Saturated Canary pretty.

Morning all, what a weird weather day today is turning out to be! One minute beautiful sunshine, then a massive gust of wind threatening to remove the garden fence, then  the biggest, blackest cloud ever and you have to turn the lights on. I don't really fancy going out in it to be honest but I will have to as we are missing an item for my home made pizza later on....the cheese! You have to have cheese on a pizza! Anyway, on to my pretty lady card. i bought the new digis from Saturated Canary from the very talented Krista Smith and I am slowly making up some cards for the birthdays through the year. I was lucky enough to have a new sewing machine for Christmas :0). I was so happy! It's whizzingly fast, but quiet and I confess it's a lidl model, so wasn't expensive, but does the job and hubby is so pleased that it's not as loud or indeed as heavy as my old one...having said that I'm not getting rid of the old one just yet, we went through uni together and I made some of my clothes on it as well as masses of other things and as much as I love my new one, what if it packs up?? The newer model has everything kind of build in, so it's not going to stand the test of time I'm sure! Call me a cynic, but modern things just don't last like the old stuff. Anybody agree with that?

Moving swiftly on to my card, I have used copics to colour her, a range of dies and some embellishments from the ribbon girl. The papers, ribbon and button came from the works. I have been pretty impressed with their stuff recently, as they have had some great embellishments, plus you get loyalty points, which equals money back. Hope you like her. xx

Oooh! A new sewing machine! How exciting! Hope this means we'll see some of your sewing soon Miss Rosie :oD

Love your gorgeous card. Fab colouring, as always. I love the muted colours you've used on the rest of the card too. Really pretty.

DOH! Forgot to say what a pretty card (selfless sacrifice of buttons too!)!!!

I'm afraid I blame ½ a bottle of red!

Stunning make, so beautifully designed. Jo x

Pencil practice

It takes ages to colour with  pencils and this one is no exception. It took a good few hours to get all of these layers down on the image....
