I'd forgotten my love of colouring!

Edit 2: My computer wizard friend Sam has sorted my blog icons out, you are a total STAR thank you so much. At last I can published images again!! So here are the missing pictures of the cards that I so enjoyed colouring in. Hope you like them!

Id forgotten just how much I love to stamp and colour in!
I have been so busy the last week or so trying to finish all the projects for my next book, Flower Power Papercrafts. I have photography this Monday and the following Monday too and then that will be all the projects done and photographed. I still have to make some of the projects and do lots of variations for cards but Im almost there. Then its just down to all the text for the book!
Anyway I took my Mum, Jean, out for the morning on Friday - she is also into card making infact she is responsible for me getting into it! I needed some bits for some projects and we visited the Craft Barn and The Glitter Pot both local shops for us. I bought bits at both but a stamp at The Glitte Pot and received some handy hints and tips from Carolyn. Thank you so much I really appreciated the time and will keep you to the play session very soon!
I love the way these cards have turned out, simple but I think they look lovely and I so enjoyed colouring them in - its very relaxing. I have left the messages off until I know who the cards are for then I will add some foiled greetings from Craftwork Cards.
Hope you like them too!

Edit: For some reason I have lost all the icons at the top of my post so I cant insert pictures or change the font size etc. I dont know what I have done. If anyone can help me and tell me how to get the little icons back so that I upload the pictures I would really appreciate it. So watch this space for the pictures of the cards, SORRY

Hi Julie
Isn't it just a b**** when things like this happen and you just want to get your photos uploaded. It is probably something quite simple - just check that you aren't in Preview because all the icons disappear if you have clicked preview.
Hope this helps

Hi Julie, can't help with the blogger problems sorry but Justine has asked me if I would like to come to Caz's SU demo at your Mum's on 7th May and I thought I should check with you first that it would be ok? I didn't just want to turn up!! Thanks. Kim

Lovely cards Julie. Simple but very effective. I have recently re-discovered my love of colouring. It takes me back to getting lots of TLC when I was young. My mum always bought me a colouring book if I was sick!

These are stunning. I love the way you've kept colour to a minimum, making them look so fresh and pretty with the lovely stamped image.
Good luck with the book when it comes out. I'll be keeping an eye out for it's release.
