Rule Britannia

Good Morning Everyone. I hope you all had a lovely weekend. We had a good one. My son Chris swam for the Scouts on Saturday and came back proudly clutching a gold medal for the relay race and 2 near misses in the freestyle and the breaststroke. We were so proud of him. He was absolutely tired out when he came back and went straight to bed.

Enough waffle and onto my card for today...
 

Ok so the little cutie is called Bossy and is by Mo Manning.
She definately looks as though she has the world under control!!. 

I coloured her up and then chose my papers. Maybe not the best of ideas but as soon as I finished colouring her I knew what I was going to do, so it was a quick dash to the shops to buy the Portabello road papers by Papermania. I know i promised myself that I would not Spend any more money until April but  I needed these papers!!


I coloured bossy with copics and Prisma's.
Copic colours
B99,B97,B95,B93,E21,E11,E00,E000,C1,E53
E51,E50,R29,R27,R22,R20
The card blank is by Crafwork Cards and the postage mark stamps are by Papermania & called portabello Road. I used my nesties for the ovals and a Doohickey for the bunting.

Hi Jayne, what a great card! Love your colouring and I've got that image too (as a stamp) isn't she just the best bossy little girl going - give her red hair and you've got my Emily!!!!

I'm guilty of colouring my stamps before picking my papers, but I've never then gone out and got the papers before I've finished the card!! You're lucky you've got good craft shops that close that you can do it!!

Well done to your son as well, I'm sure you've must've been bursting with pride.

Catch ya later,
Sarah
