I'm an oldie but a goodie!

Helloooooo! Are you enjoying meeting our new digi team? In case you didn't read the exciting news we're now going to be running our challenges weekly alternating between the teams so we can also have a banter with each other too lol! And whats more there is an extra special prize on this week as the challenge blog is a year old yay!! Pop over HERE and have a look for a chance to win a $20 voucher for sweet pea stamps plus Teresa has added an extra prize of 8 digi stamps!

As the new team are showing their mugshots this week I'd best keep up with the trend even if I am an oldie! I hate having my photo taken! This is me looking mumsy with my 2 littlest, Ethan just turned 4 and Molly 2 and a half :) Thats quite tame for me lol! My hair changes colour more times than a chameleon, was black and pink recently!

As mentionned previously there are some fab new digi stamps in store and this one is Valentines night by Sara Burrier, reminds me a bit of my two! I've used a variety of mediums, mainly promarkers and coloursoft pencil and then some sakura stardust and distress ink. I dont usually do green but there seems to be an awful lot of green challenges this week so I've taken the plunge!

Now this one I challenged myself a little. I know theres a growing trend for colouring images on Kraft paper so I recently got some to try it out and this is my first attempt. Its all coloursoft pencils, what do you think? Also a completely different style to my norm but I do like to challenge myself sometimes to step out of the comfort zone, that way you might discover a flair for something. Actually it was our Sheila who's just joined the team who sent my my first copic pen so I could add shadows around the images! (I switched to promarkers after 3 months!)

This is a rubber stamp by Lemon shortbread called "Petal Melody" Isnt she just beautiful!

And finally another Melody I made a week or so back called Cocktail Melody, isn't she just fabulous dahhhhling! She's also great for practicing colouring hair on!

Well thats all from me, pop back tomorrow to meet another new teamie! Also a quick mention of you're on Facebook, we have a site there too HERE, please feel free to upload your crafts and me stamped projects, we'd love to see them and click LIKE!!
