All Dressed Up

I know! I know! I know! You have taken one look at this little Miss and I know what you are all thinking. I do, really! 
She is all dressed up in her finest clothes, looking very fancy in her fabulous colours and ... no lippy! 
OMG! No lipstick! 
Not even a smidge of lip gloss - what was I thinking! 
I hope my Mother doesn't see this. 
I guess that I just thought that she was making enough of a statement without the need for gloss :-)

I had lots of fun colouring another Sherri Baldy image and Copic markers just filled my workspace. Love that!

Red White and Blue

I have been over to Some Odd Girl and that horrible Paypal monster jumped out at me again. (He is not really horrible. I secretly love him, cause he always supports my passion). 
Anyway, this is Summer Kaylee. I went with a simple style of card cause I wanted to really show off Kaylee in her faded denims and singlet top and that confident look she has.

happy day

Whhh whhhh whhh! .... that is me - blowing the dust off my blog. It sure has settled here recently. 
The reason that I have been so absent is because umm ... I had to umm..... I was going to umm..... I have been umm .... 
I don't even have a good reason. 
I think that 'life' just got in the way of my blogging - how dare it! 
But! I am back and can't wait to see what you have all been up to and catch up on all your blogs.
Even while I have been 'away' I have been busy making cards and this is one that I just finished using a Saturated Canary image 'Spring Ball'. Just by the name, it may not appear to fit into the whole 'Summer challenges' but I think that sunshine and outdoor activity are perfect together. I have also used Bazzill Basics Licorice paper pad, the Stacking Star die from MFT and Copic markers. 

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
Incy Wincy: Summer Lovin'
Marker Pop: #25 Summer Fun
Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Summer Fun     Top 3
Penny's Paper Crafty: #134 Spots and Stripes
Little Miss Muffet: #64 Seeing Stars
Jellypark Challenges: Celebrate Summer
Saturated Canary: #47 Celebration     TOP 3
