Just before I...

... settle down for a dvd night with the family, I just want to quickly blog this card. Its quite a different image for me - its one that Claire sent me ages ago and to be honest was a bit scared of it - only because I didnt think I would be able to colour it nicely iykwim!! Anyhoo, I finally bit the bullet and coloured it and am really pleased with how it turned out:

I did nearly ruin it when trimming the image down, but thats another story - lol. Okey doke the image was coloured with promarkers and sakura glitter pen on little bits of her. The papers are Basic Grey and the image and sentiment is matted onto mirri-card. The butterfly was one that Gem kindly sent me.

I would like to enter this into:

Creative Craft World - Birthdays
Ai Factory - anything goes
CYDA - Birthday Celebrations

Right Diary of a Wimpy kid & popcorn are calling - catch you all later.
