Here he is coloured up with copics, sorry I forgot to do progress photo's.

Well it's taken me a week to get this coloured and framed I wanted this as something I could have on the wall. Dam shoulder injury keeps getting in the way.

Security Guard Card

I can't believe that this April it will be 5 years that Steve and I have been been dating (ooh don't you just love such an old fashioned word). We didn't have the easiest start as we were living 200 miles apart. But when its right its right and though it all we've grown stronger and stronger.  

We both hit that land mark birthday in the next year or so and Steve last year decided to see if he had what it takes to become a Security Guard, so he paid to go on a course got his qualifications and then paid for his licence, which meant he could now work anywhere they needed Security.  He loves it and although he's only been doing this at the weekends since March he's managed to do quite a number of different one's.  So as it was coming up to our Anniversary I wanted to make him a card that I hoped he would just love.

Bloobel has a stamp called Security which was just perfect

Here's the finished card which he loves which we have to have on show in our bedroom all the time.

Bloobel January 2017 Progressive Challenge - I Must Protest!

Well its the start of a new year and its time to make some resolutions for 2017! Now I'm not a big believer of making Resolutions as too often we make ones that are just to hard to keep.  So as I've done for a number of years now I only make resolutions that I know I can and will keep.  

This year I've made the promise to myself that I will make and find more time to do some colouring. So I've signed up to a January Progressive Challenge - I Must Protest! By Boobel Stamps

Lisa the designer has given us this stamp to colouring with a blank board to add our own sologon. 

 Here's my colouring

And this is the finished card x

I used the collection from Aimee Harrison called Feeling Festive, as I love the colours used here very traditional. 

This photo is of me and my class mates back in 1974 I am the tall one at the back.
