All about hair

Hello lovely people,

What a lovely long weekend!
I had lots of fun walking in the sunshine, designing wedding stationary with a friend and making/eating what I consider to be the best pudding ever...behold the sticky toffee cheesecake...

I was going to do a spot of gardening yesterday morning but an enormous (2 inch thick!) bamboo pole fell on me, leaving a nasty gash under my eyebrow and requiring me to lie down with an ice pack for a bit :-(
Bamboo pole 1: Kat 0
Dr. Hubby was a star and planted out the many cannas all by himself!

Sadly, it's back to work for me today but of course it's time for a new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday and our theme this time is...


We have The East Wind as our lovely sponsor for this challenge and they are offering 3 images to the winner.

I've kept my card fairly CAS since the image is so beautiful and detailed.

I have wanted to colour up this gorgeous image for a while and this was the perfect opportunity since I had 2 lots of hair to colour!

Challenges I am entering;
1.  The Pink Elephant (anything goes)


  1. Ouch, hope you are ok. Gorgeous colouring, stunning colours. You have introduced me to Clearly Besotted dies after I saw your notebook edger. Couldn't believe the price of their dies and postage, so reasonable, bought that one and a wave edger. Thanks fir all your lovely comments xx

  2. Wow, Kat, this is stunning!!! LOVE the colour combo, and although the unicorn's mane and tail are fabulous, I am lost for enough words to describe the fairy's hair!!!!

    You are such a 'silly-billy' for letting that pole whack you like that (naughty pole), and I hope you are not left with a scar.

    Big hugs,
    Jennifer. x

  3. Morning Kat,

    Hope you are feeling better now, naughty pole!
