Good evening all.not as late as i thought, still nothad our tea yet though.lol.
so on to my card for tonight, now i really had to resist the urge to colour another saturated canary image but i have a feeling you`ll see another one tomorrow :D
i have been asked if i can do another video tut on how i colour hair etc, i will try and attempt another one  but it probably won`t be till after christmas cos next week is when i have my mouth surgery :(
i was also asked which card i use for colouring with my promarkers.i use the rymans smooth bright white coated card.love it as its on offer a lot of the time and i use it for digital images and stamped.

Hi ya, looks to me like you are on top form right now - another stunning card. Such a cute image and you've given it wonderful depth. Looks like the little mice could walk out of the image. Great colour combo as well.
