Well Hello To You All

And a big "HELLO" to my new followers - Regina and Lena - thank you for choosing to follow my work, I am very flattered.

I hope you are seeing this as it is a scheduled post as I am away at the GNPE in Harrogate this weekend so hopefully Mr Blogger will behave.  No doubt I will spend an absolute fortune even though my list of things I need is very small ;o)

So it's Saturday and it's challenge time over at Totally Gorjuss.  This weeks theme is "Something Old" and our generous sponsor is Heather's Hobbie Haven.  So, to be in with a chance to win a £10 voucher to spend in their on-line shop get your entries in and as always, do check out what the wonderful DT girlies have made to whet your appetite.

Here is the card I have made:

As you can probably tell, this card was made for someone who is quite old and it was made by me who is relatively old ;o)

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Mo Manning - The Engineer

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / N0 (shading)
Shirt:  E53 E52 E51
Dungarees:  E44 E43 E42
Shoes, Hat and Scarf:  E49 E47 E44 E43
Train:  E49 E47 E44 E43 E42
Rails:  E44 E43 E42
Steam:  E42 E41

I have outlined the image with Antique Linen Distress Ink
The papers have been edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink

And that's it.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend - I may be back at a later stage to show you my purchases from Harrogate ;o)

Beautifully colored as always, and who doesn't love Mo Manning images?! I haven't found one I don't like yet ... what do you relatively old? psssttt, we don't talk about age like that .. we're as young as we feel :) Although, today my neck aches, so does my back ... ok, maybe feelin' a little old ;) Hugs, Kelly

Lovely to meet you again on Saturday, it's always the best part of my day when I meet up with all the lovely crafty ladies.
