Petal Lu Challenge ..... White Flowers

Its time, once again for our Petal Lu challenge.
March is all about beautiful white flowers so today, I'm sharing my Monochrome Magnolia gift bag.

The white blossoms are just beautiful and will make any project just that little bit more special.

I have coloured wrapped heart Tilda with the Ice Grey Spectrum Noir pens and then finished her off with the colourblend pencils and a touch of white gel pen.

Check out our challenge blog to see the other beautiful samples made by the girls and be to be tempted to get some of your own stunning handmade flowers.

What colour will be April be about?

Arwyn's 10th birthday

Yesterday was my beautiful nieces 10th birthday.  I can't believe how fast the time as gone.
I made her a card using one of my favourite stamps, Butterfly Marci from La La Land Crafts.
I also used a selection of La La Land Craft dies.  The papers are from Clarity 'sweet dreams'.
Isn't she just gorgeous!  I used my new Spectrum Noir illustrator and bullet nib pens to colour her up and then finished off with a hint of colourblend pencil.
