Hello Everyone..
WOW! two posts today and nearly forgot both of them..I'm so

We have a new challenge starting up at Crafty Little Fairies and this month we would like to see a hand coloured image and the challenge is  "Not a Square"..

There was a lot of uncoloured images on cards last month and that's

A shaped card for me is like asking me to run a marathon or just down to the letter box...but I came up with this tiny card..

I used an oval scallop die from Couture Creations, cut it twice and stuck them together for the card base...the cut 2 oval spellbinders dies and stamped the LOTV image on the white one..

This little lass is gorgeous and I coloured her with Copics this time...and added a vellum sentiment embossed in white.. from Kaisercrafts..

The berries off a Christmas decoration and flowers and bow from my stash..

Please take a look at my teamies fabulous shaped cards HERE

Thanks so much for stopping by..there's another post under this one if you want to peak..

See you later...

Oh Chrissy you really made me laugh, when you say making a different shaped card is like running a marathon I so totally agree but we let ourselves be challenged every single time and in the end we do pull it off don't we ? LOL You certainly did because this is a gorgeous creation. I love the berries on it too. Big hug from Veerle xxx

You're just a complete whiz bang genius with all coloring mediums. Your copic colored gal is gorgeous and I truly love the scalloped oval you've framed her in. I can also say that I have not ceased in being completely giddy about vellum embossed sentiments...OMG...beautiful!!
Now, go get some well deserved rest.

This is the sweetest little card, love the shape, it suits this image beautifully! And I love vellum, I often forget to plan space for a sentiment, but vellum makes it so much easier to fit it in.
