Stampin'Up! on a Sunday, Loads Of Love

Good morning!! Is Sunday already those weekends are flying by far to quick.
I can't be long as I am meeting up some crafty friends and need to dash in about 15 minutes but I got redy a bit earlier so I am doing the post now rather than later on.
I played with Loads Of Love this week seeing as is a set that's on offer right now. Now is not secret this is a personal favourite of mine, and I use it mostly for Christmas cards, don't know why because is clearly suited to every occasion out there especially if you add the accessories set that matches this set.
So it is Christmas card I am showing today made with this set

 Weird angle I know I made an easel card and I find them so hard to photograph. Anyway I choose to use my markers to colour my truck and while doing this I shot a video that I will share with you on Tuesday. Colouring is all the rage right now and there are various mediums on the market, I wanted to show you that you can obtain the same look using our Marvellous Markers you just need to follow a few tips. I am by no mean an expert as I don't do it often enough but I love the result and I know with practice I could improve.
Here's a close up , perfectly acceptable shading using 3 different colours.

Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue and Brilliant Blue were the colours used for the truck. Summer Sun, Old Olive and Always Artichoke colours used for the tree, creamy caramel and close to cocoa for the tyres.

Oh and I have some exciting news. I HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED !!!
Check out the Scrapbook Trends magazine. Here's a sneak peek of my project check the mag out in your local WHSmith, HobbyCraft and your local mag supplier, and if you need it autographed just let me know. mwahahahah
Have a super Sunday I am off to meet my friends and STAMP !!
Till next time big hugs xxx
