Picture It! Photo Inspiration Challenge

Morning!!! How are you all? Are you ready for a new challenge? Before I tell you about it I want to say a big thank you to everyone who entered our Anything Goes Challenge ... we had an amazing amount of stunning entries. Make sure you head over to the Challenge Blog to see if you were one of the winners :- D

This fortnight's challenge was chosen by Lisa who has sadly stepped down from the DT for a break but we hope to welcome her soon :-D

Lisa has chosen a Photo Inspiration Challenge...something I struggle with! I'm looking forward to seeing your interpretation of the picture below.

I am still on a Skinny Malinky high and decided to use Kera...she is so classy and sophisticated....a bit like me....not lololol! she is...let me know what you think...

It's my SIL's birthday next week and thought it would be a good idea to be on time for a change ;-D I printed Kera on PTI white cs and coloured her with my Copics. I added Glossy Accents to her glasses and a couple of her bags as well as some glitter. I wanted a large orange button and after a bit of digging found a packet of brand new self adhesive ones I bought about 7 years ago....see, I KNEW I needed them lol. I also bought a pack of purple ones so keep your eye out for those ;-D

I added white dots to the green bag with my Inkssentials pen but I'm not happy with it's performance. If anyone has a white pen they swear by can you let me know please.

I really like the way the card turned out and I hope SIL will like it too.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Die Cuttin Divas - Anything Goes Use a Die (scallop border)
Deep Ocean Challenge - Button up!
Divas by Design - Use Some Orange
Whimsy Stamps Challenge - Anything Goes

MIL and FIL are over at the moment. They haven't seen Coen since July and are totally besotted with him. SIL (who the b'day card is for) sent the bear hat Coen is wearing below... so cute!!!

His big cousin Ciara sent him the little vampire outfit he's wearing below. Don't worry, he doesn't have any makeup on...I altered it with the app on my phone. He just happened to have his mouth open like a vampire when Nic too the picture lol.

That's all I have for you today. Make sure you check out the DT and GD stunning makes. Oh before I forget... after GD's Chris and Kath begged and sent a rather large cheque, I have agreed to let them stay on...fantastic!!! 

Catch ya later x
