"More Colouring"

Hello Blog friends, followers and all who pop in to see what I have been up to.  Hope you are well and enjoyed some sunshine yesterday.  We had a really good day, warm, sunny .... not wall to wall but Hey! Ho!  we cant have everything, that`s heading towards being greedy.   However I feel today might just be yet another summer day, lets hope so.
I won!t bore you, this will be the last post showing my colouring efforts .....  for a wee while anyway.  I have to be in the right mood for colouring.  I know lots of you have said you find colouring very relaxing, cant say that just yet.  Might get me like that in the future.  One thing I have found that I have to stick to the pale colours otherwise I can only produce a right proper mess!!!!!  
I prefer to be playing with bits of paper and glue.  This actually amazes me as I really don`t like messy hands, I can cope with the glue buts that`s about the extent of messy I do.   Baby wipes always at hand.
Here is my card for today:-

Base card 8 x 8
Blue card stock
Backing paper printed from Perfect Papercrafting Companions CD
SB Grand Circle Dies
The image is a download but I have forgotten from where  .... typical!!
Coloured using Spectrum Noir Pens
Triple organza bow and a pearl flower I made ages ago.

Christina from Flowers Ribbons & Pearls had a tutorial on her Blog showing how to make these.  It reminded me I had made some, they would be somewhere safe..  Question was where??? found them eventually.

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it.
Till next time

Thursday morning:-
Sorry folks I am having terrible computer problems ....... not just Blogger!!
My computer is not talking to my iPad plus the computer seems to have taken a bad turn as well.   I am not able to comment, they seem to go missing on route.  Technology ......Phaaa!!!!!
I am meeting Hazel later so that`s something to look forward to.

  31. Such a pretty card, I love the elegant frames and bow. I feel the same way about colouring! I'm very envious of all those crafters who can sit and relax with it and I'm hoping I reach that stage! Yours looks very beautiful though.
