I love my Speccies!!

Unless you've been living in a non-crafty bubble these past few weeks I'm sure you will have heard mention of the latest marker pens on the block- Spectrum Noirs which are made by Crafter's Companion. I have been playing with them on & off all week and I'll post a few samples after the card;

Its an Elzybells Sunday today!

I am so gutted that Elzybells has closed as I have far too few of their stamps so I have to content myself with grabbing them on Ebay as and when they appear! The papers are by Pink Petticoat & I colored the image with my Speccies.

Can you tell I love the turquoise lol

Till next time :)

It's candy time!

The lovely Marianne has a mega candy giveaway to celebrate reaching 1000 followers- bit of a difference to my 22! She has some beautiful cards on her blog so go and have a look.

Here is a peek at the candy she is giving away :)

Music Saves My Soul Saturday :)

Well I haven't made any cards this week as I've been really busy at work, but I've been playing lots with my new Spectrum Noir pens and I have to say that I'm really impressed with them- they work really well with my Promarkers too which is a bonus as all of the 24 packs of Speccies are sold out at the moment!

Anyway in the absence of a card, I am posting a link to one of my favorite songs- it might be a bit emo for some people but I guess deep down I'm a bit of an emo chick!

I don't just listen to depressing music- promise!

Late night crafting :)

Its 1.15am, I'm up in 5 hours and what am I doing? Blogging!! Why is it that when you have to get up for work you can't sleep but when its the weekend you're asleep by 10pm??? After tossing and turning for what felt like hours I decided to get up and do a bit of crafting- that was at 11.30 (oops!).

This is what I made:

Isn't she gorgeous? I bought her ages ago from Kenny K- if you haven't seen his digi's yet you're missing a treat- his designs are so fun. Papers are from a DCWV stack, Garden Party I think? I colored the image with Promarkers and added a doily die cut and some flowers.

Right, I am off back to bed to see if I can sleep (again)

Night all xx
