A bit of Inspiration... TTT anything goes wk 2

Afternoon all, I was meant to sit and write this last night, but the pencils got the better of me and I couldn't be bothered to move! At last we appear to have the internet up and running, feels good being online again, I have missed being on here and seeing everyones creations! 

I apologise for my photos, in the new house I am going to be struggling for a while to find suitable places to take my photos, the house needs a 'make over' as well as the light is appalling! We only have wall lights in the lounge and so the light is a bit rubbish!

Anyway I'm here with a little inspiration for you for the challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday, as we are now a bi-weekly challenge blog, were adding an inspiration post for you all to see! This is a card I have made for a very close friend to say Thank you for our christmas presents, once again she has spoilt us all! 

I have used a stamp that I brought last year before we moved, it so happened that the stamp got 'put away' and i had forgotten about it, I purchased her from quixotic paperie a little while ago.  She is from the 'blush society' from The Greeting Farm.  I want to get the other ones, I think they are so cute, and the matching stamps are wonderful! 

I coloured here using copics BV00 and BV02, her skin was using E000, E00, E02 and R20 for her cheeks, OK so that was off the top of my head and I can't remember her hair colour! I used a shaped card blank as I have no idea where the rest of my blanks are! The papers and rhinestones are from my stash, I just felt she needed a bit of bling! The papers were from my stash, I did have a bit of a paper spree as the craft chop behind my new house was closing down and papers had 70% off! and so i had to treat myself to a paper rack too! 

The sentiment is on the stamp, I was thinking about cutting it down so I could place it anywhere but I really like it when I stamp it and it comes out like it does,  I messed up on a few occasions hence the shadow around here, I have to say after three weeks of not colouring, its quite hard to pick up from where you left off! 

This is a tag that I purchased from someone on Facebook, I am useless at making tags and so someone made a few up for me, I am going to try and see if I can get some more made in different colours, it was just by chance that the colours matched so well!
