At last I can tell....I am now a member of the design team at the Forever Friends challenge blog!!!! We were told a few days ago but had to wait until today to post it on our blogs. I am so chuffed about this and looking forward to using the cute images. I was bursting to tell this news but will post more later today.

This lovely Spring image is a digi by Christine printed onto watercolour paper coloured with promarkers with a free digi frame from cuddlybuddly. The branches are made with my cricut and the flowers are of course from wild orchid crafts. The cardstock is from my stash...one of those wonderful 12 x 12 pads. Christine is on a roll with these lovely images, well worth a look. I hope you have a peaceful evening and I just know tomorrow is going to be a good day...the shopping is delivered around mid-day so rockbuns for tea!

Anyway back to this lovely digi from Christine printed onto watercolour paper, coloured with promarkers. The dragonfly was in amongst my birthday pressies from Lisa, flowers from wild orchid crafts and ribbon from stash. The Martha Stewart border/corner punch is amazing! It is my first punch from MS, Colin bought it for me from Hobbycraft...I guess his retirement isn't going to be too hard after all. I do hope you have a very nice Wednesday, I'm off to see if the carrots can be saved.

Colin 'I was going to take you out to lunch but it might be a bit late'
Me 'That's ok, maybe get a chinese or fish and chips tonight'
Colin'I will have to see what I feel like, meaning said chinese or fish and chips'
Me 'ARRGGGGHHH!!! Is it me??? men!
This weeks lovely image from Christine very easy to colour so I've made a couple of cards in different shades. The pansy's are printed onto watercolour paper, coloured with promarkers. Butterflies made with a Martha Stewart punch and swirls and ladybird made with my cricut. Tied tape from stash and the greeting and frame from my craft studio.
I hope you have a really nice day today, the sun is out already here in Norfolk so I hope it is good warm'ish weather for you too. I have entered this into the challenge at

Anyway, back to today's card. This is one of my favourite digi's from The Paper Shelter. She is so easy to colour and I do think my shading is getting better, I know I have a long way to go yet but there has been some improvement! She has been printed onto watercolour paper coloured with promarkers...there is a link on my sidebar. Layered onto mirriboard and then onto Henbury Lane papers (I think) Swirls from my cricut and flowers from wild orchid crafts. I hope you have a very good weekend, I'm off to join in the docrafts bloghop, I hope to see you there.

This 'convertable' image is going to have many uses, I have already found three. This is printed onto Daler Rowney Bristol Board which is my favourite for printing digi's, coloured with promarkers, background papers and sentiments from my craft studio, flowers and ribbon from w.o.c. There are some lovely digi's on Christine's blog that I just know you will have fun with.
It's another soggy day here so I may have Colin home which means the dreaded housework will have to be done! Just another two sleeps till he retires and we can't wait! We will be off in the caravan with my pens and digi's stashed away in a locker. Colin can go fishing and I will be cosy with all my 'stuff'.... heaven. Right...I will have to leave this and go and make Colin's sandwiches, I can smell the new bread so I might just have to have a crust...quality control...

Happy Saturday everyone...I'm staying in my craft room for a while today. Colin is listening to football downstairs, Norwich v Arsenal. I am an Arsenal supporter and guess who Colin supports? Ho hummm. I will just listen out for any cheers or boos, really, anyone would think he scored the equalising goal himself, and I am sure I am not responsible for any of the Arsenal tackles!!!
Colin is retiring next Friday the 11th so I downloaded a digi from Mo's pencil and printed it onto watercolour paper, I think this is Tom and Tilly coloured with promarkers (my hair is purple) someone said the image looked like us right down to the size of bum! I really enjoyed colouring this, I do adore her images. I backed it with papers and images from my craft studio printed onto matt photo paper.
I think I can hear mutterings from downstairs so I will bloghop for a while and go down when the coast is clear. Have a good weekend and keep warm.
