A barrowful of Easter Eggs

Morning Folks!

 Sweet Stampin' is celebrating the season of Easter bunnies, chocolate and Hot Cross buns this week, it would be lovely if you could join us! To be honest, it doesn't seem five minutes since Christmas and here we are nearly Easter - where does the time go lately??
For my card I've blown the dust off a very old PB stamp and inked it up, this is really one of those stamps that only gets an outing once a year, it's called Barrowful. A very CAS design from me today as I was short of time and I also wanted the papers and cute image to be the stars of the show!!

Not sure where he is heading with a wheel barrow full of choccy eggs??

Stamp - Penny Black 'Barrowful'
Papers - First Edition 'Springdrop'
Promarkers to colour and a few pearls from my stash

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and I hope you'll visit the Sweet Stampin' blog to check out the inspiration from my fab teamies!!

I'd also like to join a few challenges:
Simon says Stamp - Cute and cuddly
Penny Black and more - Include a creature
Inky Chicks - Happy Easter

Unusual hair Colour!

Morning Folks!
Sadly my blog has been a little neglected lately, but I'm here this morning to share my DT inspiration for the new challenge just starting over at Sweet Stampin' where we would like to see 


I was a long way outside my comfort zone with this challenge but I'm quite pleased with the final result. I rarely colour images of people, let alone girls with purple hair. The  Gorjuss girl stamp is a sneaky new purchase, called Poppy Wood from Docrafts. Quite a bargain at less than £2 and stamps beautifully - might be adding some more to my collection. The papers are from the same range.

Here's a closer look!! I want my hair this colour for the summer, I've had it a plum / purple but never managed something this vibrant!! Must talk to my hairdresser!!

Stamp - Docrafts Santoro Gorjuss Poppy Wood
Sentiment - LOTV
Coloured with promarkers and chalk inks
Papers - Docrafts Santoro Gorjuss
Die cuts - Spellbinders, Sizzix Swirly Vine and Go Kreate Frilly frames
Flowers, twine, pearls and wire butterfly from stash.

Thanks for taking the time to visit today and for any comments - I love reading them xx
