Nice and Simple – Just Because

Zoe May 30, 2010 16

Unfortunately it turns out that I was kidding myself when I thought I had a cold. Six days in and I lost my voice and had to finally resort to cold & flu tablets so I could appear normal again! Mind over matter just didn’t work this time round. Cheeky little virus!

Fortunately my fingers still work and I had a quick play today once the meds kicked in and I could maneuver about without getting a headache. lol

I recently received my first Puddle Jumpers, designed by Lori Boyd. They are just tooo cute! I have used the Ella collection available from Claudia & Co Stamps at Die Cuts r Us.

I followed the ‘Skecth’ over at ‘A crafty little place‘,
the recipe of ‘designer paper, ribbon, bow and tag’  from Stamp Something,
Color combo of ‘Orange’ from The Pink Elephant
and some embellies of ‘Buttons and Butterflies’ from Pollycraft.

Here is a close up of Ella and her dolly.

I needed to practice a little on Ella’s cheeks. I haven’t coloured many images with open spaces. I added some liquid pearls to her pearl necklace and some stickles to her dress trimming and the dolly.

I am quite happy with the nice clean and simple look. Looks refreshing I think.

I think I might go curl up in bed and feel sorry for myself for a little while. That’s what Sundays are for right?  🙂

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, take care.
