Anniversary album

Hello everyone... Been doing cleaning up.. again... always the story of my life... well the good news is that I have room to craft again hehe! Anyway.. just thought I'd share some of last weeks creating!
Friday was Guy and my 10 year Wedding Anniversary.. wow... can't really believe we have been married for that long and yet I can't imagine life without Guy and LOVE being married to him! I am truly blessed with a wonderful man!!!

I wanted to make him something special.. so instead of a card I made a fold out card/ album ... with some photos from every year we've been married... for the cover I drew some sketches of the two of us and coloured them with copics! hehe!! Here is the cover...

and here is the inside page.. showing the first year.. our wedding day!!!

I thought I'd share a couple more pages so you can see how I added in some elements from the Flutterheart TGF clear stamp set... I also used some number stamps :)

Thanks for stopping by!!

My little fairy Ria

I have been sketching over the last months.. and I just HAD to share one of my little creations... this is Fairy Ria... She is named after the daughter of my bloggy friend Jac's daughter.. who shares my love of a particular creature... this will become apparent at the end of the month when you see Fairy Ria's "special friend"!!

I'm really happy that Jac - who was along for my Crafty Muse adventures is now going to be on the digi DT for M4M ... yay! Thanks Jac!!!

I am also going to put a few more people on the M4M Digi Team.. if you are keen to join us and work with my Digi designs then please send me an email!!

Have a great day!! I am off now to the post office .. can't believe it's already 2.30pm ... not enough time in a day at the moment!!

Hello everyone! I'm a bit slow today... tired after a wonderful weekend away with our church family.. was great spending time getting to know people better, and learning from God's word! We heard some great/ encouraging and challenging talks on 1 Thessalonians 1 & 2 and spent time thinking through how to get real with each other particularly by spending time 1:1 reading God's word together!

I just wanted to pop on and share a journal page I made showing some examples of Monochromatic colouring.. which just so happens to be the NEWEST challenge at Mad for Markers Challenges...

I changed over to the latest version of Blogger last week or sometime around then and am still trying to get my head around some of the changes... so apologies if some things don't look too great! lol!

See you tomorrow!!

Good afternoon!! 2 days in a row... I'm back on a roll - Let us see if I can keep it up!!I better get busy right... I  do colour all the time... but I do not always turn those coloured creations into cards... and I have been spending a lot of time on M4M admin + practising drawing... so might have some things to share soon on that front!!

Ok.. onto this card.... This gorgeous image is from Krista at Saturated Canary!!! I love Krista's style! She is an amazing artist!! :D

So I  have been colouring a few of these lately.. I  might share some more creations soon.. actually I gave one of my coloured images to Mel to pop on a card.. as she does such a great job on her cards! Can't wait to see it!!

This card was strange for me as I  put flowers on it!!! ahhhhhhhh!!! Yeah I  am not great with flowers... love them on other people's creations but never soom to look the same on mine... Oh well they are there now!!

This card is for my friend Becky!! Bit late but she has it now! YAY!!! :D

See you Monday!!
