I coloured the image with promarkers and went for a purple theme as its one of Alisha's favourite colours (and it gave me an excuse to use my fave too lol) Kept it simple with a die cut border, heart and flower then added ribbon and gems from my stash.
As the All Dressed Up blog has just launched their first challenge - "Anything Goes", I'm going to enter this as its the first challenge I've done for a long time, and its the perfect way to get back into challenges, and give me the kick I need lol

Saturated Canary "Fancy" coloured with promarkers, papers from stash. Made this for my daughter's friend for her 15th birthday - she's a real girly girl so thought this was perfect for her.
Hard to believe its been over a year since I blogged but it has been a really difficult time - health issues, personal problems, hubby losing his job... certainly doesn't class as the best year I ever had. During all this crafting's kind of taken seat as I've either not felt up to crafting/not really had a reason to make stuff (apart from the odd couple of cards) and mostly no money to buy new goodies lol. I decided though enough is enough... why shouldn't I do something I enjoy just because life dealt me a rough blow lol So time to blow away the cobwebs and deal with it lol

The image is 'Serain' by Kelly Rhodes, coloured with flexmarkers and promarkers, papers are pink petticoat, ribbon from stash and butterfly diecuts some a friend cut me.

The sponsors this week are Create with TLC and the DT have created some fab projects for inspiration. Here's mine - with no paper in sight!!
Image is from Create with TLC and my choice of image was definitely inspired by the lovely spring weather of the last few days. It's coloured with promarkers and flex markers, added some sparkle with stickles (if I can't have my paper got to have my sparkles lol) I used some flat backed pearls for the corners, and the centre of one of the flowers, ribbon and flowers from my stash, top blue flower is cut with marianne creatables english rose die.
