Arwyn's 10th birthday

Yesterday was my beautiful nieces 10th birthday.  I can't believe how fast the time as gone.
I made her a card using one of my favourite stamps, Butterfly Marci from La La Land Crafts.
I also used a selection of La La Land Craft dies.  The papers are from Clarity 'sweet dreams'.
Isn't she just gorgeous!  I used my new Spectrum Noir illustrator and bullet nib pens to colour her up and then finished off with a hint of colourblend pencil.

Illustrator colours used
FS7, FS8, MB1, IG2, PD1, HB1, DP2, LV3, LV1 and PP1

Bullet nib pens
EB1, EB2, MB1, AP1

Colourblend pencils
Maple, Boysenberry, Vivid Pink and Rose Peach

Here is Arwyn with her card and her Lady Ga Ga Monster High doll which we gave her.  I have one very happy niece!
And in other news...........
I made the April Guest Design Team slot!

I can finally share the most exciting news I have had in a long time!  
I've only gone and made it on to the Spectrum Noir TV Design Team with some other amazing artists!   I now have even more reason to sit and colour!
Here are my first four cards made for Spectrum Noir and Crafters Companion using the gorgeous illustrator pens.  They have a brush nib on one end and a fine bullet nib on the others.  I will list the pens I used under each picture for your information.

La La Land Crafts DT application photos

As some of you are aware La La Land Crafts are having a design team call and I am a MASSIVE La La Land fan so quite frankly I HAVE to apply!
With this being a brand spanking new blog I thought it would be the best idea to add my favourite makes here for the application.

Keep everything crossed for me!

Welcome to my new blog!

I'm back...... again....
Welcome to More Cuttings from the Craft Room Floor.
Here I plan to share with you all my crafty makes, exciting news and quite possibly lots of moaning moments as well!
