Girlie but no pink - Sweet Stampin' DT

Goooood morning all!

By the time you're reading this, I shall probably be getting ready for my monthly pilgrimage to the LOTV shop. I shall be worshipping at the altar of cuteness, and will refuse to come home without a new James or six two to accompany me... ;-)

In the meantime, I have for you all my DT card for this week's Sweet Stampin' challenge. The theme this week is Girlie but no pink. Now, I've been on a bit of a pink spree recently, but there's not a scrap of it to be found here!

The image I used is "A Special Gift", which I coloured with Promarkers, and I used one of the "Handwritten Phrases" for a sentiment. Isn't she sweet? I loved her shoes, which I decided had to be the black lacquer type ones that every little girl desperately wants (including me when I was that kind of age, and I've never been a shoe person! lol), so I covered them in glossy accents. The dress of course has been liberally attacked with stickles.
The gem dots I got from My Mum's Craft shop, and they're brilliant! I really want to get some more, but they're out of stock! *sob*
Now, silly me, I didn't do my blog post as soon as I'd finished the card, so I can't for the life of me remember where the papers are from! I'm tempted to say they were magazine freebies, but if you recognise them, holler!

Anyways, I know you all want to join in and have a chance at winning our weekly £10 voucher for The Ribbon Girl

And the monthly £10 from Cuddly Buddly!

So I'll let you go now to check out what the rest of the DT have been up to, and I look forward to seeing your entries!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sweet Pea Stampers - Anything goes
Delightful Challenges - Patterned paper
Crafty Girls Challenges - Anything goes
Sister act - Anything goes (#39)
Tando Creative - Bold and Bright

Have a fabby day, see you all when I get back from my favourite shop! :-)

Maybe no pink Sammy but still very girly and pretty.

Sorry no show all week, we were without phones and internet from Monday morning until PM yesterday, total nightmare.

Enjoy your craft outing and have a good weekend.
