Twice in a week

Wow I must be on a roll, two cards in a week, must be time to go back to work, oh it is :( 
Have enjoyed some time off with the kids, our Molly loves colouring so I got her some Crayola pens, I'm not quite ready to let her loose on my promarkers just yet.  I know what she's like and will have permanent pen puddles on the furniture and table so for now she can have Crayola.

Went to a local panto of Snow white last night at Theatr Colwyn, the kids loved it!  We haven't been to a panto with the kids before as they usually go with school so I think that needs to become a Christmas tradition now to make an effort and go out to one :)

Did you get anything nice for Xmas?  Boo got me a coffee maker so I can make my own Latte's at home, we haven't slept since xmas day ha!

Anyway I'm back with another, this is Elven Princess by Aurora Wings which I coloured over about 5 days inbetween a New Year clean.  I spotted these on Facebook so thought I'd drop by the shop and wasn't disappointed!  I used various dye inks on the edges, as I said in last post that really makes the image pop and I got me a new white pen which I'm having a ball with, called a Molotow pen, these are fab as its white acrylic in a pen, I'm sure you've been there with the banging and tapping of other white pens to get them to work well give this a go (I got 2mm nib) as you can see I went a bit mad with it ha!

Anyways the background is starburst stains dotted with new pen on a background by Crafts and Me (Floral fantasy)  I added lots of bling with some new sticky gems and mirror gem and the gold metal flowers with pearl centres I got from Chloe's Crafts at Port Sunny.  Added some very glittery gold ribbon and coloured in some butterly punches which were cut out of shimmery card.

I've got someone in mind to send this to, hope they like it :)  Thanks for looking!
