"A little bit of Colouring"

Hello Blog friends, our snow has almost gone, thank goodness. 
Thank you for calling into today and for all your lovely comments on my work.
I have said it before but without you coming to visit and leaving comments all this Blogging would not be so much fun.  I find when I click on to one of your Blogs I see something else, click on that and I am off.   I then go on a great journey of creativity.  What a wonderful amount of fantastic cards and projects you can come across when you go Blog Hopping.
I have come across great ideas BUT!!  at a later date when I think I would like to have another look.  I have not a clue how I ever found it and how to get back to it.
Can you believe, this morning  I actually managed to go for a long walk with my friend and neighbour Isobel.  Donned my pink spotted Wellies, hand knitted socks, plus all the other gear.  We were though the fields, woods and along the old railway line.  It was great to blow away those cobwebs.

After lunch I did not know what I wanted to do today, I keep seeing all these wonderful cards that are beautifully coloured.   So I thought I would have a go at some colouring.  I do some now and again but it is not the first thing I would think of when needing to make a card.

Base card 6 x 6 
Digital image from D`Arcy`s Diary coloured with Copics
Some paper that I found on my clean out last week
Brown and cream card stock
Cream American Seam Binding for my bow
A button, some lace and black gem for her earring
I have not put a greeting on till I decide what I will use it for

Once I saw the card on here I realise I should have matted my main piece of paper onto brown card as well.  To late!!!! so it will just stay as it is.

That`s it for today
Thank you for popping in I really appreciate it

  14. Hi Patricia, I truly love this card, you have a knack of putting just the right colours and patterns together. I adore the image and it is beautifully coloured in with your Copics, they really are gorgeous, but I mustn't even think about them as I have loads of Promarkers that I haven't used much ha ha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
