so very loved...


Good morning everyone hows your weekend going? did you have a good day yesterday, I hope you did...the ice was terrible here yesterday and I went onto the deck and nearly ended up on my tooshie a couple of times lol...we went out with my Dad for a coffee and a few shops to get today's lunch and would you believe I forgot all about going to the craft shop...I know shock horror eh, I'm sure that's breaking one of the crafter's commandments lol...I got a bit distracted in the Poundstore...I just cannot go into that shop and buy just one thing can you...£15 later and a couple of bags purchased the craft shop went completely out of my mind so dear me I will have to go during the week instead...my card for today is using this gorgeous little girlie cutie...I will give you three guesses who drew this beauty...yeah like you need three, shes from Mo's Digital Pencil and is called Trudy's Party Dress, shes a stunning dressing up doll and comes with a dress for you to design in whatever paper you want...I cut the top of the dress and just used the skirt this time, but I think it works great doesn't it with her little undershirt glittered instead of the dress top...I coloured her with my usual distress inks and teamed her up with some amazing papers from the lush Kaisercraft - Curiosity 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad, I bought this from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I love Kaisercraft pads don't you not only are the designs beautiful and perfect for cutting out but there is four pages of paper sentiment tags, embellishments and ribbons to use on your cards or pages too...the so very loved sentiment, rose button and skirt are all from the pad too...all I added to my card was three cute buttons from my stash...the lush sketch is from the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Creative Moments Challenge and Digi Galore Challenge too...we are having the whole family over for lunch today so would need to get sorting veg and things out I think...I hope the roads aren't too slippy today as I worry about them all driving in this weather but then I guess its a Mums job to worry isn't it...whatever your up to today have a warm snug one

Oh she is fabulous Mina, and I adore her dress! and I think you're right, it works beautifully as just a skirt too!
Although I have to admit I am baffled about how it could be possible to forget the craft shop!? It's probably just me, but that's pretty much the only thing that goes through my mind! (And I've just realised... Technically the closest craft shop to my house is LOTV! This explains why I'm broke! lol) x

Could this special creation be for your special daughter? Gorgeous papers here Mina and I do like the sequined top and paterned skirt too.

You had me going for a moment trying to figure out what they sold at a pound store. Then the light bulb came on ha ha We call them Dollar Stores here in the US. LOL.
