Cute Card Thursday......


Well good Afternoon Crafters!!!! LOL
I'm full of the joys today - unsure why really!! got up really early and got stuck in to my first card of the day, I think I feel like crafting!!! He He!! Mind you have faffed about a bit on it, not too happy with the colouring background but I'm getting there - maybe one day it will all look good!! If anybody hasn't seen Chris's fantastic colouring tutorial you really need to - it's brilliant!

Chris has inspired me no end to try different colouring! Click HERE to watch.

So this week over at CCT we have to use something we got at Xmas, I have used my new gorgeous green and gold ribbon - (mental note to get some more) that Santa (i.e. ME!!!) brought straight from the shop along the road!!

I have made a conscious effort to try and make my cards more simpler with cleaner edges etc, although I will still make the add a bit here and a bit there cards too!!

This little froggy I got from my lovely bloggy buddy Amanda - he is sooo cute and I loved colouring him. I used watercolours and coloured him very roughly and the background too then added glossy accents so he looks a bit wet but you can't see it in the photos. The flowers were coloured with Sakura pens. I then layered him on to Bazzill and added two embossed panels at the side . Two little brads to finish and Mr Froggy is done!!

Delightful Dawn Love the colour you've chosen and brilliant work on your background - well done you.
I love that froggie - he looks like he's about to give his 'true love' some flowers and is both shy and embarrassed about it :-)
