Have you ever made a card and without any hesitation it!!...?? Well, this is one of those for me. I'm not sure if it's the image, pp, colours or all of the above but every time I look at it I have a happy {sigh}. Of course you might not think that lol but that's ok...I'm happy :-D
I bought this Basic Grey pp a couple of weeks ago in Craft World...this was the one that came in 3 colour ways and I had to have all 3! Nothing new there I'm afraid lol. When I chose Guilty Jack for my next sample I thought of this pp straight away. What do you think?
{sigh} lol
This picture is in the wrong order ...oh well. I love making little sentiments and punching them out with my SU! word window punch (I hope that's what it's called)

Do you think Jack looks guilty? Have I miss-named him? I coloured him with a combination of Copics, Promarkers and Prisma Pencils. I added a little bit of glossy accents on his running shoes, the J on his top and the centre of each flower. Of course I had to have a bit of glitter so sprinkled it on the flower centres.

Since I always colour the hair of my images brown I thought I'd try blonde for a change. I don't think I did very well but will keep practising. Don't you just want to kiss those cheeks silly!!

I have one more image of Jack to colour up....make sure you take advantage of the special pre-order price of £5.50 which lasts until Sunday.

I'll be demoing at Craft World on September 4th and 5th so if you're in the area make sure you pop in and say hi :-D

That's it for today...have a good one!

Catch ya later x

He's such a cutie! Think Guilty Jack suits him just fine! Those papers are just fab, I don't often go for Basic Grey, but sometimes they are gorgeous!
