A bit of Mo with a Dash of Tim

Afternoon all, I apologise for how quiet it has been here, I have been ill and so have the kids, at last the energy is back and i have managed to make a couple of cards!! I have been waiting in all morning for the gas man to come... still no luck! But at least he hasn't disconnected the old boiler, so I still have heating and hot water! 

Onto what I have managed to do.... Well my 1st aim was that i was going to make  a small card... Ha ha ha, I can't seem to make smaller than 8x8 at the moment! I don't know what has got into me! I used an image i coloured last week using a colour combo on the make It Crafty Facebook page! 

R29, R27, E27 (I used E29 as I don't have E27) and W7.... 

i brought this stunning lady last week from Mo Manning, I have seen her about loads and just had to colour her! At 1st I wasn't too happy with how she had turned out but after people commenting on just seeing her coloured she has frown on me! And I'm using the colour combo more and more!! here is is a bit closer.... 

The rest of the stuff used was my stash, the paper is one that I had loads of scraps of and just used them up, the red was a plain bazzill.  Her skin was coloured using E02, E00, E000.  Im loving my flowers at the moment, I know you don't tend to put flowers on a male card, but they kinda just went with this one! 

After LOADS of searching I caved in and brought the TH Odds and Ends tickets to go with the die, I have searched for ages trying to find others that fit.  A lot of people had said they didn't like the wording on them, but I kinda like them.  I didn't cut these with my die as I need to find my adaptor plate to use it, so I cut it by hand! 

Well I hope you like my card! Quite impressed with how this has turned out! I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;
