Not a total girlie girl!

Hello blogworld.

Hope everyone is doing well, I wonder did you get a lot of rain today?  We certainly did - it's been bucketing it down!

I've also been running around like the proverbial blue a***d fly (cleaned that up a bit in case I offend anyone - but I'm sure you know what I mean!) - SHMbO has started swimming lessons after school and I also go swimming while she's at school.  So didn't get much chance to sit today!

Still I had a card that I had to get done for a friend's little girl and so, apart from helping hubby put the floor down in the new room, that's what I have been doing this week.

Now my friend's little girl loves getting her face painted, but not fairies or butterflies or even tigers - nope Asta likes zombies, ghouls and witches!!

So when I saw this image, I knew it would suit her down to the ground.  Not sure the rest of the card quite suits - but I love the image.

Front shot:

The close up:

The Arty Farty:

I used:

Digi stamp:
Pollycraft: Lil Dumplings - Frankie
Coloured with my Promarkers


First Edition - Dreamcatcher

Anything else?
Bazill Embossed card (I know it's got a proper name, but I can't remember!)
Craftwork Cards - sentiment
flower and gems from my stuff

Talking of close ups, I've been staring at the camera today myself!  I've been debating whether to be brave enough to put a picture of me in my Blogger profile and I finally decided to do it.  You'll have to tell me what you think of it.  Do I look 42 and knackered, 'cause that's how I feel.  Oh and don't I have a hugemoungus rudder of a nose!!!!

See you soon,


A challenge or two:

Sketch Saturday : Week #276

Passion for Promarkers: Embossing - the Bazill paper comes embossed with dots.  Hope that counts?

Love the image, sort of thing my Amelia likes. She's not really a girly girl, likes anything to do with monsters and dinosaurs.
Great pic of yourself, you look so different with short hair.

This is such a cute little image...I'm sure she will love her little ghoul!

LOVE your shorter hair and you do not look knackered at all...I'm sure it is just the renos that are making you feel tired...It is such a huge undertaking and can be tiring and suck the energy out of you!
I know I felt like that when we did our place!
