My first saucy easel card using the beautiful Heidi from Victoria Case

Hi Everyone

Today I would like to show you this fun, beautiful girl called Heidi who is from Victoria Case, when I first saw her I knew she was just perfect for a friends 40th!  She was fun to colour not sure I have her just right but I am fairly pleased, I so suck at male cards, not going to say how long this one took lol trying to find the right bits, really wanted a music note/guitar charm but did not have one.   Don't forget our Mad for Markers Challenge this month Red and/or Pink R's/RV's, I chose Bright Pink not Purple lol.

I have tried a new colour hair combo

I dotted gold spica in the beer for bubble effect, then added special effects to the pots, also her eyes, ear-ring and the trinket on the necklace the wooden numbers were coloured using a clear Gelly Roll Pen

A closer look at the pocket to hold the money

Liebster Blog Award

Hi all

I recently discovered a new blogger and we became followers and the next thing I get is this lovely award, I love blog land (would love to spend more time drooling over the gorgeous inspiration I see when I visit lol), but most of all I love being amongst the friendliest and nicest people around.
People who generously share their artistry and ideas with each other and who you probably wouldn't even know you if they passed you in the street but here in blogland they become your best friends! I love how the internet can do that.

The lovely talented Kasey has passed this award onto me

I did a little research and Liebster is German and translates to the English word “dearest”or” favorite”.  It’s meant for up-and-coming blogs with less than "200 followers".  You need to pass the award onto five bloggers and let them know.  I would like to pass this award on to the following inspriational blogs, hope you can check out their beautiful work.

This is the hardest part passing the award on but these are the ladies I would like to pass it on to:

Ashlee  - I love her gorgeous colouring and creations

Davi - - I love the variety of gorgeous flowers she creates

Merry  -  I love the variety of inspirational creations and personal photos of travels etc

Samantha  -  Our newest addition to the M4M, more beautiful colouring and creations
