Tilda helps me practice my colouring, distressing & shabby chic skills!!!

***This is my 3rd post today...please scroll down for more***
I love blog hopping & seeing all your lovely colouring, distressing & shabby chic makes. However I am rubbish at all 3 I decided to do a bit more blog hopping for some inspiration & actually have a practice at the 3 things I love but can't do!
The main inspiration for doing this card sprouted from me stumbling across  The Shabby Tearoom - 'buttons & bows' & Make it Colourful - colouring 'light source from top left' challenge blogs
Here is my card

What do you think? I am very happy with the results considering how 'shabby' my colouring is!! Do you think my shading is correct? Sorry I am rubbish with shading!! I have recently started using promarkers & I'm starting to get use to them a little. I think this is one of my best colouring efforts to date. (I would like some copic sketch markers eventually!!!)
I would like to enter this card into the 2 challenges above plus a few …

NEW Roger image & FREEBIE!!!

Well after a wee cry this afternoon - a few emotions stirred from yesterday's visit to Leeds I managed to get some digis done.  Yesterdays visit - The doc discussed with us possible reasons as to why my first cycle of IVF treatment didn't work & what they will do different in my 2nd cycle (when I have it) They are really good/nice doctors & he even saw us after we'd not actually been booked in properly for yesterday!! Going back to the hospital brought my emotions back to the surface because the visit yesterday in our minds would have been my 7 week scan. I was also expecting them to say we'll have to go on a waiting list but in actual fact if we'd had the money yesterday we could have booked in for round 2! I wasn't sure about having another go but if I'd had the money I would have booked myself in there & then yesterday. We have the letter & phone number so as soon as we find the whopping £4250 we can ring up & book in. Best start a whip …
