New year new start?!

After a couple of false starts with this card i wanted a saying like "i see a bright future in your stars" or "I see a new start on the horizon" but my handwriting is still like a scribbly 8yr oldsso i used the quote that came with MelonHeadz astronomy pack... this pack is very cute with a lot of spectrum to explore different mixes... 
i used promarkers and bits from my stash to add a lil glitz but i didnt feel it needed much to accent as it was already a fab picture and quote...
Just Inspirational Challenges were sponsored by MelonHeadz and Zuri

Guest DT for JIC

Ok so i was asked by a friend to guest dt for JIC to see if i liked being a designer....not that im not capable but more i lack the confidence... i agreed to try it... 
ANYWAYS...  using La Catrina from Zuri Vice President JR i created this.  The challenge theme is purple and orange so here is my attempt... i used stock papers from my stash and promarkers (colours listed below) to colour her in. I hope you like her....Skin/bone - pastel beige & ivory
Dress/hat : hat - tan &satin
purple combos: plum, mulberry, fuchsia pink, peony*, orchid
Orange combo: starfish*, tequila sunrise*, apricot, pumpkin
Green combo: leaf, apple, grass
(* limited edition)
She was great fun to colour i cant wait to purchase some of their manga n chibi style digi...

Teaching monkey

Ok so monkey wants to learn to sew n has been asking for a while but always ends up having a tantrum just as we r about to do it n loses out but 2day she finally got to sew her 1st thing ever n although with a lot of help and guiding, she managed to create herself a lil tote out of 2 old tshirts... we left the neck holes open too so she has her main section and 2 large pockets... she wanted to have decorative stitches too so chose what she wanted n edged the bottom n the arm holes

Creating and designing on the wing

Well after carrying my promarkers in a tote and now I have the full set its a bit squished and disorganised I decided to create a supported system to allow them to stand up or lay down without falling out... hand sewing takes AGES! So it took a few hrs to create just this piece so trying a different technique now to get frame made and bottom attached last...
