A New Look Blog Layout And Update

Hi crafty friends, long time no postie lol!

Firstly I have given the blog a new look, links to other blogs, fave site, challenge sites archived posts and labels etc. Are now in a pop out menu on the right side of the page, you can also change the look of the blog by clicking on the links above.  I'm loving this new dynamic layout.  Please feel free to tell me if you like it or if you prefer the old style layouts.

On to the fun stuff, yes I know I have been very lax again in posting updates, I'm a busy girl, what can I say lol!

Actually all work and no play can make for a very grumpy girl.  I've been busy with family and work stuff for the last few months and not had a lot of time to craft.  I do have some stuff but I'm only going to post the most recent for now :)

Ladybug Lolita

I spent the entire day colouring this yesterday, very please with the results, I'm loving the Promarker fine tip nibs, you can really add texture and detail.  The digi stamp is from All That Scraps and is printed on to Rymans card stock.  finished off the image by blending a little SU Pool Party ink around the edges, a little stickles on the wings and as my glossy accents nip is now a stump and no good for detail, I decided to use my nail art fine liner to colour the tiny ladybird lol!
