Monochrome Mo Manning.....

Its Shells Hubbys Birthday in a couple of weeks so I made this card for him! (Its so sad when you get as old as Nige so he needs the cards to cheer him up!!!LOLOL) 
I did it at the Craft Club I have just joined.  You take your own stuff and meet up with like minded people. They have some bits and pieces that you can use (Like the Martha Stewart Punches I have used here) 
I did find colouring in a nightmare to begin with. Due to the anxiety disorder I was VERY Nervous when I went in and a huge bit shaky!!! So took me an hour and a half to be relaxed enough to do my colouring!!! 
Card Recipe
6 x 6 CArd
Mo Manning Computer Geek Digi Stamp
Papers Echo Park.
Punch - Matha Stewart

Coloured with Spectrum Noirs In Warm Greys,Cool Greys and Blue Greys.

I would like to enter the card into the following challenges

Fab male card Hazel - love the image and so beautifully coloured - its great that you joined the craft club - its so nice just to share something you love to do, I did a few colouring classes last year and I think its a pretty nerve racking experience working with people you don't know for the first time - so well done. Hope you have well behaved kids this weekend! hugs Judith x
