Yes, yes... it's me, with turquoise!!

Hi Best Blogging Buddies..

Well here I am having tucked my pink markers away till next week...  giving my turquoise ones an airing!!  I do love pink, (and a tiny bit of salmon pink sneaked in here.... ), but a girl needs a change.....  right? LOL

Soooo let me introduce to you a little lady named Belinda from Tiddlyinks...  She's a little cutie with her big hat and her handbag.  You can see that I've also given her a little bit of glamour dust too...  you know me well!! hehe
Card recipe:
  • Papermania Design Stax Lucy Cromwell
  • Kaisercraft Bubblegum Hills - Blue Lemonade
  • Belinda - Tiddlyinks (digi image)
  • Cuttlebug hearts embossing folder
  • SU Scallop Punch (available from Sylvia here)
  • Sentiment - Pebbles Rub On (received with others as a RAK from lovely Pami! - thank you!!)
  • Coloured with Copics
As you can see, Belinda is sitting on quite a lot of 3d foam pads...  hope she's comfortable!! hehe

Today my lovely OH and I went out for a drive over to Skipton...  well to Samuel Taylors at Embsay to be precise....  It's been throwing it down all day, so we couldn't go anywhere nice for a picnic.....  but needed to get out of the house....  so what better place could I think of????  We had a nice lunch in a little pub on the way... and a lovely coffee on the way home....  and I bought one or two things (!) at Embsay....  So all is well with the world......!!

Happy crafting one and all..
Big hugs
