I thought I might show you some of the lead up to Lily Rose ....

I also sketched and coloured her on a piece of A4 Xpress it ... then outlined her
I then transferred her to Digi and she is NOW available (through the M4M store) to print and colour :) And you can see more on the M4M blog today :)

Some spoils

Hi everyone.. I've been pretty spoilt this past week and I wanted to share some of the spoilings here.... so I'll spread them out across a couple  the next couple of days!!

First up I wanted to share this GORGOUS card made by my beautiful friend Ash!! using a Saturated Canary image - I just love how SOFT and pretty it is!!

But that's not it!! LOOK at this gorgeous pressie... A mini SMASH book! Yipee!! Can't wait to get things in it.. although I must admit I find it a bit scary too as I don't want to WRECK the book lol!

I have used a NEW stamp from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps - Saturated Canary stamps which I am now selling in Mad for Markers :) how exciting!! This lovely one is called "Sketchie" as I'm sure you can guess why ... and it does also give a hint as to what will be in this mini smash book too! lol!!
  Thanks for stopping by... I'm off to feel sorry for myself again as I have a yukky head cold!!

WOW! .... today I turned THIRTY THREE! 

I don't really feel very different but we never do right?! Well it was a pretty good day.. It was a gorgeous SPRING day! thanks God for beautiful weather!! I had 3 hours off caring for my MIL which was lovely... so I went to visit my Nan... who baked me CAKE... this is pretty awesome as she has not baked for many years ... she also bought some other cake (gluten and dairy free of course) in case hers did not turn out! :) Here's a pic of the presentation....

Bible Study tonight... Great way to spend the night.. looking at God's word with fellow Christians - THANKS all! Danielle did dinner for us.. yummy BBQ chicken and a delicious salad and Anna baked a scrummy g-f cake - chickpea and choc :) It's sooo yummy!!!

Today was the RELEASE day of the NEW Digi images at M4M... As the Crow Flies has two Birthday images so I thought they were perfect to showcase today!! Here's the cards I made ....

I had thoughts of doing some fun 33 things post... but I  have no brain just now.. so maybe I'll do one later... or maybe not - we'll see :)

As The Crow flies preview Day #2

Good morning... Today is the 2nd day of previews for the new Digis at Mad for Markers ..  you can see them HERE on the Mad for Markers blog!! I think these two are my favourites out of this release ... I'm giving them away as a gift to a random commenter on the M4M blog so hop on over and leave some lovin! :)

Ok.. I better share one here too.. Here is the sunflower girl (She's my most favourite at the moment) :)

I'll tell you a secret.. I don't normally like Oranges and Yellows... but I do LOVE sunflowers... I started off with a blue shirt and it just looked wrong so I  went over it with ORANGE instead and it looks 100 x better! I LOVE COPICS!!! :D

I'm off to look for the paper showing what colours I  used! Does someone want to organise my life for me? lol!
