Hugs n Kisses...Oh look Ive actually made a

Well my mojo for making cards, has been at a all time low lately..But as you can see ive made a card..Just for the fun of doing one...

While sorting some bits in my craft room over the weekend, i came across some flexi markers i forgot i had..oops and yes they all work still except 1. Ive also sorted out all my promarkers, they have been neglected for while..Got rid of the dry ones, not many thankfully..

This has suddenly sparked my love of colouring again..and been practicing my colouring, more so finding a skin combo, to wich i think ive found and now happy with it..Even trying a new hair colour comi lol

The image ive used is a Saturated Canary image called Hugs n Kisses..Coloured with mixture of promarkers and flexi markers...

Thank you for looking

Happy Anniversary...In need of some mojo too....Any ideas anyone..

Morning everyone...Where has our sun gone, mind knew it wouldn't last, does it ever..Have heard its going to warm up later in the week..If it does lol..

Well its my Daughters n Son in laws anniversay soon..So thought better make card now, rather than leave to last minite..Plus my craftying mojo is really going down hill lately..So trying to keep my hand in so to speak..Specially when it comes to cards..Been watching craft channels to try n get ideas, searching pinterest

Have even considered giving it all up, i sure wouldn,t be missed if i did ..Theres way more better crafters out there..:)..But think i will carry on for a bit got to much stuff to just throw in the towel...

Anyways onto the card..Is quite plain, but needs to be posted so didnt want to add to much..
Sentiment stamp from stash..and pearl drops used..Even dug out a die..not used for while for sentiment..And dusted down a embossing folder..

Thank you for looking
