My First Guest Spot :)x

How exciting!!

I was so thrilled when Lorraine invited me to do a guest spot over at Simon Says Stamp weekly challenge. Well of course, I said YES PLEASE, so this week the challenge is

And this is the sketch.

This is a fab challenge peeps cos there a Simon Says Stamp prize up for grabs - $25 to spend in the shop, and it is a fab shop, full of delish stuff. Not only that, but Heidi also pays for your shipping so you get to spend the whole $25 on gorgeous stash!!

And if that wasn't enough to wet yer whistles girls, there is hidden candy in the DT's blogs, but you have to go and visit them to find it. So pop over here and have a mooch and check it all out

So this is me card. I used one of my fave Tildas - love this one - and coloured her with the usual PMs and GD combi.

I'm sooo predictable, I know!!

All the papers are PP - my fave Little Fleurs collection which is sadly no longer available.

And my MSBP, well that got dragged out but I did something a bit different with it and used strips to create the offset background element. It reminds me a bit of those flapper dresses that they wore in the 20's (or was it the 30s? can't remember. Thoroughly Modern Millie style - I'm sure you know what I mean lol xx).

I've over-done the angle here but you can see thpunched strips hopefully :)
The ribbon was from the US - xxx and hugs to my friend for sending it to me xxx I am being very mean with it now cos there isn't much left.

Cry cry !!!

Here's the funny angle pic so you can see the dimension - plenty of that here!!

Don't forget to check out this challenge peeps cos there's some fab stuff up for grabs. I have to say thank you to Lorraine and the girlies for having me - I enjoyed it loads xxxx.

I'll leave you with a bit of a sneakie peekie for tomorrow's Willow Sketchie Challenge. It's a fabbie sketch by another lovely Heidi - the Crafty Goat Girl herself xxx

And there is another new download for you to feast yer eyes on..

Methinks it might be something Chrimbly :)
See ya tomorrow and have a wonderful day xxxxx
