Half a Saturated Canary

Just a half of an image today!!!
She would have been a full  image if my B******* cat didn't walk ink across his leg.
If I had just started the image but because I had practically finish  it would have devastated me to just abandoned  it me - the only answer was to amputate her legs - ooops sorry!!!

I had some papers just ready that I think is close enough for Toltally Papercrafts.
My image is by Krista's Sateraded Canary and colled - Gothica and coloured with Copics
My dies are by Nellie Snellon - the borders and the circular one is by Marianne.
I've use a Sizzix flowers and the leaves my Crealies.

I am entering this challenge for
Totally Papercrafts -  are a colour inspiration

Now  I need to lie down!!!!
I do wish Blogger will stop playing with things around - the text of my blog suddenly grew enormous - when I went to change it  every thing had changed.  Consequently hours lately I ended up with a completely new blog - now I need to shuffle a few things and alter a few other  -  phewww - great sigh!!! 
What next is he up to I wonder?????

This image is Alice in Wonderland and the images. I think I have all of them and intend to make them into a small book - time permitting!!!
This one is the  Mad Hatter and is coloured with Copics.
The papers are ???? - from my 'bit box'  - not matter I much I use them they still seem to grow and grow!!!!
My clock is the from Tim Holtz - I didn't intend to add 'TEA TIME' on I couldn't  make which time it should be - I don't have tea!!!
