Vamp me

Hi there, I would just like to say a big "Hello and Welcome"  to my new follower/friends, it's great that you find the time to come and visit me and I'm truely grateful when you leave me a comment. 
Todays card is just for fun really, I bought this digi .tiddly inks vamp-me before Christmas but only just found time to print it off, I thought it would make a lovely Valentines card.

I coloured it with copics, used Basic Grey papers black card and ribbon with a silver ribbon slider, some clear gems in the corner and the sentiment I printed on my computer. I also have a confession to make, I cut it out using my nestie and accidently cut off the signature, but it is defo a  tiddly inks image and if you click on  Here it will take you to their shop.

Anyway it was one of my friends Birthday last week and she just loves animals so I thought this great digi coexist from mo's digital pencil ,  I love all of Mo's digi's they are amazing, just need to find time to practice colouring fur, never got the hang of that, must go on my never ending list of things to do in 2013.

I coloured it with copics used Basic grey paper nestie, LOTV sentiment stamp and a wooden mushroom, I kept it quite simple with the image being big.

Friday Sketch Challenge #34

Hi there, here we have the first sketch of 2013 from  friday sketch challenge
This great sketch was designed by the lovely Marie, it's a great one for using up all those scraps you have just mounting up in the box. One of my resolutions is to try and make my bit box a bit smaller, and I don't mean by throwing it away either.

We also have a great new sponsor The stampfairy who was very generous and gave all the DT an image to use.
I chose patches in love he is so cute. I printed him out in grey for a change, coloured with copics, used K & Co paper's , prima flowers and pearls that was a Christmas pressie.
