Simple and Quick

I am still colouring all the images I printed out and stacked away on the desk in an attempt to pre-empt a New Year resolution of 'Finish One Thing Before You Start Another'!! I have so many printed images lying about looking very sad and dust laden so I am determined that before 1st Jan I will have at least made a dent in the pile!

I managed to pull my back yesterday whilst stretching to get a bag of flour out of the cupboard - ended up sitting with a hot water bottle on my back for most of the day and feeling sorry for myself. Consequently, I only got two cards done as I needed to go and lie on the sofa most of the evening. Several anti inflammatory pills later, today I'm gingerly walking round and have no idea how long I'm going to be able to sit here so am trying to make the most of what crafting time I have! Here's a basic simple card that didn't take me very long to make using a freebie digi from the very talented Beccy, which I coloured with promarkers. I dusted the linen textured card with the 'red' brush (the one that I use for all the red/pink distress inks) without adding any more colour to it as I didn't want it to turn out too pink/red! The strawberry paper is from the Basic Grey 'Nook and Pantry' pad and the fabric flowers are from my stash.

Hello Viv. You do make me smile with your images, because I do that, and then wonder which to colour first.
Your card is delightful, and it is so refreshing to see some other non-christmassy cards. I love it. Happy colouring.
With love, Sandra xxx

Ohhhh yum, these Strawberries look good enough to eat! I hate to admit it, but I have images printed, or stamped, AND COLORED, thinking I would get a head start... Why I don't just use them, but instead always print or stamp a new one is beyond me.. ha ha... So you're not alone!
I'm so glad you decided to enter this into this weeks challenge over at Phindy's Place. We hope to see you back again.
