Callings All Dinks …..

Hi peeps and I’m back again!!!

Today over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge we have a very special

Summer Holiday Children’s Challenge


Anything Goes

So next time you hear those inevitable summer holiday words, ‘ Muuuuummmmm I’m booooored, you know what to do - get the little treasures crafting and join in the fun.  It’s open to anybody aged between 2 and 16 and you have until Monday 29th August at 6pm CET ( 5pm UK time) so that gives you a whole 4 weeks to enter.

And you can enter as many times as you like as long as it is a new creation :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi and we have 2 fabulous prizes on offer !!! not one but TWO $25 vouchers to the wonderful Simon Says Stamp Superstore :-)


And of course we have a very special Dinky DT so if you get a sec, nip over the the main blog and see what they’ve done. 

So here’s my little poppet …

.. and don’t be fooled by that butter wouldn't melt expression,  cos it would.

And this is what she did ..

Now I have to say that this is a real improvement on her last Tilda who did look a bit poorly around her mouth (and she doesn’t even have one lol!!!) This was actually her second attempt at the colouring as her first one had bright yellow skin (Pro Markers – still not allowed near the Copics, mean old Grandma), so she looked severely jaundiced.

Normally I wouldn't  intervene, hard as it is, but this time I just had to step in and explain that it might be better to use Blush to colour her face - she took it well to be fair.  But apart from the cutting of the lace, she did it all herself and I think she did an OK job, bless her.

So if you have any little crafties on your house, why not  get them to have a go and let them loose on your stash? OK not the pens, but maybe the rest of it.

Right I’m off to do the next few jobs on me list but I’ll see you tomoz with some cardage seeing as the hand is much better now.

Have a great day and hugs to all xxx
