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!

Molly Fishing and a fabulous new sponsor!

Good morning everyone and a big 'Hi' to my lovely new followers!  

It's time for the start of a fresh challenge over at Challenges 4 Everybody today, which, as always, is everyone's favourite ANYTHING GOES!  I'm super excited to tell you that we also have a brand new sponsor, which is the fabulous Heather Valentin of Lacy Sunshine.  Our winner will receive a huge $20  voucher to spend in the Lacy Sunshine store and our runner up will receive 2 digis of their choice! Heather's beautiful images are definitely not to be missed so be sure to enter to be in with a chance of winning this fantastic prize!

The team have created some gorgeous makes using these beautiful images and I'd love for you to pop over and take a peek.

Here's my creation today showcasing the adorable Molly Fishing!
 Oh my gosh! How incredibly cute is she?!?

For today's card, I followed this week's fabulous sketch from A Gem of A Challenge.  The beautiful backing papers are Maja Design Spring Basics and can be found HERE at Live and Love Crafts.  The lilac and white flower sprays, as well as the shabby seam binding, can also be found at LLC.  Flowers and lace are from my stash and my cute little fish charm is from The Hobby House.   The beautiful butterfly is a Cheery Lynn Designs die.
I coloured up little Molly with Copics in the following colours:

Skin:  E000, 00, 21, R11   Green tones:  YG11, YG06, G14
Hair/Bucket:  W1, 3, 5, 7  Purple tones:  BV02, 13, 31
