Cinnamon Sugar

I have had these Papermania papers for quite a while and when I bought my latest Cottage Cutie I just saw her in turquoise green.


She is cut with Spellbinders labels 18 and classic ovals. The sentiment is a LOTV 'Greetings Postmark', Flowers as usual are from WOC.



Ribbon, pearls, brad, gems and beaded stickpin are from my stash.  Buttlerflies are a 'Joy Craft; die, and leaves are a MS punch.


thought I would show the inside for a change.


She is coloured with Promarkers and Prisma pencils with a little chalk added to the background.

I am entering her at Bell's and Whistle's challenge 'Butterflies'  (I did actually add some this time)
and at Promarkers challenge 'Bead it',

Hope you like her and thanks for looking

Absolutely gorgeous. Who'd have thought those papers would work so well. It's great and super colouring too. Thanks for taking part at I ♥ Promarkers this week.

You colored that hair beautifully! It must've taken a lot of time. So many gorgeous details in this card.

OMG Elaine, I couldn't stop looking at this absolutely tunning card. Everything about it is just perfect - your colouring (which by the way is perfection!), your choice of papers, your embellishments, everything. I would say it is only a matter of time before someone picks you up to be on a design team, you are a great card maker, in the words of the TOWIE boys and girle "I am well jel". Also become a follower too, will be checking back regularly from now on. Thanks for joining us over at I ♥ ProMarkers Challenge Blog this week, good luck and hope to see you again real soon,
Hugs 'n Stuff

Wow, thanks for the wonderful comments. Andy.. you will make a girl blush, I think design teams are a long way away. Up until 3 weeks ago I was a decopage/collage/spellbinders girl. I had a few stamps but hardly used them, but happened upon Bev Rochesters blog and haven't stopped colouring since.My Promarkers have jumped from 90 to 140 lol... just a few more to get. Thank you again for taking a look
