Coffee anyone?

Here's an image I coloured ages ago and forgot about. It must've gotten lost under all my bits of paper laying around, cause I happen to stumble upon it the other. I immediately grabbed it and made this card.

At least I remembered what paper I used to match my image to. Now when I look at it again, it gives me a bit of a Christmassy feel, but it's not supposed to be. Oh well, it's done now, and hopefully someone will like it and want it, lol.

She is Chloe the coffee mug girl from Stamping Bella, and as usual I coloured her with prisma pencils, but I also used my lyra's for her hair. I have 3 lyra pencils I use in combination for a brownish reddish hair colour, but in this case I only used two of them to get the 'red' hair. I added a bit of glamour dust with my quickie glue pen, some bella dots and a bit of ribbon and that's it.

I know I complain about the weather a LOT, but you are just going to have to listen to me moan again!!! It is such horrible weather here in Jo'burg today, and apparently it is here to stay for the next few days. How unfortunate. It's cold, raining, and just miserable.

So two things I quickly want to share. Firstly, Jeanie, the Spotted Chick, has made the greatest sponging tutorial. If you have always wanted to know how it's done, or even if you want to check if you could possibly improve your sponging technique go check her tutorial. I loved it. Secondly, she has opened up her That's Krafty Thursday as a challenge, you can read all about it on her blog here. I am definitely joining in, hope you will all too. It will be fun!

I am going to install my webcam now. Hopefully soon I will be able to chat AND see all my buddies far far away. Anyone with Skype (it's free) let me know, we can chat some time.

Cheers from me for now.
