Evening everyone. It has been a long time between post. My new years resolution was to be more organised so I have broken that one already!. I will get better I promise.

I made this card for my mums 80th birthday which was yesterday. The photos are not brilliant as they were all taken in a rush at night so the flash has caused a bit of flare.

This is the first time I have ever coloured with pencils on kraft and I absolutely loved every minute.
 It seemed quite fitting to use pencils as my dear old mum bought them for me. She was very surprised that I didnt just want them to colour in the childrens colouring book she also gave me to go with them!!!!!

The papers are First Edition - Summer Breeze matted onto some more Kraft and distressed with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain.

The gorgeous image is a Mo Manning called Kisses.
Another first for me but it definitely wont be the last time that I use this talented ladies images.

I am not sure if you can tell from the photo but this card is a whopping 8 inch x 8 inch.

I always really appreciate your lovely comments so feel free to drop me a line.
