One For The Girls

A big sunshine-y hello from me!

Yes, despite it being the countdown to Winter and the start of some very cold (by my standards) weather, this weekend Sydney has turned on the sunshine and it's a lovely Autumn Day. I am always happiest when I can see blue sky, so my plans for the day are to get out there and enjoy it.

But not before I tell you that it's time for a new challenge at The Squirrel and The Fox. This time our theme is


We are excited to welcome a new sponsor for this challenge - Tickled Pink Stamps. TPS are offering our lucky winner two digi stamps from their Lil Lolita, Lil Lad or Lil Pinkette ranges. You simply must check them out - you would be hard pressed to choose!

For my DT piece I was lucky enough to use the digi image Lil Pinkette Easter August. She's the cutest little girl, so dainty and sweet.

My colours were inspired by the current challenge at Card Makin' Mamas - pink, orange, blue and greens. The papers are from My Mind's Eye and my image is coloured with copics. Here's a close up of my Lil Pinkette.

The glittery silver mesh ribbon, bling and cardstock are from my stash. I debated long and hard about adding something more - some flowers, buttons etc, but in the end I settled on leaving this card somewhat simple to show off that gorgeous paper.

I hope you'll join us for our challenge.

I am also entering this little card into the following challenges:

Card Makin' Mamas - picture inspiration
Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes
Southern Girls - Get Your Girly On
Shopping Our Stash - Mother's Day or Anything Girly
