Good afternoon to you all from a cold damp Sheffield. My card today is using one of my favorite images ching-chou kuik's Nostalgia.

DIE CUT DREAMS  "Shabby Chic"
ONE STITCH AT A TIME   "Going Dotty"
THA CRAFTY PAD  "Give your project a punch"

The recipe for my card is
*Image- Sweet Pea ching-chou kuik's Nostalgia
*Colouring medium-Promarkers

I swear I made a comment on this card the other day but I do not see it! I apologize for not being right on with my commenting but I am going through some personal things and it is messing up my blogging life. This card is just beautiful, you know I adore these images and you have mastered them like a pro.

Hey Doreen

I know I already commented but your not colouring in the "conventional way" must give you that individuality and make it stand out from the rest, to see what on earth I am on about look here
