LMM Lydie

It's Tooooosday, and a day nearer to my hollibobs, hurrah!  5.00 Friday seems a long way off at the moment, but I am sure it will arrive on time.  

Regular readers will know that I have just taken the plunge into the world of Little Miss Muffet stamps - I only bought two in my first order, but now I have been paid I might have just ordered another one or four, lol.

I adore the Polka Dot Pals stamps, and it was so hard to choose which one to have first, but in the end I settled on Lydie, and I am so pleased, she is a cutie and a dream to colour.
I have coloured her with Polychromos pencils for her hair, the pink heart and, her polka dots and Distress Inks (ReInkers) for the rest of her
Papers are LOTV Always & Forever patterned and solids
And the dies are Memory Box Loopy Border and Small Ringlets
(thought they would make a nice change from flowers)
and the sentiment is LOTV from the Scroll Sentiments

Squirrel Tip:  A neat little trick for keeping small details whiter than white - colour them in with a pure white oil based pencil because it resists the Distress Inks and your details stay nice and clean, hence her sparkling polka dots!
Anyhoo, that is me done for today, hope you have a good one.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Trouble is, hubby's now realised that there are fewer parcels of crafty goodies arriving on the doormat because I have am having my orders delivered to work instead! LOL Lovely card hun.

The bubbles/loops/whatever they may be called really are neat on this card. It could be that she's day dreaming. They are definitely different from flowers and a nice touch to boot.
