Good evening...

Good evening folks....well at a bit of a loose end and I am tired as I have been at work all day and my eyes are seeing numbers, rotas and shifts!! It will be like that for the next 3 weeks....aarrrgghh!!

I was having a wee browse and saw The Stamp Man were holding their annual awards so I thought why not enter.

Now you have to choose your best or favourite project from 2011 and although this was difficult as I think most of the cards that I have made are special to me in some way but I have chosen this one as my favourite which I originally posted here.

This one was of the first cards I made colouring with Distress Inks. I was completely inspire by the lovely Elaine who colours with DI's and Nick Bantock Inks and does it amazingly. I absolutely love colouring with them too and yes I do need more practise but I did take almost 4 hours to colour this Sassy so I think it deserves to be my favourite!! The stamp is Apple of my Eye from Sugar Nellie which you can buy here from Funky Kits. the papers I have used are fabby too, they are Apple Cheddar Soup from Jillybean Soup.

Hi Fi, not surprised it's your fav card - it is gorgeous.

Wonderful colouring as well, 4 hours tho! I'd be chucking it all in the bin by then, not got that level of patience!
