Good morning everyone, it's the middle of the week and I been feeling poorly with the flu for 13 days now, I've been to the doctor and I'm now on antibiotics and I can't get rid of this cough that I've got.
But I felt like doing a little colouring with this super sweet image from Di's Digital Stamps.  Di's got so many wonderful images to choose from and these mice images are so super cute.
You can find her images here .



I think I went overboard with my flower  and lace embellishments and charm but I just love how this card turned out.

Challenges I'm Entering:


1. Base: White SU
2. Coloured Card: Bazzill Dove Grey
3. Design Papers: Bearly Mine Digital Paper, and a scrap from my scrap bin.

Ladybug Bud



Good morning and welcome to my blog, happy Wednesday.  Last Saturday night my husband and I went to a 1920's evening which was a great night and we all had to dress accordingly, I didn't make a dress but added a few bits and pieces to a dress I already had.  Here's the hair piece I made which will give you some idea.



Congratulations to our winner and top 3 from last week.  Great work everyone and I loved looking at your creativity.

Now, on to this week’s challenge and our fabulous sketch for you to follow…
