Little bit of colouring

Hi there everyone 
had a little colouring session 
with my spectrum noirs
and my saturated canary digi's
such a sweet image
 i thought it was perfect for valentine day but haven't had time to make cards of late
i have added a list of the colours used
BG1-BG2-BG3-BG5 GB1-GB3-GB5 and Blender pen

isn't this a beautiful image for the bride to be 
i love it so elegant yet modern 
the colours i used are 
BG1-BG2-BG4 and Blender Pen
that little dotty background just finishes it off
don't you think  
i will add some crystal glitter for that added bit of sparkle

as for me
im slowly getting back into the swing of things
 im knitting baby blankets  cardigans and hats for the Twins
they are doing well indeed should be home soon 
doctors are very very pleased with their progress
so un-till next time 
have a great day

I'm Still Here

Hi There My Crafty Friends
  you might ask what i have been up too
unfortunately not crafting   as such .....
you might remember i posted about  we were expecting baby twins in March this year 
they decided to arrive early on the 23rd Jan a boy and a girl
 weighed in at 3 lbs each slightly smaller than expected for date but never the less
 they are both well  Ashton and Alana
they have just been moved from neonatal  intensive care
 into the Special care unit now both gaining weight feeding from bottle 
and looking very strong indeed
i have been knitting prem baby cardigans like billy O
 yes  it has to be 2 of everything lol 
the proud parents are coping brilliantly  bless them  
it's been such a worry for us all  i have felt that some of the stress has been lifted knowing they are getting stronger every day
i haven't got to see them in person yet i haven't been up to the mark with colds and stuff 
but my son sends pictures daily so i don't miss out
as you can imagine my crafting has been side tracked
with good reason lol
 must say 
Ashton and Alana 
are beautifull and so precious to us all....
they are expected to remain in hospital till there due date
which is end of March
 to be honest with you i have been living and breathing these little  babies
 don't think i will truly relax till they are both home with us all

as for the crafting side 
i have seen both Crafters Companion and Sheena Douglass
have brought out some fabulous crafting goodies
i do hope you agree they are must have's
so till next time 
happy crafting  to you all
