Just for You

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
After a lovely morning at work, and a nasty visit to the dentist and after this,  I got to visit my good friend Polly, Polly aka Artfulwings, has just grabbed herself one of those fabulous DT spots with Stampotique and I got to see her family of stampotique stamps, wow what a selection and love her new layout in her craft room too, which reminds me really must clean mine!  We had a good chat and catch up, I met the new family member, who took an instant like to me :) so had to take this photo, well you would, it was such a lovely vision.
Anyway got home to miss the son, who had spent his day off with us at home, and had already headed off to see Hannah. However, enjoyed his company the evening before and had a coffee with him this morning.  Well this obviously left me with some spare time, so decided to attempt another LIM card as although my last one met the challenge, whoop whooop unfortunately I linked it to far tooooo many challenges.  You see I just have to go overboard somewhere I just cannot help myself.......

So here is what I created after my bath
and Polly I played with my image settings and impressed thank you for the suggestion

Here is as always the close up of the cute little critter, coloured in copics
Just had to put the sentiment there as he looks as if he is leaning on something :)

Top Tip
When colouring with copics on a one layer card do remember to add a scrap shim in between the front layer of your card and it's back, otherwise your colours will bleed through to the back page.

as always I would like to say hello and thank you to all my wonderful followers and visitors, I love reading your comments and hopping over to see your lovely work.

I would like to enter this creation courtesy of the help as always from the Feline Challenges Site and mention for Nate that this is a great location for finding challenges to enter :)

well enjoy the rest of your evening and tomorrow
