Sod's Law

Isnt' it typical that when I have so much work to do for Monday the sun is shining like there's no tomorrow and the temperature is 23 degrees! I haven't been buried in my workroom the whole day...I took an hour out to sit in the sun and top up my fading tan :-) I don't need a lot of time in the sun to go brown which really bugs the heck out of my family and friends. I know it's not good for you but I do use a minimum of factor 15 on my body and 30 on my face and let's face it, we do feel better when we have a bit of colour.
Now I promised you a new image from a new illustrator and here she is....
This is Robyn and her illustrator is the very fantastic Matthew Harding. I'd wanted a little girl for ages (not a real one lol) and once I had Nikki and Ruby established I went on the hunt. Like with finding Moira I googled illustrators (what did we do before Google??!!) and went through dozens before I found Matthew. When I thought he was the one for the job I emailed him and that was that! We were a few weeks (4 to be exact but that's my fault because I'm so particular) getting her face right but once we did everything just flowed.
There are 8 different styles of Robyn...I can't wait to get the rest coloured up and show you!

I just love her...she's so stinkin' cute lol!

These epoxy dots have been a great find :-D
I hope you like Robyn....I would love to know what you think of her so drop me a comment.
I'm going to fire up the BBQ and get the burgers ready. Enjoy the sun but remember to wear your sun cream!!
Catch ya later x

Kerry, I only wish I'd been outside in the sun instead of baking in the ward! and back to do it again tomorrow. Robyn is very cute and can't wait to see the other new stamps!

Robyn is great. I just loved the expression on her face. Looking forward to seeing the rest.
