Just Checking!

Hello all, a late post for me tonight, here's a card i've made using a Mo Manning digi. I coloured her using my Pro Markers during my trip to Devon. The weather was beautiful and all that fresh sea air and change of scenery gave me the courage to practice my colouring - I like to have something to look at for inspiration otherwise my mind is just blank! I'm also going to have a go at following Marcea's instructions (thanks hun, hope I get this link thing right) to download a video from You Tube to play along with Music Saves my Soul
Gosh, I can't believe that just worked!! Hope it works for you - enjoy. Thank you for stopping by have a great week. Hugs. Vicki xx

Pom Diddly

Just a quick post before I go to pack for my trip to Torbay this weekend. Will be taking my Pro-Markers and some images I've stamped up to keep me busy while I'm there.
I made this card for the Lili of the Valley Challenge 88 - Sketch by Bev. I still don't know how to link properly to a challenge, but will have another go, hope I get it right this time!
I adore all the Lili of the Valley stamps, they're just soo cute, I keep buying them and then they don't even see an ink pad - am sure I can't be the only one that does this?
Many thanks to all those who have left me comments, I love to find new ones when I log on, it's so lovely that people take the time to leave me some feedback, so please keep the comments coming, I always go to the blogs of people who have left me a comment and am finding some wonderful work which fills me with inspiration, I just need more confidence with my colouring...........  I shall have to learn how to make my blog look a bit prettier too, as there are some beautiful blogs out there, which make mine look a bit poor- but hey, Rome wasn't built in a day! lol. Hugs, Vicki x

Double Fairy Blessings

I was so pleased with the first one of these cards that I've made another! coloured in again with my Pro-Markers, this time I used Amethyst on top of a Copic Ciao Lavender for her dress and added a grey to the folds of the dress to shade. I need to practise colouring black hair, well I need to practise my colouring full stop! lol.

Fairy Blessings

I fell in love with this image when I first saw it on a blog without English text while I was bloghopping, I was so pleased with myself for tracking it down, I found it on  it's a digi stamp called Fairy Dusk. It's the first time I've made a fairy card and this one is for my lovely ex mother-in-law, her birthday is coming up soon. I'm pleased with the end result.
