Saturated Canary - Honey

Hi blogging friends. Well it's almost midweek and I really just don't know where the time is going at the moment.

Hope you had a lovely weekend and managed to get lots of crafting done. Unfortunately I didn't manage any. Saturday was all chores and Sunday I was with Brandon at a swimming gala.

Yesterday Leonie and I went out and bought a new Christmas tree. We decided that the old one had to be replaced because  Brandon is now taller than it. We went for an 8ft one, that way no matter how much more growing he does he'll never be bigger than this one! Were hoping to decorate it tomorrow once hubby has put the lights on it.

My card today uses one of Krista's amazing digis called Honey. It's for a friend's daughter's birthday. It should suit her down to the ground, because she loves dance but she's also a bit of a Tomboy too.

I've followed the sketch over at Saturated Canary Challenge and coloured the image with Copics. It's lovely to watch these images come to life as you colour them, even if they do test your shading techniques.

The image has been mounted on  a nestabilities floral oval shape, these are just so pretty, and the design papers are by Raspberry Road. Some of the flowers are a recent buy from Live & Love Crafts and they're so pretty. I've coordinated the inside to match too.
