Ive always noticed on other peoples blogs they
had alot about there family...i try not to add things like that
on my blog and keep it just for card making...but
ive got to add this photo of my beautiful daughter
who was going out on a night out with work collegues...
she looks stunning so beautiful...
althought of course im bound to say that
because im her mother...


Here again with another image from magnolia...
dont you just love her...she is coloured in
with a new pen copics...Im well impressed
in the past have used promarkers....but
since buying a couple of copics im converted...
they work better for me...easier to control and
they have a brush tip that is finer than promarkers..
they are comparable in price being only slightly
dearer than promarkers....of course its
personal preference.... 

anyway onto the card...she is coloured in with
grey and green....not sure on the numbers.....the papers
are from my stash.....the flowers are from orchid crafts
and the punch is one from martha stewert...
thanks for looking...and feel free to leave a comment..

the swirl is made with a template from bazzil...the
sentiment is from my stash...the papers are from
DCWV....thanks for looking....please feel free
