Hi all, I'm back again, but this time I am just showing an image that I coloured. The image is by Heather Valentin of Lacy Sunshine. OMG...she has the most adorable images. Right now she had a challenge happening on her Facebook page Lacy Sunshine's Colour and Craft Club. The challenge is a colouring challenge where you are given a pallet and you colour an image with that pallet...and it is between 2 teams...Team Heather (the one I went with) and Team Jackie.

So the colour palette for Team Heather is as follows:
Image may contain: food

I didn't have the exact colour for the yellow/gold/ yellow green so hopefully they will accept the one that I had. Blue was also put in as a colour after this was posted. A Lacy Sunshine image is required for this challenge. The idea is to make the image look like Christmas, even if it isn't a Christmas image (like if you decide to use a mermaid). The image that I chose is a Christmas is called Rory's Christmas Poinsettia. I loved this image as soon as I saw it. You can find this sweet image at Heather's Store here. #LSChristmasinjuly Team Heather.
I coloured her with a combination of my Copics, Chameleon pens and my white pen. I'm hoping to get this onto a card in the near future as it is too cute to just leave in a drawer somewhere. I hope that I have inspired you to drop in to join in on the fun. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Hi all, wow, it has been so long since I was last on my blog. A lot has been happening since then. We put our townhouse up for sale, sold it, bough a new house and built a suite in it for my mother in law. We got everyone moved in and started working on figuring out how to put 1744 sq. ft. of stuff into just over 1400 sq. ft...needless to say I am doing a lot of purging. I have been patiently (read this as chomping at the bit) for my husband and son to bring my crafting tables and storage up to my new crafting area...and they finally did it last weekend...yippee!! I have been able to start unloading all of the many boxes of my crafting supplies...just to find out that I am missing the box with my Cricket and the cable for my Silhouette machine. OMG...I never realized how much I depended on these things for making my cards. But, I had to make a card for my daughter's birthday so...I had to do it old school...yikes!! No die cuts, or anything cut using my Silhouette...just whatever I could do with my paper cutter. 

The image is from Conie Fong Art and Design called Molly Fairy. I won her in a name this image contest held by Conie. I coloured her with my Koh-I-Noor pencil crayons (can't wait to find my Prisma pencil crayons). I don't think she turned out too bad but I sure have forgotten a lot over the last's like having to start all over again. Hopefully it will all start coming back to me as I continue. 

I will have to get back to you on who the sentiment is by as my computer and external hard drive are not playing nice together. 

Thanks so much for stopping to visit me again.  I hope that I will be on here a lot more in t he near future.
