Wow!! The Sun is shining...

...but I havent taken advantage of it today, as Janine at Crafting Crackers kindly organised another crafty sessions - where I was able to get lots of colouring done for teachers thank you cards - so I'll be able to get the cards made quickly :-) - Thanks Janine for organising it - look forward to the next session - although I am very jealous of your colouring in skills - lol.  Dont forget if you are in the Teesside Area and fancy popping in contact Janine through her blog where she will be able to help you.

I also got some of Janeys new images coloured as well - so that is some more cards in the pipeline :-).
The sun must have gone to Janeys head too - because if you are quick there is 20% off her images here until the 8th of July.

Okey doke - here are a couple of cards I have recently made as July is a bit mental for birthdays and anniversarys - this one I have used an image that I coloured at last months crafty session:

The image is from funky kits that I have coloured with promarkers and matted onto pink dp.  Then matted again onto I think Basic Grey papers - I have then die cut the heart & bow and adapted it slightly.

I would like to enter this into:

The sugar bowl challenge - anything goes.
papertake weekly - anything goes.

My next card is for my bestfriends little boy:

The image is from a collection from Dustin Pike of superheros and they are sooo cute - however I did struggle trying to get any depth/shading with my colouring, however I sort of got there in the end.  The image was coloured with promarkers and matted onto blue card then black the papers where free from a magazine.

I would like to enter this into:
