A Very Fancy Little Lady.

Well my socialising is over and done with for a while...I don't think I've been out for so many nights in a fortnight since I was a teenager! It's been a fabulous couple of weeks but I've missed my craft room, ink and rubber. It's been so long since I sat and made anything and I was going a little crazy, so I made sure I had a little playtime set aside over the weekend.

My neck is considerably better but it's still painful when I sit colouring for any length of time...I think my desk needs to be higher so I'm not bent over so much.

This little cutie was sitting patiently waiting to be inked up...she does have impeccable manners, and she is a delight to colour.
Fancy Marci has been coloured with the usual mix of DI re-inkers and markers.
The gorgeous papers are Maja Design Vintage Spring basics...yet again.
Sorry but I absolutely love them and there's still some left in the pad so you can expect to see more of them.
Not much in the way of embellies...just for a change lol.
Just a few pearls and a sentiment from PTI stamped onto MFT Mini Tabs.

On another note...since Sky changed their email to Sky Yahoo I've had nothing but trouble.
The last straw came when all my email contacts disappeared last week, so I'm using gmail now.
I have the odd few contacts in my gmail address book but I've lost the majority of my friends email address's....though that might be good news to some of my pals lol!
Thanks for looking.


  1. This is so beautifully coloured Elaine

  3. Such a beautiful creation, Elaine! Love the purple and how you've colored this cutie! And your card really needs no more embellies - the image and papers are effective enough.
    Hugs, Anja
