Top Tip Tuesday #67 - Anything Goes And News!

EDIT - Well we are settling well in the house, net not 100% at the moment so it keeps logging in and out! Will hope to add some pictures soon!! 

 Good Morning!

Well here we are the first challenge of 2012 for Top Tip Tuesday, I have to say I don't know where last year went, its flew by, only feels like yesterday that I wished everyone a happy 2011!.  As I have scheduled this post I can't say what I'm actually doing but probably getting the house ready for the re-wiring that due to start on January 9th! We are between houses as we have access to stay at my MIL's for a few days while our house is turned into dust city! 

OK so onto the challenge! 

This week....

We have some wonderful sponsors this week

Ok so onto some inspiration for you, not that I think you need any as this one is so nice and simple for 2012! 
Oh how I love anything goes... although I do wish I had more 'get up and go' to create something a bit different!!! 
This is the gorgeous Hand Me Downs from Saturated Canary, Im obsessed with these digs, I have a little unit of draws where I keep odds and bits and I have a draw full of coloured digs from SC - and another draw full of ones to colour! I can't get enough of colouring them! 

This is a card I created for any occasion, I have to say I was so happy with the way her dress turned out, it was the 1st attempt and the green and pink matched rather nicely! Im finding now that I'm getting used to colouring with copics and now want to start adding more of the sketch markers to my collection! although I do miss my pro markers! 

Here she is up-close, now as I coloured her a while ago I can't remember what colours I used, I even added pink in her hair - now that was a mad moment!! I was also very happy with the way her hair turned out! - all in all i think this is on of my best colourings to date, and yes I will make my head get big but I'm feeling more positive about my colouring and my style now! Its not always how long something takes to do, but its the end result! 

Im loving these little bows, keep adding them to bits these days, I think its because I can't tie bows, its quite funny I normally wait for my mum to come over so she can tie a bow for me (she is a champion bow tie person in my mind!) - but these are so simple and so effective! 

Well there you have it! I hope you like her, I think she may have to be one of my 'keeps'! Stick her on my craft room wall when I get time! I would like to enter this card to the following challenges;

Cupcake craft Room - Anything Goes
iCopic Challenge - Smooth/Shiny Hair
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
The pink Elephant - Anything Goes
Pile It On - Anything Goes

Well I hope I may have inspired you to join us this week, we are after all easing you into the new year the best way possible with
