its a double...

Good morning everyone, I hope your all well, sorry there wasn't a card yesterday but my head is so busy worrying about my Dads operation today that I just couldn't make one, I'm sure everyone who knows me had kinda guessed that, I know its not a major operation and will be over in a few hours but its so important to us and after all...hes my precious Dad isn't he...I hope you all joined in with my candy yesterday as the prize is a lush one and well worth winning...its a long post today so I wont waffle on too long lol...my first card today is for our Blog Hop at Mo's Digital Pencil Dreamteam this month its our lovely Debby's turn to host and she chose Verdigris (a touch of green), you should have arrived here from the wonderful DEBBIE who is bound to have something wonderful to show you as her work is always so stunning...I chose this gorgeous little cutie from Mo's Digital Pencil called Easter Carly, there's two versions of Carly and the other is with a carrot...only Mo can draw that beautiful little face...I coloured her with distress inks and used a mix of K&Co and My Minds Eye papers, I finished with some lush ribbons and a few Petaloo sparkly flowers and velvet leaves and sticky gems...

your next stop on our hop is the fabulous POPS and don't forget to leave a comment on everyone's blog for a chance to win one of two $5 vouchers for Mo's Digital Pencil...the fab sketch I used is from The Sweet Stop and I'm also entering this for the Simon Says Stamp challenge and the Allsorts challenge.
Right now for the next one, are you all still with me or wandered off lol?...this one if for our new challenge at Colour Create challenge, this time is our wonderful teamie Sharon's turn to host and she chose the stunning combo of Pink, Blue, Sage and Cream/White, I love this combo as I can always find lush papers in these combos, so fantastic choice Sharon, the added option (which I forgot about oops) is use something ripped or torn...I used this fantastic image from High Hopes stamps, isn't she fantastic, I love love love that hair and she made me smile while I was colouring her, she is called Annie with her Kitty

shes on sale too (even better) over at Bunny Zoe's Crafts, I coloured her with distress inks and paper pieced part of her fabulous dress with some of the lush papers I used from K&Co Julianne 6x6 paper pad...love this pad soooooooo much...I finished with a mix of rose some punched leaves and a lush rich pink ribbon and bow, the sentiment is from my stash...the fab sketch is from Sunday Sketch and Stamp and I'm also entering it for the Crafty Bloggers Network challenge too...I cant wait to see what you come up with for our challenge this time

phew that was a long one wasnt it thanks for sticking with it and listening to me whinging on...I'm off to try and keep my mind occupied today so I'm not thinking too much, I so wanted to go with my Dad, but with his 'I don't need a bloody audience' attitude didn't think it was a good idea for us all to go lol...whatever your up to today have a fantastic day and don't forget your comments for the hop to stand a chance of winning

Late commenting on this, but......
1) I know your Dad's surgery went well and he is so funny telling you to stay home. (Don't you hate it when they are right?)LOL
2) Mo's little girl is absolutely precious and your coloring perfectly enhances it.
3) This little girl and her cat are pure personality. Absolutely love her. I'm going to have to have a peek at the blog to see more.

Have a great day. Linda
