Oh my gosh she is so sweet. I totally adore how you've coloured her up and those branches with butterfly and that lace. Amazing. Just wanted to say that if you tried visiting me yesterday and use google chrome, that malware problem was on another blog I had on my bloglist so my blog had no malware at all. It is all in the clear now, so you can stop by anytime you want. Have a lovely weekend. Hugs Bettina xx
