Exciting Announcement!

Hello to you all,

Hope all is good with you.

If you are a regular follower you will know that I absolutely love colouring images and have tried various mediums with my favourite by far being pencils.   
Well the exciting announcement is that I was approached by Spectrum Noir to join their DT as a pencil colourist!!!!!   To say I was shocked and surprised is an understatement......... so I now have a full set of Spectrum Noir pencils that I have been getting the hang of and so far so good :)

I am now officially a team member and you can see the post here

Here are three cards that I made recently with the new pencils......

This is a Crafters Companion image called Wild about You from Rachel Anne Miller

 I had to include my all time favourite bear from Lili of the Valley stamped onto kraft Neenah desert storm card
 And finally an image that has never been coloured before from Penny Black Transparent set - A good catch

I am still getting a hang of the colours and it is a great excuse to have to practice some more.

I will be back soon.

Have a great day.

Hugs Sally xxxx

Paper Artsy Flowers - CAS strikes again!!!

Good evening, how are you all doing?

I haven't had much time for blogging lately so thought I would pop on quickly and share a couple of CAS cards that I made a few weeks ago.  I thought I had already blogged one of them but it doesn't look like it when I scroll through the posts.

The images are from PaperArtsy and I have coloured the first two with Polychromo pencils and the last one with Inktense pencils.

Well there isn't much to tell you apart from work is rubbish at the moment, I just want it all to fall into place but somehow it's not looking pretty at the moment.

Have a lovely evening and thanks for popping over, sorry for being a very bad blogger.

Crochet again and the lovely Janey!

Morning to you all,
Hope you are all doing OK....Monday morning has come round again very quickly!

I managed to fit in some playtime with the wool and crochet hook again..... It is all beginning to make a little bit more sense to me and I managed to follow a pattern albeit a very very simple pattern....thanks to Anna over at Crochet n Play for the free pattern for the Mug Cozy :)

So here is my attempt.......

The weekend was good, I went to a Ukulele festival on Saturday in Leamington which was good fun and I managed to see the lovely Janey playing with the Leamington Strummers, then off to  a hen party on Saturday evening for the lovely Michelle. 

Check out Janey Smith on YOuTube doing a SW version of "I will survive" called I will Optimise...well worth a look :)

Thanks for popping over today...
See you again soon with more crochet that I managed over the weekend.

Hugs Sally xxx
