Ribbons and Bows

Wow it seems like forever since I last posted, I hope that all who celebrate it had a great christmas and wish everyone a Happy New Year.

I had a bit of an upsetting time before christmas as my two cats Casper and Tigger were poisoned with Anti freeze and had to be put down, they were brothers and coming up for 10 years old so were definetely part of the family and are greatly missed.

Hubby bless his heart though went all out to cheer me up over xmas and bought me some fabby presents, new copic markers yahooo and some gorgoeus stamps from 'Sweet Pea Stamps' which meant I had a great excuse to sit and colour over the holiday period, which I did!!!! I really loved colouring these images there is so much detail you can really bring them to life. I was a bit worried that I wasnt going to be able to do them justice, but am really happy with the results I have achieved. Now all I need to do is make them all into cards lol.

This gorgeous image Dara by Meredith Dillman is the first of them that I have managed to put onto a card. (I remember the days when I had a waist like that, which shows I have got a blinkin good memory!) She is coloured with copics,  the ribbon was plain white which I coloured with copics to match her dress and the flowers are from Wild Orchid .
