Blond or Brunette?

 We love making you think out of the box at

and this challenge is no exception. We would LOVE to know whether you favour
 blonde or brunette? 

I have never been overly confident with colouring hair and gave up trying to get any realistic effect a long time ago.

I am brunette through and through, well at least, I used to be!! I had gloriously dark glossy hair until I was about 35 when the grey/white started to appear. I coloured it until I was 50 and have let Mother Nature do her "thing" ever since. I am now blessed with a rather nicely even salt and pepper crown. 

My lovely little (antique c2012!!) Whimsy rubber stamp was coloured with Promarkers and her hair has a touch of pencil too for definition. Such pretty patterned papers called for a simple design and just a few pretties to finish off.

Thank you for your good wishes following my fall. My bottom is s..l..o..w..l..y recovering and thankfully my wonderful Hubby and a friend are keeping Wills ticking over for me. I don't think I am going to be back in the saddle just yet. The whole episode has made me realise that I am getting old!!

Thank you for your visit and I hope you will share your marvellous hair colouring with the Team.

Bye for now xx

Super card Sarah, I agree with those lovely DPs nothing else is required. Glad to hear you are on the mend, getting old as my friend said on Tuesday is ***t.
I'm with you on the hair colouring but I have to side with the blondes! Even though my hairdresser is a colour specialist she always remarks that ladies of a certain age should just let be! So from bright blonde I'm now what they might call ash!! :)

I really do feel for you after the fall Sarah, going back a few years I had a couple in quick succession, when the doctor at A&E greeted me with "hello again" the second word made me think long and hard. But I still enjoy the close bond with our boys even though I couldn't even get into the saddle now, let alone stay upright.

Loving the look of todays card.

I pleased to hear that you are on the mend, I'm sure you will soon get your confidence back.
For some strange reason blogger is putting your comments straight into my spam folder, along with quite a few others!

I think you've done a great job with colouring the hair Sarah. I'm blonde with quite a lot of natural white highlights now. I still colour mine but the white shows through very quickly. I'll be happy enough when it's all white, I just don't like having lots of different shades in it. Take care and stay happy x

Lena said...

A real sweetie. Love the card design and the pretty papers you used to showcase her. Beautifully done, Sarah!
Have a great day.

Aww, I love this older Whimsy image, Elisabeth Bell is still a favourite artist of mine. Beautiful card design and gorgeous paper combo. LOVE this hun. Cute reading your journey from Glorious Brunette to Stylish Salt & Pepper. I'm trying to work out whether to keep colouring my hair at the moment or let it grey naturally. I'm torn! Hugs, Wends xoxo
