First one is from Jo (again!! must be punishing me for helping her spend all her money ;p!)
Not sure what my purpose is, but it's been fun doing it! I would like to pass this on to everyone who comes reads my blog and leaves me comments, as you are the reason I blog and you all definitely have a purpose! (and for anyone who is a regular reader (why, you must be mad!?!) but stay in the background, now's your chance to pop up and say Hi! ;D)
The 2nd award I got, makes me laugh, which is rather appropriate as it came from Debby and I always find her blog entertaining and her creations are always fab! It's this, the 'circle of friends' award, fab isn't it?! Again everyone who comes visit deserves this award but in particular, my fellow DT members on Tilda & Friends ATC and Cute Card Thursdays!
Now if you've managed to read this far its only fair that I should leave you with something to look at, but nothing fancy! This was a quick card I made using one of the fab Kerry Jo stamps. They're clear acrylic stamps and you get 12 absolutely brilliant designs for only £14.99 (that's £1.25 each!). I first came across Kerry Jo on the do crafts forum and couldn't believe how lovely her hand drawn 'doodles' were in her gallery and have been waiting so long for them to be finally turned into stamps!This little oriental lady I first spotted on Kerry's gallery and fell in love with as it reminded me soo much of what I used to try and doodle as a kid down to the hair and the collar and sleeves on her dress (being Chinese, we used to watch these tv period dramas as a kid and I always loved the girls costumes and would try and draw them, so this just takes me back, big time!)
Papers are scraps from an earlier card, the 'double happiness' chinese character is from woodware set, everything else from stash.
There's something for all girls on this sheet - funky fairy, pretty fairy, rock chick, ballerina, cowgirl, pirate, birthday girl, witch , . . .love em all!
