I {heart} Penny Black


 Morning Fluffers and Happy Easter :)



Alie
and I always share what we have created with the same starting pile of stash on the last Sunday of the month. Firstly, can you believe it's the last Sunday in March? And yes, we did used to do it on a Saturday, but, hey-ho, let's mix it up a bit!


First time colouring in a puddle for me and I don't think it came out too bad, but if you know about any great tutorials on colouring water and reflections, let me at 'em...



I can't actually remember the last time I coloured up some Penny Black, so I decided to colour another one too...


Very Understanding Hubby was a bit 'put out' that I didn't fancy cut between the wheel spokes this time. Pfffff...Bite me! ;)


Hope you have a lovely Sunday, whatever you get up to and that you didn't miss the hour too much this morning. Sweet Cheeks has been getting up at 6am all week. That became 7am this morning, so I don't feel too robbed. We might have trouble at bed time though, it'll be daylight won't it? Sigh.

Awwww they are just the cutest hedgies (and cards!) ever! Perfect colouring and I think your puddle looks perfect.

We are finally, mostly, out of the 6am wake up calls - SHMbO has now moved to 7am as her preferred start up time. She also, on her own - no help from me g'vnor, promise, has decided that Daddy is the best person to wake up in the mornings. Ahhh it's so nice to lie in 'till 8am again!!!

Hope you are having a lovely weekend - any chocklit around????

These cards are so cute! You've done a great job fussy cutting the hedgehog on the bike, and he's cute as can be! I like the little details of the blue pearls and the DP for the clouds on your first one. With your choice of DPs and colors, it makes a great card for either a man or a woman.

Soo cute and I love the rich shading on the umbrella. Cutting between the spokes? I don't think so!
