SWEET FAITH.....................................

Morning all!

Still miserable here in Southend and still no sign of any sun :o(  Never mind, at least we can all stay in and play with our crafty stash lol! I'm off to Farnborough at the end of the week to the Make It show and I cannot believe a year has passed since I last went! Where does the time go lol!

So onto today's card and I think I'm pleased with it, wasn't to sure on the colours this time and I must say I found colouring this image a wee bit tricky! It's one of the new digi stamps from Sugar Nellie's adorable range. I think it's because they have the shading in already and I'm not use to it lol! What do you think?? and the card looks so much nicer in "real life"!

This cutie is going into the following challenges :-
Friday Sketchers # 142 ~ Fab Sketch

Well what do you think? I'm not to keen on the colour of her face or is it me :os and she is so adorable don't you think :o)

Also I would like to share this beautiful card I was sent yesterday from the lovely Sandy's granddaughter. Her name is Grace and I sent her a couple of digistamps from Digistamp Boutique ~ also called Grace!

Isn't it adorable! and little Grace is only 5 and very talented :o)

Anyway, I'm off to have a play in my crafty room and have another go at these digi images.I hope you all have a lovely day and do loads of crafting.

Catch you all laters

Debbie said...

She's gorgeous. Very vintage looking, but not shabby chic!! Her face colour is perfect to me, and the papers look great with this image. The little card off Grace is so sweet.
I am so jealous you are going to the Make it. I went three years ago when It was in the Rebox centre about two hours away from me, but they stopped it and only do Farnbougher now. The one I go to in Harrogate next month has taken over that slot and is just as good, so I shouldn't moan, but the Make it was always my favorite!...Have a fab time. Debbiexx
