My first Saturated Canary!!!!

Is it just me, or, is Saturated Canary quite an odd name? I like it, but I can't think where it might come from. Am I missing something vital? I suppose the only thing that counts is that every digi stamp on the website is absolutely scrummy! I allowed myself to buy only 2 - how long was I trying to make up my mind! LOL!! I'll be visiting the shop again as soon as I have more pennies. Hehehe.

This is my very first attempt at colouring Gothica (gotta love the name), so stand back a bit, squint and it looks ok! I won't say how long it took me to colour it but I'm going to practise some more.

The DPs are the Apothecary Emporium from Echo Park Paper. I wish they did them in red and purple too. I swished a bit of black soot distress ink at them for good measure.The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I think the ribbon is from The Range (I love a bargain!). The clock die is the Sizzix Tim Holtz Weathered Clock die and I'm using it all the time. It makes a nice change from a doily!!

I'm going to enter the card into the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog if I can muster up enough courage lol.

Finally, this next masterpiece was created by my daughter - a family portrait. I cut the people pieces out but she decorated and stuck everything herself. I think it's a great job for a girl of 4.

Hope that you're all having a great week. Thank you for stopping by and leaving your lovely comments; it makes my week. Hugs, Jayne xx
