I did promise you a new card....

Well here I am back with a New card!  If you missed the second lot of faves then you can scroll down to the post below.
This is a card order I was asked to do for a non girly girl so pink was not an option!  I love this image "Janessa" and this is my first time colouring her.  The paper is from Raspberry Road from my stash and the butterflies I have had for ages and never used because they had shimmery holographic edges, but I just trimmed them off and voila perfectly lovely little butterflies!

Here are a few snaps from Christmas day..........the girls had a fab day and we did it all again yesterday when my little sis and partner Dave came over from the East coast!

I will leave you with a pic of my wee jar of captured fairies that Lucy gave me! They only flutter around the jar at night time! 

Some more faves

Okay sorry but I just had to share some more....I spent ages looking through them all...some I had even forgotten I had made!  I promise I will be back with a brand new card later XX

A bunch of my faves...

It's that time of year now where everyone is sharing their favourite makes from the year...I have found it impossible to narrow mine down so have made a few collages of some of my faves....I maybe back with more!

The weather here is horrid...howling gales and rain so I am off to move the mountain of kids presents blocking the entrance to my cubby and going to have a play with the lovely new brushes I got for my Christmas xx

Saturated Canarys Sleeping Beauty...

Well?? How many Saturated Canary Digis did you all buy??
Please don't pay too much attention to these photos...they are awful!  My camera is not connecting up to my laptop (I have ordered a new cable and am hoping that fixes the problem and it is not the actual camera!) so I have used Lucy's camera for these and it's not the best of cameras.
I have had this card sitting for a while now it's the last one I made before my skin got bad, still smothering the horrid cream on so I haven't been in my cubby as I don't want to spoil any of my papers with big oily fingerprints!
I have used the gorgeous "Sleeping Beauty" for this card and I have used my Promarkers and pencils to colour her...I love her beautiful big lashes!

Hope you like!! Please leave me a comment and I will come visit!XOXO!

So you have no excuse! Lol  We only ask that you use a Saturated Canary Digi stamp OR a Simply Sassy rubber stamp and with Krista heading for world domination who doesn’t have one of those or indeed all of them?!! lol

I have used the fab Queen of Hearts for my little piece of “art”…not sure what to call it!
I have had these little wooden hearts for ages that I found on Ebay…..painted up with white paint and then inked with Walnut Stain…the papers are from Summer Time Designs 
The hearts I have coloured and then painted with Crackle paint and the little tiny playing cards were from a Christmas cracker last year!
I have coloured this gorgeous image with my Promarkers and pencils for shading and the seam binding has been stained with Walnut Stain DI.  And finally some little red gems to finish off!

Saturated Canary Challenge #2

Wow what a load of wonderful entries we had for our very first challenge...thank you to all you lovely ladies who joined in the fun!
Now I have scheduled this post and I hope Mr Blogger is behaving and has indeed posted it.  As we speak I shall be en route over to the East coast of Scotland to just outside Banchory with all the troops to visit my little sis and her partner for a few days!
But anyway enough waffling from me.... lets get on with  Saturated Canarys second challenge !  Which this fortnight is to use stitching real or faux!
I have used Violet for my card....coloured with my promarkers and pencils...the stitching I have done by hand as I don't have a sewing machine....I normally just use a pen and doodle some stitching but for some crazy reason I thought I would hand stitch!
Head on over to the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog for all the details!

Saturated Canary "Hand Me Downs"

I found this great tutorial here on shading behind the wanted to give it a go...think I have maybe been a bit heavy handed with the blue but for a first go I am pretty pleased with the result.
This is another gorgeous Saturated Canary Digi stamp "Hand Me Downs"
She has been coloured with my promarkers again and a pencil for some shading......can you make out the tiny pearls? I ordered some of ebay in various sizes 99p each and there are loads in each bag!.....the tiny ones are 1mm I could barely see them!

I will be disappearing for a few days...going over to the east coast to Banchory to visit my wee sis...soooo looking forward to getting away for a couple of days!
