 Hi, Wow I was MIA again hahaahaha I had so many cards/projects planned and created them but I haven't been posting them :( I have not been feeling well but I am kicking it in the butt!!! So here is another page that I did in my 2023 planner. I love creating these as I really don't know what I have to do with all the cards that I create I gave away so many of them already, so I am looking into ways that i still can create but don't end up with a gazillion cards each year....

This cute kitty is from Last Minute Manda. It is in the Purrfect Valentines set. 

And if you use my code Ria25 you get 25% off from your order.
I colored the kitty with Watercoloring pencils and the sketch is created with Decotime alcohol markers.I used cheaper markers for these pages as they soak up the ink and I don't feel so guilty using cheap ones than my precious Spectrum Noir's ;)
Decorative Stamps are from Craft Sensations.

I would love to play the following challenges with my page....

The swirl stamps are from a very old Autumn Leaves stamp set. Stamped with the Silver Spectrum Noir Midas inkpad.

Today i want to show you this card that I created with one of the cute Christmas peekers from Last Minute Manda, I wanted to show him with some christmas ornaments but I did not have a stamp that was right for that so I drawn my own ones with the Spectrum Noir Artliners and Colored them all with the Spectrum Noir Triblend and Illustrator markers. The gold on the ornaments is made with an watermark pen and WOW gold embossing powder and I added some extra gold glitter with a Gold Stickles bottle. The Sentiment is from one of the Special boxes from Crafter's Companion.

Merry Christmas....

 It has been a long time since my last blog and each time I think I am going to pick it up but each time life comes in the way :) So I am not making any promises anymore that I can keep this up as my life is pretty busy nowadays and I am not going to disappoint myself again and again hahaha. 
So I have been creating and coloring my days away... This card is created with the Christmas Tea Gingers from Last Minute Manda.  

If you are interested in these I have a 25% off dtcode to share with you Ria25 it works in the new Last Minute Manda shop and it takes off 25% of your order, plus if you make an order your name will be put in a bowl and at the end of the month Manda is going to pull a name out who wins a voucher for $ 10,00 to spend in the shop.

I merged 2 images together by fuzzy cutting them out and than glueing them onto my card.  I colored the images with the Spectrum Noir Triblend markers and made metallic accents with the Watercolors by Myrthe. Her watercolors are perfect to add little bits of metallic to your coloring. She has a shop on Etsy.
