Painter Shy and a little bit of news!!

Hello bloggers a little later than usual today to share my DT inspiration card for



This is Painter Shy


I knew he would look amazing with bright primary colours so dug out a Doodlebug Designs pad and coordinating enamel dots. Black mats were the perfect addition. He was coloured with Promarkers.

Some challenges

Lemon Shortbread #33 - Anything Goes
Digi Choosday Week #3 - Anything Goes
Ooh la la #220 - For a man or boy

Now then, while I am here I had better share my news...we have been upgraded to GRANDPARENTS and my secret wish (for a baby Grand Daughter) came true!!

She arrived safely on Sunday evening and is absolutely gorgeous although names are still proving difficult for Mummy and Daddy to choose!! Mollie Rose is the favourite at the moment!!


Thank you for stopping by xx
