Welcome Anastasia

Howdy?! It's time to welcome the lovely Anastasia, I've had her in my computer for a few months as I get distressed every time I need to print out an image and then colour it...with different colours. I wanted to show her as she's lovely, so I spent yesterday watching colouring tutorials and I found one where the fantastic card maker made a few small colouring faux paz and that bit encouraged me the most. She just carried on and said that it was nothing to worry about. So I felt quite silly and began to colour.

Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Stamptember Blog Hop
Simply Create Too: Something New (the digi stamp and the designer paper)
Sweet Stampin' Challenge: The Great Outdoors (the weathered wood panel)

Materials Used:
Whimsy Stamps image coloured with Promarkers and mounted on 3D tape.
Vilda Stamps sentiment stamped with Distress ink, EK Success small corner adorner.
DQWV designer paper, ribbon and the white cardstock for printing and stamping are leftovers.

Thank you so much for visiting! It means a lot to me. I'll catch up with reciprocal visits as last week was a bit hectic. Hope you'll have a nice evening, I'll go out and admire the full moon, we're still having summer temperatures to enjoy. Imagine, it's all ready September and we have 22 degrees Celsius, isn't that grande!

Love and hugs

    I loved your tale of getting distressed about the colouring...I get distressed about printing and resaizing digital images. I have never managed to do it. The only 3 times I ever used a digital image, my neighbour sized it and printed it for me. I do not even know how to open jpeg

    Proud of you for carrying on and getting it this is a lovely card.
