Sorry for the neglect!

Blimey - I didn't post at all in April! My excuse is that the House has been demanding my attention (ie the Boyf has been writing lists of jobs that need doing.) We have decorated all the bedrooms now and started on the dining room. But what I've been mostly busy with is my garden. Its took me ages to weed and plant everywhere. Its looking good now and all my veggies are doing well - We have spinach, peas, carrots, tomatoes, beetroot, lettuce, pak choi and so much more that I won't bore you with... but I may post a picture someday soon...(I know - spoil you readers!)

So - here are my only two creations from recent times. 

I don't think this one is finished?? It needs a greeting but not sure what yet! I used my doodlebug glitter again over orange promarkers to give it the scaly sparkle. The Mermaid is a digital image from Some Odd Girl and I will enter it into the challenge as I am loving the orange and pink colour combo at the moment. The patterned papers are also Doodlebug. 

This image is another from Stamping Bella - Uptown Girls range. I am loving these at the mo. I've paper pieced with paper from Crate Paper On Trend range and then used some strips of the same range down the side. I added some co-ordinating ribbon, doodlebug Sequins and resin flowers. I stamped the greeting from a set I have from Paper Smooches and added a few gems. The photo doesn't show it but I used Wink of Stella to accent the chair and also glossy accents on the wine bottle and glass.

Well - that's all for now. Promise not to leave it for so long next time! (:(|)x
