Angry Ballerina goes purple.

Last week I went to see my lovely mum down in Oxford. She's just had an op so we all went down to visit for a mini holiday and to help her around the house etc. I got to see my cousins, aunt, uncle and granny whilst I was there. It's amazing what the lure of a little person will do to people schedules - LOL

There's been all kinds of excitement going on with the elections. I know its not everyone's cup of tea, but I've really enjoyed watching everything unfold. Let just see how the conservative libdem coalition works out...

Anywho, back to cards - wooo! I managed to spend a couple of evenings colouring at my mums. It was a matter of sitting on the floor at the coffee table, but the pain is worth it - right?!?

I coloured up my Angry Ballerina stamp from Kraftin Kimmie. I've gone with a purple combo, mainly because I don't have much in the way of pink copics. What can I say I'm not a pink girly girl. I've mounted her on some plain bazzil cardstock and added a ribbon from my stash. I'm pretty sure I got it in hobbycraft. To be totally frank I think I would prefer it without the bow (much to my husbands annoyance, seeing as he lended me his fingers in order to create it!), but I had a slight ink splodge from when i inked up the stamp so I was just hiding it.

And joy of joys my prismacolour pencils have arrived, only a month after I ordered them (damn volcano!) I can't wait to give them a go. If anyone has any tips or hints I would welcome them as I've only got youtube to teach me.

See you soon.
