Milly plays along at Sketch Saturday - GDT card

Here I am again .... can you tell I have been abandoned by the men in my life!! I have been having a nice afternoon playing with a gorgeous stamp Janet sent me from Pink Gem Designs . Isn't she just gorgeous, the stamp is called Birthday Milly . All the products on the website have 15% off until the end of January (apart from vouchers) so hurry up and snag some bargains!!!

I have followed the sketch on this weeks Sketch Saturday and have even managed not to rotate it or anything, lol. I usually tend to choose my papers first and then colour my image but the last few time I have coloured my image first and then had a good old look through my papers to see what matches. This is a great way of digging out all those old papers you have forgotten about. I have had this paper pad for over a year I think and hardly used it but the colours seemed just right for my image.

As you can see I am still in love with stickles - it is everywhere but who cares ..... you can't have too much sparkle in your life can you :o)

Lots of flowers too. I am becoming even more of a flower addict and am in danger of spending far too much money on them but they are just so pretty I will forgive myself. I am learning to stop stroking things and start using them - so much more fun. Have a lovely evening - I am going to watch 'Got to Dance' on Sky 1. It looks really good and will fill the hole left by X Factor. Have a great week back at work xxxx
