A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Lady Maddie

Good Morning all - hope you've all had a brilliant weekend!  Mine flew by, as per usual, and back to the grindstone today but, before I tootle off to work, I thought I'd share with you my little creation from yesterday.

Here is the delightful 'Lady Maddie Gatsby'

Isn't she just adorable in her fancy attire?  This li'l lady is another brand new digi by the ever so talented artist, Heather Valentin, and you can find her HERE at the Lacy Sunshine store.

I coloured this little beauty with both Copics and Pro Markers - I added a few more pleats here and there and am pretty pleased with how she turned out :)

The backing cards are both from Kanban - I'm having a good ole rummage into my old stash and enjoying my finds along the way!  I added a strip of lace and beautiful velvet ribbon, also from my stash!  The flowers are a mixture of The Hobby House and Wild Orchid Crafts.  

A little close up of this gorgeous gal!

Hope you like my little creation today and, if you get a chance, why not head on over to the store and see what other lovely ladies Heather introduced to the world yesterday.

I'd like to enter this little lady into the following:
