ten minuets while he catches up with the news headlines lol...whatever your up to I hope you have an enjoyable day

Gorgeous love the colour blue of the papers - your colouring as always is brilliant - quick question, do you print a couple of each image that you need - or do you just go for it with one image printed??? hmmmmm
