And another long gap!!

Hello blogworld

I will get back to posting more regularly - promise - but it won't be until later this week when SHMbO has gone back to school and after I've tided up from the last two weeks worth of not being able to tidy up properly!!

Anyway for now I'm here and it's a very nice reason to be here too - the first challenge of the New Year for The Cutie Pies and this time it's a lovely sketch to follow and a great couple of sponsors.

The sponsors are:


The DT were very kindly allowed to pick a digi from Birdie Brown and this is my choice, now isn't she just the sweetest!

Front shot:

The arty farty:

I used:

Digi image:
Birdie Brown - retrogirl 03 - coloured with a combination of Promarkers and Copics (oooh another slippery slope there!)

Nestie square

Glitz - Pretty in Pink

Anything else?
Flowers, ribbon and pearls from my stuff
The gem swirl is new!

So why not pop on over to the blog, take a look at the sketch - it's a fab one! - and the wonderful examples my Teamies have made.


A challenge, or two:

In the Pink: Challenge #10 - Pink and Pearlie

Crafting when we can: Challenge 35 - A few of my favourite things - they would be: the nestie, Promarkers, flowers, gems.  Pretty much all of it!!

Totally Gorjuss: Anything Goes with Ribbon
