Count on me when things get sticky...


Hi Lovely Blogging Buddies...

Happy Sunday!

I'm here today with my DT inspiration card for Whimsie Doodles..  I wanted to go for a brighter image and to try different colour tones than my norm - so I went for Lollipop Girl - (she's holding a mahoosive lollipop!) which also includes a separate sentiment that's perfect to send to someone who's having a bit of a struggle..

She really brightened my day as I made her...  and you never know, I may use yellow and orange again soon now I know they're not so scary!

Big Hugs...


  1. This is so cute and fab colouring... love her hair!
    The lollipop looks great and the sentiment is perfect and yes, I could see it being perfect for someone going through a struggle. I have to have that die too!
