Cute colouring....

Morning all..... 

Today, I've gone back to my passion for colouring and decided to share these two recent makes with you. 

I have had a lovely week this past week, I did a demo day at Mountain Ash Crafts on Bank Holiday Monday, followed by a couple of days down at Create and Craft.... ending with a lovely weekend away with the husband in Somerset. A very well needed break away from everything - no connection on my phone (does anyone else find o2 signal going downhill?!) and no TV for a few days. Just perfect. 

Mountain Ash craft shop is a lovely little shop on a vineyard, in a lovely setting and is a gem of a shop. I was using a selection of older dies combining them with newer ones, and also adding a few colouring panels in there. 

The panels I had coloured in a week or so previous. I had had a few hours spare one evening and decided to get out my pens and get creative ready for the demo. I had an idea of what I wanted to do with the christmas frames die set above, but wanted to make it un-christmassy. This is what I came up with and I think it works really well. 

Here you can see the colours in better detail.  The image is from Lili of the Valley and I think it's sooooo cute! I added the Mystic Vine corner to add extra dimension to the top layer and it combined well with the little stars on the stamped panel. 

Here's my second card ....

I used the Just a Note set for the base of this card. The card itself is A5 in size, and the base layer sits perfectly on the top of the card, allowing room for the sentiment at the bottom. 

The little bunny is a stamp from Lili of the Valley and another one I thought was just perfect for a new baby card. 

And here's your little angled view.... just so you can see the depth of the card. Of course, you don't have to add depth if you don't want to, you can cut all the layers into the base and just mount your image onto the top.

So... that's it for today.... don't forget there's a new Pick of the Week going on tomorrow with our lovely Jodie.... and it's one you won't want to miss... !! It launches at 12pm, so I hope you can catch the first show.

Until next time... happy Crafting all... xxx
