And one for fun...

Hi Bestest Blogging Buddies..

I managed to get a card done today just for the fun of it..... yayyy!!  This little lady has been sitting on my desk for a couple of weeks now waiting to be coloured... until yesterday, when I decided to start.  Even though I was on my own for the day, for some reason I didn't feel like card making, but forced myself to get her face coloured...  then......  as I went up to bed, I popped my head into the craft room, and picked up a purple promarker!  And that was her dress done...  Really,  I was sitting clutching my hottie bottle (well it's cold in bed just lately!) - and just had to do the dress before I hit the bed..  Sometimes, you just gotta!!

So today I just popped the rest together.


  • Image - Springtime Wishes - MFT Doodle Garden
  • Dies - Oval Nestie and MFT Die-namics Button Border
  • Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug
  • DP - Pink Petticoat Lots of Dots
  • Twine and Glitter from stash..
And OK, I'll admit the flowers are slightly pink....  but I do try to do cards without my fav colour every now and again..  Mary pointed out yesterday that there was a slight hint of pink on the mug of my card yesterday when I'd said there wasn't any!!  Can I help it if my hand wanders over to the pink section of my pen storage???

Hope you like my fun card...  do say hello if you drop by.  I'd also love to welcome my newest followers..  I'm really flattered that you've decided to follow me.

Big hugs and Happy Crafting
