Midsummer Tilda

Thursday, November 01, 2012

Hello Hello - I'm back!! Well kind of...lol!!! So we have all moved in...lots of work still to do (Especially downstairs in my one day craft room lol...seems so far away!!). The worst thing is that our internet provider cancelled our internet after only one day and kept the old address and now we have to wait another week for it to be reconnected! Ack! So I am very very behind in blogging/visiting everyone as I am having to pop on at work :)

So today is exciting!! A few little bits and pieces to let you know. Firstly I have made the very sad decision to leave Crafts and Me :( Beautiful images and what a talented bunch of ladies...I will miss you all :) In the meantime however, I have been asked to join one of my favourite sketch challenge blogs; CLP Challenge Blog!! :D Seriously....those girls are MEGA talented...I am a little scared! hehe! My card today fits the November challenge so be sure to stop by. 

And while you are checking out different blogs...I am also guest designing this week for the brand new challenge blog Marvelous Magnolia! Woo woo!!! I am really enjoying colouring up my maggies and so thrilled to be asked to guest design with the amazing Rina and her talented chickies. Please do check out the challenge blog and I know you definitely won't be disappointed!! :)

Yum look at that dress on Midsummer Magnolia! Isn't she a total cutie pie :) Here are the colours that I used on her:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Hair: E11, E13, E15, E18
Dress: Pink R81, R83, R85, R89 Green G21, G28, G29

Thanks so much for stopping by and I truly appreciate all of your kind words during my stressful time! :) hehe I am excited to be back - I have missed you all!!! xx
