Sweet Stampin' DT - Balls!... and my new hair

Hello everyone... Ooh I'm very late today!  Forgot all about blogging this earlier and then we decided to pop to the park, and we needed a few bits from the shop too... Got here eventually though!

Our challenge at Sweet Stampin' for this week is 'Balls'... footballs, snowballs, any balls at all!  We're sponsored by My Mum's Craft Shop, Saturated Canary, and our monthly sponsor is The Ribbon Girl :o)

I've used one of the gorgeous Lil Dumplings images from Pollycraft for my card...

Items Used
Scalloped card blank - Craftwork Cards
Digi stamp - Lil Dumplings Shelby - Pollycraft
Colouring - copics
Papers - Echo Park Sweet Girl - MCH
Sentiment stamp - Magnolia
NEW Memory Box Serene Scallop die - MCH
Corner rounder punch
Twine & buttons from my stash

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Papertake Weekly - die-ing for a punch
Cute Card Thursday - beside the seaside

I don't often post pics of myself on here (or anywhere!), I really don't like having my photo taken... but I was brave this morning and had my hair cut short - it was in a bob before... So I thought I'd be even braver and show photos too!

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Love your card Lisa! Very sweet and yet cheerful, totally appropriate for the summer.

Your hair looks awesome.

Hey, guess what, today I got my two Sweet Elin stamps. I'm waiting for four Sugar Nellie stamps to arrive too. They are so lovely it was hard for me to decide which ones to order first. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction :)

Cheer from sunny and hot Venezuela!
