So True....!

I stopped drooling from afar and finally treated myself to some fabulous October Afternoon papers. I just love these papers but they are a little hard to get hold of as everyone seems to love them as much as me! I have a few more 8x8 pads on my wishlist, but I guess I'll just have to wait until they come back in to stock :o(

I really enjoyed playing with this fun stamp as it tied in to my papers perfectly. Isn't that sentiment SO true?! I have to admit though, it took me a blinkin' age to colour in that dress. I'm quite heavy handed with my colouring and so I do not know how I managed to avoid all of those polka dots on her dress!

Goodie List........ 
Stamps: 'Housework Diva' by the Diva Collection from DTDF.
Paper: 'Report Card' by October Afternoon. 
Copic Markers: E00, E11, E50, R02, R35, R37, R59, YR23, Y15, Y17, B32, B39, B45, W1, W3, W5, W7 - available HERE from DTDF.

Due to the abundance of spots on this cards, I'm going to enter it in to this weeks Simon Says Stamp challenge. I also nearly forgot, but I followed the sketch over at the Sweet Stampin' Challenge blog.

I'm off to visit the 'rentals on the Isle of Wight for a few days so I might not be able to visit you for a short while. I look forward to catching up when I get back :o)

Cute card. Love the papers and the sentiment. I too am heavy handed when coloring and I am sure if I colored this image her dress would be solid. :)
