Smile!

Hello lovely people,

Is that some sunshine I see this morning?!  Maybe I will get some gardening time today and if not, another day in my crafty haven beckons!

Today we have a new challenge for you at As You Like It and our theme this time is...

YOUR FAVOURITE...
MARKERS, INKS OR PENCILS
...and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite!

Our sponsor this time is Digi Stamp Boutique with a $10 voucher


My favourite colouring medium is Copic markers because of the detail and depth of contrast I can get in the shading...on a good day!

I am really enjoying experimenting with my Inktense pencils but I can't see them ever replacing my beloved Copics.

I am pleased to say that it felt like a good colouring day for me when I coloured this fabulous image; doesn't she look so happy and carefree?

I have to say that being outdoors and being active makes me happy and is a good escape from any problems or worries.

I am sat here looking out of my window waiting for the grass to dry so that I can cut it...not sure it's going to happen though, it's really dull and damp here in Dorset!! I suppose I could go out on my bike instead like this gorgeous little lass, such beautiful papers and your colouring is perfect xx

I've never seen you have a bad coloring day!!! This card is no different. Love that you design puts this cutie in the spot light. I have been playing some with pencils too, I'm afraid they require more talent than I currently have, but fun never the less.

This is fabulous Kat.... and when I saw it I wanted to shout 'weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee' like I used to do when freewheeling on my bike down a hill (LOTS of years ago!) I still make a similar noise when we're on the A59 out of Harrogate - don't know if you remember but there's a great big dip and hill up the other side on the way to Fewston - and if you get to just the right speed and there's no one else about..... well yes... I am a big kid at heart!

Enough rambling...... your card is fabulous.... ad always!

Big hugs
