I want a pink spotty balloon too...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and happy...hooray thank you Mr Blogger I have my photos back at the right size again...wow what a difference in the weather yesterday, we had rain, clouds and even a real pea soup fog last night...I always find fog creepy, I think it goes back to the days of Hammer horror films when all the baddies came out of the fog lol...I have great fun playing away in my craft room yesterday but then was hopping mad last night as I wanted to blog hop and couldn't get online at all...this is becoming a pain in the bum now, I keep wondering if its worth moving isp's before we find a new house or just bear with it until then...of course I could be minus a front window and a laptop by then lol, anyway I gave up trying after a couple of hours and had an early night instead...but while I was in my craft room I was having a bit of a rummage and found this sheet of lush paper (the stripe is the back of it) and just knew exactly which image I would use for it...it had to be I Heart You from Mo's Digital Pencil...I know it sounds strange but I really love colouring white, well I don't exactly colour white I colour the shadows, oh well you know what I mean don't you...I love how you can bring something to life just with a bit of shading and a teeny bit of colour on the cheeks and ears...well I hope I brought it to life anyway, I used distress inks for her and paper pieced her balloon...oh btw the paper is from Rayher and is called Spots & Stripes (now that name didn't take much imagination did it lol)...the fab sketch is from The Sweet Stop and I'm also entering it for the Digi Doodle Shop challenge too...I'm off to Town this morning for a much needed haircut and then I need a pair of shoes to go with a dress I had forgotten I had until I was searching for a t shirt in my wardrobe...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one

That is so cute Mina must say I am more and more tempted with that image everytime Isee a card with it. Enjoy your shop supermarket for me but a put lunch after and a visit to the gardening centre so one compensates the other.

That elephant is absolutely precious, and yes, with your coloring, she certainly comes to life! You are so right, those papers are perfect with her.

Beautiful card and love the image --my daughter hates the fog too reminds her of the film by the same name,must admit though it is very eerie especially when you can hear the fog buzzers which we are pretty near!!!

And you colour white so beautifully! Fab fun papers and balloon. Love your big button too. You might want a spotty balloon but I'm torn between wanting the tutu or the elephant herself! Sorry I haven't been by. I've been away again and I've been whacked! I will try and read all your recent posts before bed though! Hugs, Lesley
