Over the Rainbow

It's been a while since I coloured with anything but my Promarkers so in a bid to use my stash I dusted off my Lyra pencils and had an enjoyable time making this as my DT inspiration for


It's always Anything Goes just as long as your image is hand coloured.


 The sweet couple (and their lovely doggy) went perfectly with a lovely muted rainbow pad from Alpaca Pals and I just finished it off with some LOTV cut up words. 

I am feeling a little bit older this week as it was my birthday yesterday, that unfortunate event means more cake...had to be done!!  I have been on Annual Leave this week and have been decorating our Sitting Room. I reckon the whole of Dorset must have had the same idea as the shelves in the DIY stores were quite empty, however we managed to find enough of a colour that we both liked so all is well!! It was probably a sensible project as it hasn't stopped raining. Cold and dry is much better, even -9 degrees is preferable to howling gales and rain!!

Keep well everyone xx

Such an appropriate image Sarah and a perfect DP too.
I agree about the cold and dry v wet and warm, the fields are back to slop again! Just spent a bracing few minutes moving the sheep and shedding the poor walkers ready for delivery to the lambing sheds with the help of Max. We were on stand and block whilst Al moved the main flock, quite uneventful for a change!

Love the cute image Sarah and beautifully coloured. It would have been my sister's birthday yesterday, but sadly she passed away 10 years ago aged 66. I still miss our daily chats on the phone.
Take care, Hugs, Carol S.xxxx
