Just sitting around

Thank goodness it's Friday!!  Whoo hoo :-)  Has this week dragged or is it just me?  Maybe because now the clocks have gone back it's not really properly light when I get to work in the morning and dark again when I leave - maybe I'm suffering daylight withdrawal :-)  I don't suppose the cold and the wet are helping much either, and OMG it was so windy here last night I swear the house was shaking!!

Although my mojo is still popping in and out I had a go at making a card last night and I am reasonably pleased with this one - I think I needed a bit of brightness to lift me from the gloom :-)

The image of the girl is a digi by Kenny K - I adore her boots, they really seem to pop :-)  and the stone wall I have sat her on is a proper stamp by Molly Blooms - I quite surprised myself at my colouring of both images tonight - as ever they look much better IRL than in the pics, but comparing my work when I first got my copics I can definitely see an improvement!!  (This whole me being able to colour in, and images look OK enough is still a strange concept for me!!)

As I was putting this together it looked like something was missing, so did a quick stitch round the edges and I think it looks all the better for it :-)  The leaves behind the flower are cut on the cuttlebug and the gem in the centre is a little red heart button which is so cute, but naturally it's the only one I have, so will be on the hunt for some more!!

Images:  Kenny K "Queens Cutie; Molly Blooms "Stone Wall"
Papers: Kraft-esque CS; Bo Bunny "Pedal Pushers" and "Alissa" papers; Bo Bunny "Pink Punch" Double Dot CS;
Flowers, Ribbon and Gems from Stash
