Colouring book review.

Evening Everyone,

Tonights post is a wee bit different to the usual blog post from me. Its a book review of a book I received free to review on #NetGalley #DrawingAnimalsinColoredPencil

When I saw this book and the fantastic coloured pencil  fox on the front cover I was immediatly drawn to it. I really wanted to colour like the very talented writer and artist.  
I really enjoyed reading the book and loved looking at the beautifully coloured images.
The author explains all about different colouring mediums, which papers to use and talking you though step by step how to draw the animals and then colour them.  Projects are broken down into simple steps with a great deal of handy tips thoughout.  The author even explains how to colour in backgrounds for your creations. 
I would recommend this book as its super easy to follow and full of great hints and tips. 

The book is avaliable from Amazon here.

A Wee Coo...

 Hi Folks,

Im back again this week with another card for my Dad. Its his birthday in a fortnight so I have made this wee coo card for him. 
 He loves Highland Cows so when I saw this on my Pollyanna Pickering Farmyard Days disc I had to make it for him. 

I loved the black layering on Jackies card over at MAWTT this fortnight so thought I would use it too on my creation.

 Hi Everyone,

Happy New Week!! 

Thank You for all the lovely well wishes for Jake from the last card I popped on. 

Todays card is for Sunday and Fathers Day.  My Dad gets Fathers Day and his birthday in the same fortnight so I will be back soon with his birthday card too!! 

 I saw this cute pop up box set over on Paper Creator and just had to play with it. 
I added a die cut Dad on the card and envelope.  I also added a wee drop of glitter glue just for some added sparkle. The pop up box comes from this set. 

Hope you like my creation,
