Crazy day...

Well, today has been a crazy day!  Went to the gym this morning with a friend, then went and did some grocery shopping, came home and the heavens opened up and just poured!  We had water all the way to our back door - I had to go out and broom it down the driveway so we didn't get flooded (been there and done that before - never want to go there again).

So not much time for crafting today.  I'm going to upload one of the images I coloured a couple of nights ago - a beautiful one I recently bought from Lili of the Valley.  All of their images are just gorgeous and were so hard to choose from.  I must admit, I got carried away and bought more than a handful - but then, I'm not just a crafter, I'm a collector - my studio can attest to that!  I have even had craft friends drag their husbands into my studio specifically to point and say "See, honey - no more complaining - it could be worse - I could ask for one like this!"  Hee hee!

Anyways, enough of that.  Here is the image I was talking about - isn't he just lovely?
G85 - Verdigris (grass)
E71 - Champagne (pale fur)
E74 - Cocoa Brown (dark fur)
BV13 - Hydrangea Blue (main cracker)
BV04 - Blue Berry (shadows on cracker)
R46 - Strong Red (hat)
YR24 - Pale Sepia (stars)
Y23 - Yellowish Beige (yellow highlights on cracker)
The image was stamped using Memento's Tuxedo Black, onto Eckersley's Bleedproof Marker Pad (70gsm).

And there you have it.  I will upload a picture of the card I make with him at a later date.
Writing about Cocoa Brown has given me a hankering for some hot cocoa, so I'm off to grab a cuppa and read a book.  I will catch you all anon...

Happy crafting,

  1. Ooh, he looks great, and I love your colouring. You have a studio? I am drooling with envy, all my stuff is in boxes on shelves in different rooms, and I work at the dining table. Enjoy your cocoa (you have given me a hankering for some hot chocolate now too!). You're really off to a flying start with your new blog, Bron, and thanks for becoming a follower of my little one. CoB
