Yyyyyyooohhhhhooooo yes it's me, I'm back...did you miss me lol...I hope your all well and had a brilliant week...I'm feeling a teeny bit better and after a lot of practise have managed a few near decent images to use, I think I have sussed why my colouring isn't the same as usual though...the paper seems to be super smooth this time and the ink isn't blending on it for some reason, it just seems to be soaking in instead of spreading...go figure, naybe its a bad batch or something...could that be the reason or is it a case of a bad workman blames his tools lol, well Im hoping its the paper or the colouring mojo has definitely left the building...its been a super busy week this week, our beautiful Daughter is moving house so everything is upside down and things are stacked everywhere and we have been cat sitting for a mega naughty black kitten and yes I will put a couple of pictures of him on later in the week...he is really affectionate and such a sweetie but like all kittens into everything bless him...poor Phil had to work all day yesterday (or maybe he went in to get away from the mess lol) so I headed to the craft shop for a few essentials (well I had to do something didnt I lol) and they are having a lucky dip sale...I picked up a brown paper wrapped pack of 15 12x12 papers including velvet card, bazzills basics and basicgrey for £1.50 would you believe...I loved not knowing what was in it until I got home too...I think I will go back this week and pick up a couple more for some candy to reward your patience for me not posting...would you be up for that?...oh and before I forget my latest candy doesn't seem to be too popular, any ideas why?, I thought it was a good mix of prizes but maybe I should have added a few other things...what do you think?...right now onto my card for today, now you wont need any guesses to figure out who drew this little fella would you...yep of course hes from Mo's Digital Pencil...Mo is amazing don't you think...just a few strokes of her pen and she created the most amazing moody look on this fabulous little Stink Eye Boy...super talented...I coloured him with my usual distress inks and teamed him up with these lush coloured papers from the Prima 6x6" Paper Pad - Doodle Deux I love the funky colours in this don't you, I bought this from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I used some Thickers alphabet stickers for the sentiments and finished with a few big coloured paper clips and a few buttons all from my stash...the sketch is from the YNS Challenge and I'm also entering this for the Sister Act Card Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (this little fella makes me smile so I hope its ok for entering it) too...we are heading out shopping for my Daughter house warming present today and might be moving a few things over to her new house too so a busy day but I will be back bright and early tomorrow with some gossip and a new card...if you haven't entered my candy yet get your name down there's still a few days and spread the word please...have a brilliant day and whatever your up to I hope its fun
