The Pencil Case - X = Xanthic (Yellow)/Anything Goes!

Hello! Happy Saturday everyone!

We have a new challenge starting today on THE PENCIL CASE blog where the DT showcase the incredible LYRA REMBRANDT POLYCOLOR PENCILS blog and our theme is Xanthic!!!  Now I know what you’re thinking (in fact it was what I was thinking) what on earth is Xanthic!! Well apparently it relates to the colour yellow.  Who knew!! But don’t worry, if yellow is not your go-to colour you can follow our Anything Goes theme instead. J

This time we are sponsored by the amazing…
………who are very kindly offering an incredible prize so check out THE BLOG for details.
I have to confess to this being my first ODDBALL image but it will hopefully not be my last.  Love, love, love them!
This glorious little girl is called BONNIE BOOKWORM and I had originally intended to make her into a ‘not-at-all-obvious-given-her-name’ bookmark but before I knew it THIS happened.  So the best laid plans and all that! J

Colouring Card: Neenah Solar White
Paper: Dovecraft
Dies: Tattered Lace ‘Pin Dot Squares’ and ‘Tuck In Hearts’ – Sizzix ‘Rectangle Framelits – Tonic ‘Inspirations Sentiment Set’
Others: Gems - Mustard Seed and Pumice Stone DI

So here’s a ‘novel’ idea ‘book’ a place in our challenge by visiting THE BLOG.  And if you want to experience these amazing artist quality pencils for yourself you can get them HERE! And if you already have them and enjoy using them why not share your makes with us in our FACEBOOK GROUP! We would love to see you!

Thanks so much for looking and for your kind comments and have a wonderful weekend!

See ya!
