Hi, good morning.. not doing lots of housework today ... just some quickie things and the usual clothes!!! Don't feel like today, and so much prefer to do a card or two! He he :)

And here is my card for today..

I'm really pleased how my card turned out today using Sitting Amy from Crafty Sentiments. Isn't she adorable :) Yesterday I was moaning about some of my promarkers going dead and so today I used the vanilla instead of the Ivory for her face, plus the usual Dusky Pink, Blush and Pastel Pink and I think she came out rather nice. A bit more tanned.. but what do you expect.. Summer's here now and she went for a tan! Not so sure about the hair though, first time I coloured black hair. The top backing paper is from the Cardmaking and Papercrafts magazine and the striped one is from Papermania, and did I tell you from where I got the stamp? Yes, I did say, in a previous post but now I'm using the stamp, so thanks again to the team at The Crafty Pad Challenges from where I won this adorable stamp xx
