Grown up Colouring

Yes I've been at it again, at the moment I love my Promarkers! I'm finding that sitting and just colouring stamped images is so therapeutic and relaxing. It's also a great excuse to get on with my Christmas cards. I sorted through my bit box of papers and found a bunch of Christmas papers that had been knocking about for ages, so I'm promising not to buy any new ones and use all the bits before I cut into another new sheet. Then I have to use all the sheets before I buy anymore, that will probably be the next millennium! 
I've even had my box of Promarkers at work and taken some of the images to colour in my lunch hour. The problem with that is I don't want to come back from lunch.
Here are some of my creations:
See the little pom poms on the hats, yes they were coloured in with Promarkers to match their outfits. This afternoon I'm going to a Promarkers colouring techniques workshop. I have to find out if I'm using my pens correctly and as its at the fabulous Craft Box my resolve not to buy new Christmas papers may weaken. They always have the most lovely papers, but they also stock Molly Blooms and I've been drooling over some of the Christmas stamps. I will have to stay strong!
