Where’s The Blonde???????

Morning sweet peeps and hope you are all OK today :)

It’s a tad warmer this morning thankfully – not quite tropical but at least it’s above freezing now.

It’s that time of the week when we hop over the pond and catch up with what’s happening at the  Simon Says Stamp Challenge

and this week our Domi has done a sketch for us ….

… and here it is.

As always, Heidi is giving a whopper of a prize …..

to one lucky winner which they can spend ….

Simon Says Stamp

… here.

So what did I do then?

Ta daaaaaa, it’s this bad boy here.

Like I said  on yesterday’s post, I decided to give this little sweetie darker hair than I usually do so she is a mid brown, sort of coppery colour. Which is quite like myself I guess, but the difference is that I am desperately trying to get rid of the brown / pink / red colours from my hair and go back to my own colour. I didn't realise that  it would take sooooooooo long to sort it out but hopefully before too long I will be there (pleeeeeeeeze hurry up!!)

So maybe this was a subliminal thing?

Anyhoos, enough rambling about me barnet – the image I used here is CC Designs Sweetheart Birgitta and I coloured her with these Copics -

Skin – E000, E00, E11, E21, R00, R11, R20

Hair – E25, E29, E35, E51, E71

Clothes – C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, C7, Black, R05, R17, R27, R59

I also dabbed a bit of Glossy Accents onto her shoes so that they looked like patent leather – I made a complete hash of it if I’m being honest,  but never mind!!!

The papers are My Minds Eye 6 x 6 Life of The Party paper pack – love these :)

Not too much faffing with the flowers today and I think the simplicity of them is right for the card cos the colours are very strong and anything too fancy wouldn’t look quite right.

IMHO of course!!

I used dies from the Spellbinders Rose Creations set and just added a Hero Arts  little gem in the centre, and  I trailed some pearls along the side as well. You can find all them all here.

I cut the circle from a Grand Circle Nestabilities set  and edged it with some cut up bits of a strip of  paper lace made with a MS Eyelet Lace PATP Punch.

I seem to be getting slightly addicted to the sewing - you may have noticed lol!!

So there you go and that’s me done for today. I’ll be back tomoz with some more cardage so I say toodle pip and see you then. If you get a sec, do nip over and check out the DT cards cos as always they are pretty darn good :)

Have the fabbiest of days and hugs to all xxx

Red is like the hardest ever colour to get out your hair! I'm sort of purple at the mo but the red keeps coming back but then I have been dying it red for ooo 10 or more years now (better than grey lol) I love this Dawny all the bright cheery boldness of this is fab! Hugs Rebekah xx
