Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Yellow! Crafty Boots challenge

Happy Monday everyone - well today sees the start of another challenge over at Crafty Boots and this time the theme is Yellow, as chosen by the lovely Faye - so pop over and join us, I'd love to see what you come up with!

Right my card - 

I've chosen a Mo Manning digital stamp called 'Checking FB' for my card, I coloured her with my Pro/Flexmarkers using different shades of yellow. I matted and layered the script paper from the Papermania Book-print pad onto yellow and black card stock. A Martha Stewart punch created the black doily decorative strip. I embossed a piece of yellow Coredinations card before mounting my image on to it. I drew faux black stitches too. The sentiment is from the Papermania Urban stamps. And, as frequently found, I finished off with a black and some yellow buttons from my ever growing collection!

Hope you like my DT card, I sure enjoyed making it, that image was so much fun to colour!

Take care Zo xx

Hi Zoe

I have only recently discovered Mo's stamps and I have to agree with you 100%, they are an awful lot of fun to colour - not to mention that they are fantastic images. I adore the way you have coloured this one, especially her bathrobe, it looks great.

I hope you have a really sunny day.

I adore your card Zoe! Yellow is one of my favourite colours but I always find it hard to not make it look over the top on a card, you've managed to make it look lovely and classy, especially with the black and your fabby buttons!
