Princess Zella

Wow Look at me!! A  card for no other reason than pleasure!!  It felt really strange Lol!! I was really inspired by the colour challenge over at Saturated Canary, it has been so long since I had coloured anything my Copics felt really strange, and I have to say it is a testament to make it crafty blending card that the image tuned out reasonable at all, I must have done 20 layers before I was happy!!!
I tried to be a bit more adventurous with the shading around the image but my camera really really to leach the life out of colours!! Here is a closer look
Nope still looks washed out!!! The beautiful papers are Kaisercraft Bonjour collection, the butterfly cameo is from Bo-bunny and the corner and seam binding are Wild orchid Crafts! 
Hey no Ranting today either!!! I must be feeling better!!

Basic grey favourite things and a warning!!

Photobucket changed again!! and now it doesn't allow you to "add" an image to an image so no watermarks!!! So ok I think, I will try a few other editing programs!!!!!!!! must confess I tried a few so not entirely sure of the culprit, but the sh*t storm started after downloading Gimp!!! in fact I am almost certain it was Gimp, because I noticed it downloaded some "extras" whilst downloading!! well I have spent the entire day today removing programs and running full system scans and only now is my laptop working properly!! I guess Photobucket will have to suffice!!! The annoying thing is that my laptop came pre-loaded with adobe photoshop and I can't come to grips with it!! My nephew laughed at me when I complained and said that a friend of his was doing her degree on "photoshop" well if you need a degree to work it I am doooomed!!!! Rant over!! just be careful out there!! :)
Going back to my previous rant.... you know the one about the price of going to the Cinema!! When was the last time anyone went to watch a movie and there were more than about 10 peeps there?? they still have to pay staff and heat and clean the premises, I was gratified by how many of you lovely peeps agreed with me lower prices would mean more bums on seats and more snacks bought...... more money!! simples!!!!
So the reason I have returned to the cinema is that yesterday I went to see "Warm Bodies" (about 5 other people apart from the 3 of us!! and its half term here!!) anyhoo AMAZING!!!!!! what a fabby film!!! the overall message could be seen as a bit corny, but wow I laughed, cried and totally fell in love with a brain eating Zombie!!!!! One of the best films I have seen in a long time!!
Wow I have waffled on today!!!! on to the best bit!! It is time for another brilliant new challenge over at Basic grey challenges this fortnight is easy peasy!!
  Favourite things! 
Well of course my favourites are Basicgrey papers, I have used cappella, and Magnolia stamps, I love this "Tilda with Ugg shoes" she if defo one of my all time favourites! Add to that some butterflies and lace and I am a happy camper!! 
the challenges I would like to enter are:
Papertake weekly - anything goes
Tilda's town - anything goes
divas by design - winged things
Flutter by wednesday - anything goes as long as fairies butterflies etc!
Moving along with the times - only girls allowed
Stamp and create - spring is coming
Well I'm off to have a lay down in a dark room after all that ranting!!
Have a wonderful weekend!!
Hugs and kisses

OMG I forgot again!!!!

Oh so sorry lovely peeps, I am late with this weeks Songbird post!!
Just can't seem to shake this Blah feeling!!
Anyhoo this fortnight we would love to see your beautiful cards based on the song
Hopelessly Devoted to you!
 Ahh now that brings me back!!! I went to see Grease about 5 times with my big sis!! Am I the only one who loves the Cinema but finds the prices ridiculous these days!!!! Myself Rob and Logan went to a movie a couple of months ago not realising it was 3D until the lady at the till asked for about £32 pounds I think it was!!!! for three people one of which is classed as a junior ticket!! Well no popcorn for us!!!! Surely it would be better to charge half the amount, I am sure they would get more than twice the amount of peeps through the door, and those peeps would be able to afford treats,  am I wrong!!! Rant over!!! Hmmm feeling better now!! 
BTW it's blizzarding outside as I write!!!! Hmmm didn't mention that this morning, did you Mr weather man!!
Right where was I? Oh yes!!
Isn't she cute!!! and she was another very generous Freebie from the lovely Krista Smith over at Saturated Canary and like all the lovely freebies if you missed her she is only $2 to buy, a bargain eh!!!!! I tried to keep the colouring simple as the papers are rather busy!! Lol!! the image has been coloured in with my copics and the papers are basic grey Sugar Rush, which haven't seen the light of day it has to be said for at least a year or more!! the wee hearts are from the the paper set!
The challenges I would like to enter are:
Sketch and stash - Sketch. (Digi new - papers neglected!)
Simon says stamp - anything goes
card makin mamas - I'm in the mood for love
sweet stamping - love is all around
Allsorts - lets get cute
