Beautiful big flower!



This image is awesome for those of you who enjoy coloring! It's from Whipper Snapper Designs (thanks Karrie!). The patterned paper used here is the "Tudor" collection by Kaiser Craft (an Australian company)...I love the color scheme! I colored the image with colored pencils and blended using Gamsol (odorless mineral spirits).

Oh, and talking of "Tudor", Iain and I watched the first 2 episodes of season 1 of Showtime's series "The Tudors" on DVD...it was great! Looking forward to watching the rest of the series this coming weekend!

Had a busy morning today...weighed in at WW and lost 1.4lbs, so next week I should cross that first tiny 5-lb milestone :) I went straight from WW to a training session at the gym, so I was ready to sit down and stamp a little this afternoon as a reward!

Don't forget, tomorrow is TCP Tuesday...this week your Hipster Hostess will be Carole!

Keep going Toni - YOU can do it!!! I've lost over 10 lbs. since my dad died. Not how I would have chosen to lose it, but it's been a kick in the butt to keep me going!

Great card Toni, Love the pencil colors.

Yahoo!!!! Congrat's on the weight loss. It is so hard sometimes. I'm in a rut with everything lately. Hopefully once I get my treatment I'll get back on track myself. Keep up the great work!

You are one of those amazing coloring people too!!! I love the colors - I am so partial to the warm earthy tones though - Great card - simply wonderful!

Bravo at WW!!! I'm pushing for ya! I am so glad you said the Tudors is on DVD - I've been wanting to see that ever since I returned from London and don't have Showtime. Next stop - Netflix!!! TFS!

WTG with WW and the gym Toni!

I have some of the pp that is for coloring (can't remember the name of it) but I seem to have a craetive block and have yet to use it. Maybe I'll try watercolor pencils.
