Blooming Marvellous!

This is my final post for today, please scroll down to see my Delightful Challelges & Willow Sketchie creations! Hugs xx

Today is such a busy day for me, with making three DT posts, but ya know what I wouldn't have it any other way. I just love my crafting, even if my colouring isn't as good as some peoples I still love looking back at images I have coloured & thinking WOW my colouring is so much better than it was then! lol!!
Well the image on my card today is one of those, I had this stamp in my goodie bag from my
 Crafty Weekend last year, I have already booked my space for this year & can't wait.....if you want to have a look at what its all about & maybe join us pop over here & take a nosey around!
 As I was saying before I got side tracked, I coloured this stamp up while I was away & never used it, thought about using it on this card, but oh my colouring was bad! Even going back to October my colouring (well in my eyes lol) has improved so much!! I think these Flexies make such a difference...!

Right ok back to MAWTT,  this week our challenge is

hehe I understand your hesitation with your coloring as I too feel like mine is never as good as everyone's I see and I too like to look back and see how I have improved, though your coloring is perfect to me, especially the hair (I struggle with hair:( so your one of 'those some people' in my eyes lol But all things aside, your card is gorgeous as is your coloring. Looking forward to crafting with you over the next month at MAWTT.

Nothing at all wrong with your colouring Mrs don't put yourself down! You're right about one thing though - how much all our craftin' has changed, before I started blogging I hardly ever used stamps and colouring now I don't make a card without it!
Love love love Larry the ladybug and your rolled Rose on the willow card is gorgeous - really different to the usual shape and this card is lush too Shell, I love the splash of bright pink swirls in fact all the colours on it are a perfect match!
Hope your all better now
