Happy Birthday Sweet Stampin'!

Sorry, I'm a bit late with my post... still in pain but I won't bore you all with it again!  Thanks to everyone who left me such lovely supportive messages - you're all fab and you're really helping me feel a 'bit' more confident about going to the dreaded dentists... I will make it there soon!

Today we're celebrating Sweet Stampin's 2nd birthday with a nice and easy 'happy birthday' challenge, and LOADS of fab prizes!  Please pop over to the blog for full details - we have prizes from Saturated Canary, Tiddly Inks, Crafty Sentiments, My Creative Classroom, Prairie Fairy and The Craft Room, and there are random prizes for commenters on some of the design team posts - so for extra chances at winning make sure you leave some comments on the DT blogs :o)






I've used a gorgeous image that was kindly provided by Krista at Saturated Canary, and I've coloured her with promarkers, flexmarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  I don't very often do blond hair as I find dark hair much easier, but this is not too bad compared to my usual attempts at blond!  The papers are First Edition, with coredinations cardstock.  The sentiment is from a little set of tag stamps, but I'm not sure what make they are, flowers were cut with an MFT die and the pearls are from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Off to take another dose of paracetamol so I can get some commenting done!
