Very swirly not so pearly..

Good morning blogworld,

And what are we all up to on this wonderful Monday morning then?  I should currently be dropping SWMbO off at school while hubby is trying to get through to the Docs to make an appt for her.

Poor thing is still complaining of her ear hurting and this is four days after the antibiotics finished so off to the Docs we go again, if, as complaining above, we can actually get an appt.

I will let you know!!

In the meantime, and on a more cheerful note, as it is Monday it's time for a new challenge over at The Cutie Pies.  This week, along with your super cute images, we'd like to see pearls and swirls on your creations.

Our lovely sponsor for this challenge is Di's Digi Downloads:

and one lucky winner will win a $10 gift voucher to spend on their gorgeous and adorable digi's in the online store

I've decided to try and use some of my 'proper' stamps (rubber that is!) as I always seem to go for digis at the moment and me poor rubbah is feeling neglected!

So here you go - my swirly but not so pearly creation:

Front shot:

Her close up:

Hmmm, looks a bit like she's floating above the swing doesn't it!!  Masking abilities are not wot they used to be!
I used:

Pergamano - Fairies 2 (but I'm not entirely sure.  I've had all these sets of fairies for years and could never get them to stamp properly finally got them to do it now after sanding the actual stamp - very scary thing to do!  And in me panic I'm not sure I  put the right stamp back in the right packet!)
C.C.Designs - Sugarplums: swing
coloured with my Copics / background with chalks

Bo-Bunny - Country Garden

Nesties - square and scalloped square
Memory Box - swirl

Anything else?
Hobby House - pearls
flowers and ribbon from my stuff
Stickles in her hair (tho why I bothered, it just looks like dandruff in these pics!!!!)

Righty-ho that's your whinge for today- tomorrow's whinge is already being planed. Promise if you enter the challenge and you get me as your commenting person, I won't whinge at you, really I won't.  Mwahh!



A challenge, or two:

Crafting from the Heart: Challenge 8 - Anything Goes / Punches or Dies

Created with Love Challenge: Think Spring - OK so maybe the image isn't strictly Spring - but the colours give me a Spring feeling!  Hope this qualifies me!  Otherwise no problems if you want to remove my entry.

Lovely card Sarah. I like your colouring and pretty papers.
Hope you manage to get a doctors appointment. Amelia-Grace had 3 ear infections in a row, it was awful because nothing would stop the pain.
Thankfully no infections for a while now.

What a pretty stamp, but isn't it a shame when they don't stamp properly - sometimes, using an eraser all over the stamp before you ink it up can help. Lovely card hun.... Hope SWMbO is feeling better soon xx Hugs, Lisa x said...
