This is really an honour for me as I find myself amongst some amazing colourists and it is very humbling to be part of the team....and what a lovely bunch they are too!
So on to my first card for the team, and this week we are sponsored by Dr Digi.
He is quite a comical character don't you think?
So - there is my very first card for the Colour Crazy Team. I hope you will come over and join our challenge - remember you can colour with anything you like, so don't be shy!
Bye for now.

Rather than doing an image containing a family, I decided to opt for a family related sentiment :-)
The cute little image that I have chosen is from the Scruffy Little Kitten range by Crafters Companion. I love the toussled hair which is soooooo easy to colour as you basically just squiggle!
So there we have it! Now I'm looking forward to seeing your interpretation of family over on the challenge blog, so don't forget to join me there!
Bye for now, and thanks for visiting.

Our sponsor this week is Dr Digi and they have a whole range of Christmas inspired digital images.
I love this image of him updating his naughty and nice list, but I found it might be a bit of a challenge because there was a lot of white in there. I tackled this by using variations on whitish shades using my Spectrum Noir pens.
So for the beard and notice board - Ice Gray 1 and 2
For the shirt - some of the paler grays from the BG (Brown Gray) spectrum.
Finally, I decided to make the scroll of paper look like parchment, so I went for EB1 and EB2 to get that look.
Finally, I wanted to make it look like he was in a room in Lapland so I found some digi paper that looks like floor boards and paired it with a beautiful paper from Polkadoodles Winnie's Winter Wonderland, which I thought made wonderfully festive wall paper!
So that is me, one step closer to Christmas!
I can't wait to see all of your lovely makes, so be sure to come and join us over at Fab N Funky.
Thanks very much for visiting today.

For my card, I have decided to go fairly clean and simple, and i have picked a lovely image from Saturated Canary. I just love her raggety wings!
I have used my dotty stamp all around the edge to frame her and thrown in some extra dots of clear glitter, just because I could!
Finally, my lovely sentiment is a Tonic die. I particularly love this one because it is so delicate and swirly, plus it cuts beautifully too.
So that's my card for today. I hope you like it, and that you will join us over at Cute Card Thursday. We look forward to seeing al your lovely creations!
Thanks for stopping by.

So, we have an brand new challenge at Fab n Funky this week and our theme is 'more than one fold' sponsored by All Dressed Up, so I have gone with a stepper card for this theme.
For this little cutie pie, I coloured her with Spectrum Illustrators, and then use my Prismacolour pencils to get all the tiny details on the swing and flowers.
Finally I matched her up with some lovely colourful paper from the NitWits Hello Sunshine digital set.
Thanks for coming to visit today, and I look forward to seeing you over at Cute Card Thursday.

Hi there. I am back with my DT card for Fab n Funky this week, where the theme is Fantasy....so fairys, unicorns anything goes if it would fit on to a fantasy world.
I have used this little cutie from All Dressed Up. How tiny she must be to sit underneath those flowers!
I have kept it all fairly simple, to focus on that lovely little fairy. But of course I just had to add some fairy dust, with a splash of glitter here and there!
So I hope you will come and join us over at Fab n Funky. I am hoping to see lots more lovely fairies!
Bye for now and thanks for visiting.

This image for Sherri Baldy fitted just perfectly as my friend is Irish, she has a special waist coat that she uses for Morris dancing, and of course the clover represents good luck.
My backing papers are from Nitwits - I thought that the heart pattern on the right looked a bit like a four leaf clover too.
Four once I had this card prepared in good time, and it was lovely to be able to really take my time and enjoy the process for a change!
That's all from me now...time to hit the Easter cards...yes I am back to my good old 'getting behind' ways once again! Thank good ness I have a week off work! :-)
Thanks for visiting, and enjoy your weekend.

These are so easy to colour and such fun too, as you can add in your own lettering to personalise the message, so I decided to put the recipients names in by digitally adding the letters using Serif Craft Artist. However, you could easily do this by hand with a micron pen if your writing is neat.
Hope you like what you have seen today. I look forward to seeing your Easter designs over at Cute Card Thursday.
Bye for now.
