FINGERS CROSSED HE WILL GO!.........................

Afternoon all!

Hope you are all toastie at home at the mo and away from this awful weather :o(. We have had a few flakes of snow this afternoon, but nothing compared to up north or Scotland. Hope you peeps are all wrapped up and doing loads of fab crafting :o). I also have some exciting news to share with you. Last night, I was checking my e-mails and the lovely Jackie over at Sketch & Stash has asked me to be a Guest Designer for two challenges!. I was so surprised I had to read it twice lol!. So what this space for challenges 50 & 51 GULP!

Right, enough waffling and onto today's card. This gorgeous image is from the fab Sugar Nellie and it's another of their lovely Simply Sassy stamps. This is the first time I have used ( or attempted lol ) to colour this cutie cause all of the hair!. Not overly happy with her gorgeous locks, but hay ho practice makes perfect as the saying goes. I have teamed her up with some lovely papers from BasicGrey "Marjolaine" paper pad and some ribbon, again nice and simples lol!

This beauty is going into the following challenges :-
Sketch & Stash # 49 ~ Fab Sketch
Fab'n'Funky # 50 ~ Go with the flow
Paper Cutz # 69 ~ Anything goes

Artist Goddess ~ Simply Sassy ~ Sugar Nellie

Thank you for looking and all your lovely comments :o)

Right, what about the shows last night!, I thought Kara was Pamela was excellent in Strictly and Ann was just soooo funny, Matt and Rebecca stole the show in X-Factor and Wagner was just awful grrrrr and I thought Shaun was brilliant with Gillian hehehe and Stacey was a scream when she hit Dom with the stone lol!
What excellent viewing on these cold, snowy nights.

Right I'm off now to catch up with your fab blogs and to do some on line shopping ( for crafts ! ), my lovely hubby said I can buy some goodies for Xmas!, but didn't give me a budget hehehe,

Have a great evening,

Beautiful - her hair looks fine to me!!! I havent really watched the x factor but saw the end last night - the guy who sang Nights in White Satin - wow!!! brilliant. I'm a celeb - it was hilarious - we had to keep repeating the bit with the stone - nearly choked on my coffee. Poor Shaun 3 hrs with Gillian no wonder he was shaking!!! I'm a bit gutted thought she would have been voted for the challenge and then maybe left :-)
