Oooooh so excited!!!  As you might have noticed, I'm completely addicted to all things Digistamp Boutique, and recently I had a few lovely months as Guest Designer.  Last night I had the most exciting email ever - Sally-Ann asked me if I'd like to come back and join her main DT!  Oh, I thought about it for about 2 seconds and then of course said YES :o)  Thank you Sally-Ann, you've made me very happy!

Now I've had one of THOSE days today - Dex has got an upset tummy (potty training and the runs are a lovely combination!) but in between cleaning up and cuddling I've managed to make a card.  I've used one of this month's fab offer images - this is Oscar and he's available on his own or in a set here.  He's coloured with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  The papers are digi ones from Summertime Designs, printed onto linen cardstock, with purple coredinations.  Digi sentiment from Paper Makeup Stamps, pearls from stash.

It's not my best - I'm going through one of my 'can't follow a sketch to save my life' stages, so I tried but gave up on the sketches and kept it simple.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Off to parent's evening in a bit, that should be fun - especially seen as Morgan managed to get a detention today for talking too much!  Will be round to see all your blogs when I get back :o)
