green roses and blond hair...

Good morning yes its little old virtual me, don't you just love technology, its so brilliant isn't it...I'm away but all the work I have posted is being shown up on time (well hopefully)...btw I asked my Dad if he would like an ipod for his Birthday and he asked me whats an ipod, so I showed him mine and explained all about it...he was gobsmacked that you could get so many songs on that 'teeny tiny little thing' and how exactly do you get them in, I left it at I will load them for you Dad you don't need to worry about that, I have visions of him trying to ram a cd into this teeny little thing lol, so he decided he would love one, as hes hard of hearing I think it will make his music much easier to listen too without deafening everyone else don't you...I asked him did he wanted a pink one lol...my card for today is for the Sugar Nellie DT, this is the gorgeous Goldilocks from the Homegrown Manga range, just look at all that lush hair, shes a dream to colour and I used distress inks for her...the amazingly yummy is from the Crate Paper Cottage collection and is called Bloom, those roses are stunning aren't they...the fab sketch is from the Truly Scrumptious challenge...well Im on my back today so normal service will be resumed asap...whatever your up today have a super fantastic one

Another gorgeous job of coloring. And I love the color choices. I don't do a lot of green cards, but should as they are lovely. I have to laugh at the vision of your dad trying to deal with today's new world. My dad would be the same way!
