Aloha....

WOW, what a beautiful day today is.... The sun is shining and ohhh its beautiful.... for the first time in years, its cooler in my house than it is outside! And the kids can play in the garden and I don't have to lock the house up! Its so nice! 

Well I have managed to catch up with most of the washing, need to get it all away tonight oh and unpack, but its far too nice to do it now... ummmm other than that.... well yes I have crafted.  
I had such withdrawal symptoms I just had to create something!  

But I had to do my rounds first, and I was quite happy when I did, I found that I won Top Three at Cards for Men... I will add my badge to the side later! 

Anyway.... 

This is the beautiful Cali from Saturated Canary, I purchased her a few weeks ago, printed her and she had sat there.  I am so happy with how she has turned out! Its been the 1st one Im happy with for a while! my attempts recently have seriously disappointed me! Oh and yes... I had to take the photos in my garden!!  Don't the colours look fab!


The paper is from the Prisma 6x6  Sparkling Spring stack, I have had it sat in my stash for AGES.... mmmm so glad i came across it! I used a black brad from my stash... just to tie a bit more black in! She was coloured with copics, as it was don't in a rush as the kids were trying to nab my pens, I don't know what colours exactly! I also added some plain twine I had brought from the ribbon girl.... I need to start keeping better tabs on my stash.... keep forgetting what I have!

Here is a close up of her.... 


Love her hair! So so happy with how it turned out!

Here is the sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.... 
Again, I forgot I had this one! Just felt it fitted rather well with the mage! 


Well I hope you like her! I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;
