Feel a bit like the white rabbit!

Good evening blogland,

Well holidays have well and truly hit chez Sarah - SWMbO is now off for two weeks, we've got g'dad staying for a week and I'm already chasing my own tail!

So apologies for this being short (and a bit late!) as I'm trying to do three things at once here - but I am, in all honesty, extremely excited to tell you about the new release over at the All Dressed Up Shop.  Still can't quite believe that I got asked to join this very talented group with some of the most cutest images in blogland!

And here you go - these are the cuties for this month:

Easter Bunny

Just So Cool

Little Flower Girl 

On My Farm

For my little creation I used Little flower girl isn't she the cutest!

Front shot:

Close up:

I coloured her with my Copics and the papers are My Mind's Eye - miss caroline.  I added some hessian stuff, pearls, hearts and chipboard sentiment and I was away!

My first attempt at colouring went slightly (ahem completely!) wrong and while I was trying to throw the image in the bin my Emily took it off me and finished it off in her own way:

Got some competition there, eh!

So that's me off now - really must go and start dinner.

But please don't forget that the current challenge over at the blog is Monochrome and any of these images would perfect for joining in.  The prize is three images of your choice!

Also why not pop over to our Facebook Group and share there too - we don't bite, promise.

Well that's about it from me for today - don't forget to pop back to the blog all this month for more inspiration!  


A challenge, or two:

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge: #23 - Anything Goes

CreativeCornerChallenges: April Showers bring May Flowers - I thought flowers - hope that's OK

Crafting from the heart: Challenge 13 - Anything Goes

Hey, Sarah! Know what you mean about not having time to do everything, but if you asked what I've been doing, I couldn't tell you!?! (and mine aren't even off for Easter yet!)
Such a pretty card and you're definitely getting to grips with the Copics as your colouring is FAB - LOVE the dimension you've got on her hat and hair! Also lovin' Emily's take on it with all those gorgeous flowers! Hugs, Lisa x
