DP2 Challenge........

........over at Mo Manning's Challenge Blog this week, the call is 'Thank Heaven for Little Girls'. I think I can find an appropriate image, living in a household that has a 75% female population! It also worked out very nicely, as my niece has a Birthday coming up very soon....she'll be turning the grand old age of 7. So with her in mind, here is one of my favourite little girls, Bella and her dog Bronte in 'Celebrate', for another of my favourite little girls! Happy Birthday EG.............


So, if you happen to be reading this Auntie Emm, I am technically on time (or even early!) for the Birthday celebrations....yes? Unfortunately, by the time I get it mailed 'across the pond', I probably should have sent the 'white rabbit "Am I Late?"' instead!

I had a little play around with this card. The colouring is done predominantly with Prisma's and just a touch of Copic's for skin. There's also lots of super fine glitter and silver gel pen on her dress. I really wanted Bella to be jumping out of the 'Nestie' so I played around with that.......are 2 arms any more substantial than the 2 antennae from my previous post?.....I think not! Because I wanted her to leap out, this meant I had to mask the main portion of the image, and print again onto the solid DP behind, in order to get the confetti in there. Are you with me? I guess I could have just dotted glitter there, but I wanted to stick to the true Mo Manning image. DP's are from Basic Grey's Kioshi line.

So other than all the other 'bells and whistles' on there, that's it for today's creation.

Before I leave, I just wanted to take a moment to share a little love with all you wonderful 'Followers' and 'Commentators' out there in Blogland. You would think it creates the same effect as a double espresso, from the bounce in my step, after I find 'new activity' on my blog. You have certainly made me welcome in this new little venture. From my Mom, who is single handedly recruiting half of my family (sorry guys!) and anyone she knows to check 'it' out. To my Dad, who has probably never done anything 'crafty' in his life (no offence!), and shared with me on the phone the other night, that he had sat and read my blog from start to finish.........ahhh a proud moment. I also received a comment the other day from Lori Boyd.....the Lori Boyd, creator of those gorgeous 'Lollipop' images I luurve so much..........Oh I'm a happy gal! So once again, thanks to everyone who has taken the time to visit, comment, follow etc.

That said, here is my challenge to each and everyone of you out there in Blogland.............share the love!

Visit a blog + leave a comment = make someone's day!

You know you want to........you'll feel better for it!

How cute this is! She's colored beautifully and there's just the right touch of sparkle. I love the way she's jumping right out of the frame. Thanks for sharing it with us in Mo's Challenge this week.
