Girls About Town!

This is my first card made from my recent digi downloads from Charmed Cards and Crafts.

When I first saw Karen's Copic Candy on 'Crafty Goings On' I thought it was the ideal excuse to pop over to Charmed Crafts to buy some more of these fab images, as I'd then get 2 entries into the draw :)

I couldn't decide which ones I wanted (as usual!) so got I Mikey, Girls About Town & the Cats!

My first 2 sets of Promarkers came last week (Skin & Brights) and this is the first card I've made using them! As much as I love the shades of the Promarkers I'm saving for the Copics too!!! Is that greedy???

My colouring's not perfect - her jacket collar has run over into her hair :(
I think I need one of those magnifying glass/lamp thingies, usually used for needlepoint - hubby thinks I just need my eyes tested! I'll keep practicing, and I've booked an eye test for Friday!

I really enjoyed using this image - she is gorgeous to colour - even with my limited shades at the moment! The sentiments that go with these images are fab too! Hubby even commented how true the one is by Erma Bombeck - 'The odds of going to the store for a loaf of bread and coming out with only a loaf of bread are three billion to one.' I might argue 5 billion to one actually!

My new MS Doily Lace punch arrived this morning so I just had to use it, added some gorgeous lace, ribbon, flower and a shoe charm.
I'm not sure whether to Gloss her yet - I love the look it gives, so probably will later!

Off to make a couple of cards up with the Mikey's I've coloured :)


  1. This is gorgeous Carol - such a classy and fun card. Your colouring is amazing and I don't blame you for wanting the copics too. I now own 21 one of the - only 100 and something to go lol.

    Have a great night and thanks for sharing :D
