Hi Lovely Blogging Friends...

Well, I've got to admit I did chuckle at our theme this time at In The Pink..  then after I stopped smiling - I got out my very favourite (at the moment because it's my newest) stamp and started colouring!!

The theme is

(use a rubber or clear stamp)

I did love colouring this fabulous Edna from Stamping Bella...  she's really a delight and I love ALL of the fabulous images using her... but this one in particular tickles my fancy...  my lovely OH says it does bear a passing resemblance to me...  I think he's meaning the glass in hand!! hehe!

Materials Used:
Image and Sentiment - Stamping Bella Edna Needs a Martini
Paper - Authentique
Dies - Spellbinders Double Stitched Rectangles (altered slightly to make the smaller rectangle for the sentiment)
Colouring - Copics
Hair - E21/23/25/29
Skin - E000/00/11/70, R20
Dress - RV000/91/55/66, R81/56, N4
Wings - RV000/91
Grounding - N0/1/3/4
Twill Ribbon and Glitter from stash

Don't you just love her??

Now... I just wanted to share with you a photo of what I look while drinking my morning coffee on the lovely days we've had this week...  

yes... the flags do need a bit of brushing up as the birds have been digging in my pots!

Oooh and another bit of news.... I am no longer a part of the Passionate Paper Creations DT - sad, but it wasn't for me.

Hope you'll join in the stamping fun at In The Pink - I'd love to see you there!

Big hugs
