Slowly but surely I'm getting there....

A big welcome to my new followers and thank you everyone who has put my blog candy in their sidebars....I have joined a few challenges and it has certainly brought more traffic - thank you for the tip !!

I made this card a few weeks ago for a friend - I printed on kraft card stock - I had to search the internet for a card that would go through my printer - I found some 170gsm @ and it arrived within 48 hours - no more paper jams for me !!

I printed LCI Winestool Nikki and coloured her in with my new Prisma pencils.
I computer generated the sentiment....and hotfixed gems on the corners.
The backing paper is from Stampin Up which I stitched
direct onto the card blank.
I have done better photography - I'm sorry !!

a sneaky peek at the inside

I would like to enter the following challenges
The design team at Ladybug Crafts Ink are back and ready to go with a
new release and a blog hop.
 Lots of fun and prizes to be won so do check back on Tuesday 29th January.
Hope it's not too cold with's -3 degrees here a day of crafting for me.

  2. That's one thingi haven't tried - colouring on Kraft. Looks fabulous

  3. Although not a kraft fan myself this is a great card and great papers, I had this image as a digi but seem to have lost it, may have to buy it again.
