Good Morning!
Went for a full intense day of Copic colouring last Sunday given by Faye   at the Holiday Inn, Brighouse .  A Christmas gift from Me to Me! I've been wanting to go on one of her courses for nearly 12 months, but, everyone's been to far. To say I enjoyed it is an understatement..I Loved it..Faye's one very talented lady and the day went toooo  fast. I've come home buzzing..If I get chance to go on another one? I will at the drop of a hat..Also good to be with like minded Crafters! Can be a tad quiet time in your own little space.

Good Afternoon!
Hubbies Christmas present from our Son, was a an  invitation for two
to have  meal and then watch the Footie! Afterwards to meet the players!
Okay! Not my kinda scene lol..Well the food is, but, sadly nothing else...So he's gone with his brother.
Gave me time to play.

I've been tidying my Craft room out this week and discovered my old sewing machine!
Believe it or not it worked straight away, hence I've stitched my card together, pleased it still works!

Good Morning!
This card has been made a couple of weeks!
It was for our daughter who sometimes {but, not often} takes a peek at my blog..
Now I know if I'd have shown this one? She might have guessed it was for her, because it's 'To Someone Special' so that's what it says on the sentiment.

I know this is a Hangler Strangler stamp because someone sent it to me many moons ago and I've only just managed to part with her. 
Coloured with Copics..LOts of glitter on her little wings. I've used a Gelly Roll pen  on her hat/flowers....Papers/embellishments from stash.
The flowers and sentiment have been coloured with distress ink Spun Sugar.
Poppy, Spellbinder, Crafts Express and Kreaxions dies used.
