Butterflies and Pigtalis...

Morning all, well I have been a busy bee! Will have a post to share a bit later with you for the wedding invitations I have made! But in-between all of those I have been making the effort to colour for me a bit more! I have quite a few birthdays in january and febuary and so I want to try and get on top of all of the cards! So far I have managed to complete january! Not bad for me, to say I normally wait till the afternoon of someones birthday to make their card! 

This is the gorgeous Butterflies and Pigtails, yes your guessed it Sugar Nellie! She is one of the first one I brought and she has not had the use she should have! Im noticing that I'm going through a 'funny colour' phase at the moment! Im not sure what is happening with me! Oranges and Greens, what will it be next! The paper is from my stash, I have so much paper at the moment!!! 

Again, more flowers had to be put on here, while making this card I said to hubby that i think I need to get some more flowers, he looked and laughter and told me that I need more flowers like he needs more spanners.  Now he is the one who told me you can never have too many spanners.... So I will assume he agrees! 

I love this punch! One of the punches I go back to all the time, I think I need to buy a new one soon! Its a kinda giving up the ghost! But while it works, it works! I went around the edge of the butterfly with diamond stickles to give more detail! 

Here she is, I just love her! I have coloured her using my faber castle pencils and zest oil over the top! Her skin was coloured using my copics's E02, E00, E000 and R20 for her cheeks! I would like to enter this card to the following challenges;

Flutterby wednesdays - Anything Goes 
Whimsical Wednesdays - Anything Goes
Cupcake Craft Room - Anything Goes

Hope to see you soon
