Im off to buy a wig !!! - The Sugar Bowl challenge Marlene's Sketch+Allsorts Challenge all about the sentiment

Good morning everyone...just a quick post this morning as I will be back later with my Bunny Zoe's Crafts Candy winner...I did nothing I had planned yesterday but plans are meant to be broken so I don't mind things like that happening, oh I did manage to buy the CD I wanted though much to my poor husbands despair as I was singing at the top of my lungs to Cee Lo Green lol, we just chilled watched a bit of TV and I did a bit of hand stitching trying to make organza ribbon roses, they need just a tad more work I think before I use them on my cards, but they are defo a work in progress...right onto my card today and the reason I need a wig, I want this little beauties hair don't you, how amazing to have hair like that and I loved colouring her hair today...this is of course a Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy stamp called Windswept...I coloured her with distress inks and used these gorgeous pretty girly papers from Memory box Gossamer collection...I think I maybe got a bit carried away with the buttons though lol...I finished with a satin ribbon, velvet ribbon and bows, and a Prima flower, the sentiments are from a bargain ribbon I bought for 50p in a sale...this is for the Sugar Bowl challenge which this time is the fab sketch from Marlene and Allsorts challenge which is all about the sentiments...have a wonderful Sunday everyone I will speak to you later when I announce the candy winner

Oh she is a beaut Mina! Stunner of a card hun, love it. Once upon a time, I did have hair like that, but Himself got fed up with unblocking the bath plughole so it all got cut off. It used to be wash and wait, now it's wash and go! Hugs, Sxx

Gorgeous card as always Mina - love it to bits! What's all this about buying a wig! This little beauty probably has hair extensions - just like Cheryl Cole's in the adverts!! (Having said that, I would like thick luxurious hair too - mine gets thinner and greyer by the minute)!!

Hi Mina - this is awesome - love your soft colours matched with the deep brown of your buttons and her hair!! Fab!! I got the Celo Green CD for Christmas (mustn't call it an album - my three think I've just got off the ark when I say that!) It is fantastic - listen to it constantly - that and Plan B which is also brilliant!! - Bit of bad language tho!) I've had a meander back through your recent posts today - all wonderful and inspiring!! Juliexx
