Hello all. I am a Nursery Nurse working with special needs children within a main stream school and love it. I have worked as a NN for 34 years and wouldn't change for anything. I have always crafted in some way or another since the age of 7. At present I do a bit of patchwork and quilting, jewellery making and card making.

We went on holiday to Eyemouth on Saturday. We stopped off in Perth and I had a look in the Stampaholics shop. I found some lovely new stamps from Magnolia Stamps. I had taken some inks and acrylic blocks with me thanks goodness. We arrived at the caravan, it was a lovely day! Sunday was cold and overcast. I stamped some of the new images, they were lovely. Monday and Tuesday it rained constantly all day and night with gale force winds too. Thanks goodness for craft! I had taken my pro markers with me and used them to colour my images. Love these images to bits they are so cute. Spent most of the time colouring the full sheets of images I had stamped. After 4 sleepless nights of cold and rain and the thought that the caravan was going to take off into space, we decided on Wednesday morning to come home early. Stopped in Dunfermline to see my friend Sheila and had to stamp some of the images for her too.
Colours of pro markers I used to colour the:
Elephant - Cool Grey 1 and 4 (for the knees) and Ivory.
Monkey - Cinnamon and Vanilla
Lion - Cinnamon, Vanilla, Henna and Ivory.
Shading was achieved by over colouring in the same colour.
