Di Hickman/ Split Coast Stampers

Hi all,I haven't been blogging much lately, I've just been soooo busy! I forced myself to get something done today though and here's the resultThe Challenge at SSC was to use ruffles so I made a paper ruffle to add to the side. I used the sketch from Di Hickman to give me the layout idea -which, of course I turned on it's side - It's the rebel in me!!!

The image is from the Dottie at work collection and it's my first attempt at using my Prisma Colour Pencils, I know it doesn't show them off very well but give me time.


Do You like my new look blog? It took me ages to put my fave blogs back up but I got there in the end, I just have all the other bits and bobs to put back on now. I've removed my music because I read a thread on a forum about what people most dislike about peoples blogs and nearly everyone said music - So it's gone!

I got quite excited today because the June Issue of Crafts Beatiful arrived through my door and I've got a double page feature in ther this month and some 'Ask the designer' tips in the free book. Yippee!

I'm so sorry I haven't been visiting blogs for a while, I really need to catch up.

Hi Louly
Great dotty, very topical too. Lollipop ladies have been in the news as they now carry cameras in the lollipop, in that black rectangle bit & a bit of trivia for you - years ago that bit was blackboard so that they could write down the car plate no, if they did not stop.
Thanks for stopping by my blog & commenting on the wedding card, you asked about the butterfly, if you click on it it should take you the site I got it. If not let me know & I will let you have the html.
Bye sadie xx
