Hello friends.
Today, being a kind of coolish day, had me spending
time in my craft room just playing.  
Yesterday I received my new dies  so made this 
'book' card as I call it...many folds and layers.

A longish post to show you what I mean..
using a sweet image from art by MiRan called Faylinn
and coloured with copics and prisma's

Brusho's were used to create my papers, I thought it was time
I experimented with them.  A few dies were also used.

Art by MiRan....a/g
Art by MiRan...f/b challenge

Thank you to everyone for congrats on the birth of 
Sofia Maria..
A picture of her seconds after birth...our Angel..

A wonderful riot of colour Annie, you know I am a big fan of Brusho's but of course the start of this post is that little angel, can well understand how you are itching for that first cuddle.
