No one can EVER fill your shoes

Hi everyone!  well, at least the sun is out here in East Sussex, but it's still sooooo cold!  I hope the weather is good wherever you are!

I'm here today with my Bellarific Babe card using Mo Manning's Big Shoes for Stamping Bella...



Another adorable image by Maurie!  I've been practicing my pencil colouring skills again with some coaching from Sally who has helped me colour less heavily handed - I think I'm getting better!  I gotta stop reaching for those darker colours still and try with the pastels only.  I used Mari Koegelenberg digi papers called Sunny Daze and my Lil Inker Designs Stitched Square mat die for some added interest.

Right, I am off to enjoy the sun!  In my thick waxed coat of course...

We had morning rain followed by glorious sunshine, so I don't think it could get any better. lol... I love the smell after a spring rain. Have a great day my friend. Hugs, Lisa G
