"Abby Birthday"

Hi Blogging Buddies...

Hope you're all well in this chilly weather!

It's my turn to bring you a card for Whimsie Doodles - this time I chose to use one of this month's new releases - this is Birthday Abby and can be found HERE.  Isn't she just such a cutie?  I was also tempted to use a colour that I don't normally go for as you know... yellow...  but it seemed to suit her personality!  OK, I confess...  every image I colour takes on a personality and gives me hints on which colours to use...!!  Will you send for the men in white coats now?? LOL!

Card Recipe:
Papers: My Minds Eye - My Girl, October Afternoon Thrift Shop
Dies - Memory Box Heart Chain Border Die, Lil' Inkers Stitched Rectangle, La La Lands Crafts Stitched Tag
Copics - 
Shading W0/1/3/5/Blender
Yellows Y06/35, YR02/04/20
Pinks R81/85, RV55/09
Blues B0000/01, BG15
 Skin E000/00/21,/11/04, R20
Hair E21/34/23
A hint of glitter 

I also put some paper and a stitched rectangle on the inside too.

There are lots of fabulous images over at the shop - you won't be able to resist if you click below!

Now, can I just take a minute to welcome my newest followers...  thank you for taking the time to look at my creations and read my ramblings..  Hope you'll say hello so I can return the favour.

Big Hugs
