Hi everyone, I hope our friends 'over the pond' had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday, I certainly enjoyed seeing all their wonderful creations when I was blog hopping!
For today's card I have used this week's Creative Inspiration's sketch (and I found it to be such a fabulous one that I'll definitely be using it again!) and I'm also entering this into the Simon Says challenge of 'Winter Love'.
The Winter Love involved is mine......for these adorable vintage Penny Black images, I love them and they're such a joy to colour! This one is called 'Best Christmas Tree' isn't she just the sweetest little darling?
* Image - Penny Black 'Best Christmas Tree'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Nesties - 'Standard Circles'
* Ribbons - K & Co 'Smitten' paper lace
* Sentiment - 'Daisy & Dandelion' peel offs
* Everything else from my stash
I can't believe how early it's started getting dark now, not that it's much brighter even in daylight hours. It all makes any photography very difficult, so I've gone back to using the scanner if possible.
If my cards are too bulky for that I'll have to whisper 'sweet nothings' to DH again as I STILL can't get a decent photograph with the camera!
I've come to the conclusion that this is mainly because my eyesight has got so appallingly bad (I hate not being able to see anything without glasses!)
Of course a small part may be down to my senior brain not being able to understand new things and no longer being able to remember anything I did once know...
...actually forget that, as the more I think of it the more unlikely it seems that this could be the reason lol!
Thank you for the comments you continue to leave me, they make my day (plus I really do need all the encouragement I can get these days!)
Now, what was I saying about senior moments?....
I also meant to enter this for this month's challenge at By the Cute and Girly which is 'Winter Wonderland' Dohhh!

You are definitely at your best when you are colouring images in Chrissie and you seem to get just the right combination every time. Love this one and I know what you mean about struggling with taking a decent photo - all I can say is thank heavens for digital cameras given the number I sometimes take to get one half decent one! lol!
Chrissie, this is just gorgeous. I love the image and your colour scheme is perfect too. Love that sketch, maybe have a go at it later
