Bella and her bunch of balloons


Hello crafters, what a blooming yukky day it's been in Dorset, cold, drizzly and downright depressing BUT (every cloud and all that!!) it did mean a little crafty time after the weekly shop and this is the result.


Bella and her  Bunch of balloons



She is coloured with Promarkers and the matching papers and Sprinkles are Doodlebug.
The sentiment was one from a brilliant set that was a Christmas present from a 
special blogging bud :0)


I couldn't get a decent picture and had to resort to getting on all fours on the mat by the french windows which prompted " Mum...what the hell are your doing?" oh, the things we do for our craft!! 
Anyway if you click on the picture you may just about see the wink of stella on the balloons. The ribbon came from Crafty Ribbons in one of their fab Jam Pot coloured packs.
I am off to make some Easter Biscuits and to try a Maple Carrot Cake recipe that I found here, I'll let you know how it turns out. 

Before I do I am linking up at these challenges

Love the shape of this sweet card, and the tiny Ellie is just adorable with her sparkly balloons (the WoS did show nicely too). I like the way you've done the focal image and all that lovely paper too. Wish I could share some of our gorgeous sunshine with you. I just watched Ep 3 of Arthur & George on Youtube - I liked MC's Scots accents, altho I've read that some viewers were critical of it. Can't wait until the dvds are available, as our PBS stations will be slow to air it. Excited to read the new season of Doc has started, and I'm reading some good DM fan fiction stories. Being such an addict, I have to have a daily share of the Doc! Happy Easter, and your cake sounds yummy, yummy. TFS the link to the recipe. Big Hugs & TFS
