Sweet 16

 Good evening, I hope you've had a pleasant weekend. I've had a lovely day today- a visit to a friend with a gift for her birthday, followed by lunch out at a local carvery- I do love a 'no cooking Sunday' !!  This afternoon I made this card for my niece who will be 16 next week, I still think of her as she was at 3- the cutest little scrap of a girl with the cheekiest grin ever!  Hard to believe that she's all grown up now- a real girly girl who loves pretty clothes and is welded to her phone- hence the card! The image is from Krista Smith- so many of these lovely digis are perfect for teen girls. I've used my Copic markers to colour and stencilled around the image, added a little bling. The card design is a simple easel, papers are KaiserCraft- the colours are brighter IRL, not good lighting for the photo!

Must dash now- it'll soon be time for the Strictly result show!

Have a lovely evening

Hi Chris, I am really properly sorry for not having visited your blog for so long, I've even stopped saying once things calm down I'll be back regularly - it's almost like lying!!

I'm popping by as part of the Colour Crazy Craft Team to say thanks for joining in with us this week with your fabulous card! Love those images (I'm sure you might have realised that!) and your colouring of this one is just perfect. Your stencilling adds a great touch and the easel shape is such fun!

Hope your niece had a great birthday!
