Opal the optimist......

coloured with promarkers.
Morning peeps! 
I hope you are all waking up to a wonderful monday! I am all chilled out and relaxed this morning and it feels wonderful. I had the best weekend with my family and it just makes me feel on top of the world!

This morning I have a Stamping Bella Uptown Girl to share with you! this is Opal the optimist and I think she is just fabulous!! I loved colouring her up and bringing her to life, she just makes me smile! I would love a glass of her red wine!!!!

I kept this a pretty CAS card, just using my Blue prints 1 set to cut a scalloped mat and adding a border of this super yummy paper (...I did consider keeping it as stroke only but thought the boss might notice I hadn't used it..!!!).

I finished it off with a few white gel pen highlights and a gorgeous bow using the pink paper cord.

Yesterday my big sister and I took to the world with a little crafty stall at a local dog show. It was so much fun seeing all the different dogs and we got a surprise visit from our cousin Steve which was wonderful. It got rained off a but in the afternoon so we packed up early but I sold 4 cards!! and 3 of them were to complete strangers. How cool is that?!!! I am so excited!!!

On today's list of jobs is Tiddly inking, ironing and sorting out cupboards!! its spring cleanies time!!!

huge hugs Lou xxx
