Saturdays Selection

Good morning everyone on this beautiful Saturday morning, it certainly cheers you up to wake up to the sun shining through the window. I am slowly finding my way around Vista, I will not give in!!!. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend wherever you are.

Wow!!!!! these Annie stamps from Charmed Cards and Crafts are so cute I am really in love with them and hope they will soon be bringing us more, she lends herself so well to decoupage, I have stamped her head, collar and front leg twice and layered them up on the bottom layer. Lots of roses again, this time I have painted round the edges of the petals with Perfect Pearls and IRL they really stand out, shame cannot catch it in a photo.

Annie has been coloured with Copics on Whisper White, and the lovely scrummy papers are from Daisy Bucket. I am pleased with the inside of this one.
