Time to shop!

Happy Sunday my crafting friends,

Today I have a card for you that was made for a friend's Birthday. I was in the mood to do some colouring and decided to have a go at doing a 'case' of this of my blogging friend Nonni. Nonni is an expert at colouring and has been advising me on which markers to purchase etc. I have just received some new markers but I actually did this card before these arrived. So I am hoping my colouring skills will soon improve.

I love this stamp and sentiment-so perfectly girly. I have not only coloured here but I have used patterned paper!! I am not sure what came over me!

Now I have my new markers I am hoping to learn how to blend colours for hair and skin etc so am on the hunt for some digis.

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:

Polkadoodles-Birthday Girl
MilkCoffee Challenges-show us your colouring skills
Crafts and Me-anything goes

And here is Nonni' card:

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday x
