That's a lot of hair

Hello lovely people,

A big thank you for the lovely comments on my last blog post and it's nice to know people are interested in what I'm up to!

A few people commented on how tidy my crafting space was, so let me tell you that it only looks like that when I have just finished a project and tidied everything away ready to start the next one.  When work is in progress the desk is barely visible because I like to surround myself with all the bits and pieces I might use!

Today I do have a card to share with you, and it's a 'just for fun' card because I really wanted to use this fab image and yes, it's *those* papers again...I love these so much!

I thought I'd do a bit of hair colouring practice...ha ha, I'm not one to go for the easy option...
...several hours later I was pretty chuffed with the results :-)

Even if I did accidentally colour bits that weren't actually hair on the left hand side - ooops!  It looks ok, so I'm not too worried.

I didn't feel like 3D flowers would really work on this design so I had a dig around in my box of dies and found these cute cloud dies which I hadn't used yet, and then the word die which just looked so sweet layered on top - ahhhh, so nice when it all comes together :-)
