I tidied the desk of all the Christmas workings and put them neatly away. OH came in, looked round and asked me if we'd been burgled.........................

So after having neatness for a whole hour and a half I then got bored and out came a pile of paper and stamped images.

This image was one I did using Maureens stamps (as if I haven't got enough of my own......) - don't you find that other crafters always have fab stuff that you don't???? LOL Anyway, the poor image has been here since September so thought I'd better use it!
There was a colour challenge over at the Play Date Cafe of Black, White and a 'splash' of Yellow. Don't know whether this could be considered more than a splash but never mind! I think the stamp and sentiment is from a set called 'Elegant Ladies' and I love it. I opted not to colour the dress but just dotted the polka dots with a dark grey promarker and coloured her shoes, ribbon belt and hat band in yellow. I made an attempt at highlighting the egde of the image ( a first for me) and I am quite pleased with it as I think it gives it a little bit of 'depth'.

The spotty paper is by DCWV and the polka dot ribbon was the last yellow and white piece I had left- wasn't enough to tie a bow with either - hence the 'blingy' buckle.
