Even more exciting news ..... Sundays with Crissy

Hi guys, oh my, what a month August is proving to be. Can you believe I have even more amazing news to share. I am over the moon to be able to share with you that the fabulous and talented Crissy Armstrong asked me to join her DT over on Sundays with Crissy!!!!! Like, oh my word, I have loved her images and stamps for as long as I have been crafting so I couldn't believe how lucky I was to have been asked. Anyway, of course I said YES!!!!!!

Please pop over to Sundays with Crissy to find out all about this months challenge .... and this really was a challenge for me ......

K.I.S.S. - Keep It Simple Stamper

I am finding it so hard not to put some flowers and gems all over this card but I have been good and kept it to a minimum (for me, lol)

The gorgeous paper was a real bargain that I picked up yesterday from The Range ..... and was just over a pound for 20 A4 sheets .... so pretty. I also picked up a couple of pretty paper packs for only 2 pounds each - well, it would be rude not to wouldn't it :o)

I really adore this image so much. She is one of Crissy's brand new images which is available from Whimsy Stamps and it is called 'Forget me not' ........ isn't she just gorgeous!

I have used the yummy new Spectrum Noir pens to colour this with - I am so impressed with them, I only used the packs of 6 for the whole card so I cannot wait til I have all the others too. It just shows how great the colours have been selected to get such lovely shading. A lady at Slimming World asked me what the rainbow things were that I kept talking about on my facebook .... after a couple of minutes I realised she meant my speccies ..... not bad when a non crafter is showing an interest too :o)

Spectrum Noirs

Yellow 33, 35, 37, 38, 45
Green 42, 48, 163, 175
Pink 86,88, 147
Skin 132, 133, 135, 142, 196
Essential 109
Brown 100
Turquoise 178

I have been asked what I used for her hair, well it was only 2 colours - I used 109 and 100 .... hope that helps xxx
