Hi everyone,

I've been wanting to colour in in black and white for quite some time, and with the kids being off this week I've had a few moments to myself when I've been sat with my inks out and this cutie is the result.

I was really pleased with how she turned out, and how easy it was to do. I'm going to have a few more monochrome images methinks, lol.

I'm entering this card into TOMIC's challenge, '3-2-1' a recipe. They want 3 different DP's, check although my third is actually the doily die. All of my papers are from Magnolia. There needs to be 2 embellishment's, check-my tag and flowers. I couldn't believe my luck when I saw the colour of that carnation sat in my box. And finally, 1 main stamped image, check-Congratulation Tilda.

I've stitched the papers together using some fab top stitch thread available from The Ribbon Girl. I think I got a bit optimistic in my stitching abilities though. I'd already decided I wanted to use this nestie, before I decided I wanted to stitch them together, it was right at the end it happened too.

That's it for me. I took the kids school shoe shopping yesterday, that was errr 'fun'!! Even the promise of MacDonald's didn't keep them totally well behaved. Today is a lazy day, and I think we'll brave the pictures tomorrow :-S
