Monarch of the Glen

This is my card for the following challenges.

Bee Crafty #37 - Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays #18 - Clean and Simple + sentiment
Crafty Emma's Store #1 - Anything Goes
Cupcake Crafts Challenge #106 - Let's get digital
Bunny Zoe Crafts #3 - Vintage

Sorry for the rubbish picture, I took it late in the evening.
I have used one of CJ's (Cowgirl Up Designs) images called Deer.  I chose this image and the Welcome Home Dad image because I wanted to challenge myself colouringly (made up word because I couldn't think of another word to use).  I hope that you think I've made a half decent job of colouring them in because I do. (Hope you don't mind me blowing my own trumpet but I am really proud of these cards).  I coloured the image with Copics and Promarkers and the papers were from a Crafts House, Plum Pudding 6 x 6 paper pad.  The sentiment was a stamp by Mary Hughes I got from QVC many years ago, it came in a box of 40 stamps and I've only used about 4 out of it.  (Mental note - I really must get the stamps out to use as they are really nice).  Just a couple of reminders follow for upcoming Cowgirl events.

The challenge over on Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp'en Challenge this coming Sunday is sponsored by MICHELLE PERKETT.  The winner will receive 3 images of their choice from Michelle Perkett + the Winner's Badge and the Top 3 will each receive 1 image of their choice from CJ at Cowgirl Up Designs and the Top 3 Badge.

Don't forget you still have time to enter the BLOG HOP and challenge (you don't have to make a card to enter the blog hop or vice versa)

I will be giving you the details of our Christmas Cards for Soldiers event tomorrow.
