Under the Weather...?

Yaaayyy...i finally got to make a card again after that mammoth task in my craft room!! I cleaned, got new flooring, new furniture (which is fantastic) rearranged things and phew...I'm glad it's finally finished!! The best bit is I have a new desk which leaves me lots of room to work on even though my "toys" are all around!!

Anyway, my card....a couple of firsts for me with this one! Thanks to Karen for the cute Tattered Teddy's my first attempt at colouring with my very own Prismacolor pencils! I have tried this method of colouring briefly before...but now I have my own set of pencils I want to try and improve my skills...we'll see.....I'm not thrilled with this but I will keep trying!!

I used the sketch by Dawn at Papertake Weekly...thanks Dawn, I enjoyed this sketch! I'd also like to enter this card into Cute Card Thursday's "Stitch in time" challenge as I've stitched around the yellow panel!

And just look at these fabulous goodies my postie arrived with this morning!! It's my candy choices from Nikki's online store that I won recently!! i LOVE these new images and paper packs and can't wait to get "stuck in"! I have to say that I was "over the moon" to win this candy...thank you so much Nikki for your very personal and attentive service and your generosity! bx
