Holidays and a Card

I've slowed down a bit on the blogging and crafting front as I'm wanting to spend some quality time with my family before my daughters head back to school in September. 24 hours is never enough time to get done or do everything I want.

Having said that, I will be posting a couple of cards this week only because I've been working on bits and pieces for a while but the posts will be very very short as I only have 2 weeks left with my girls before they go back to school.

Here's a card I made for my niece's 6th birthday. Stamp is from Stamping Bella and DP is My Mind's Eye - love this stuff. Image stamped on Neenah Smooth with Memento ink and coloured with Copics. Other cardstock is Stampin Up and Ive used a Martha Stewart border punch and Spellbinder die on the inside of the card. It's a basic card but it always takes me a while to work out a layout and colour scheme I like. This is my first card colouring black hair. Boy oh boy did I practice - my 5th attempt for this card alone no wonder I haven't been posting much (LOL). Still lots of practicing ahead when it comes to colouring anything in black.

Thanks for stopping by to have a peek and have a marvelous Saturday,
Maria
