Back in my comfort zone

Wow how cold is it this morning, sorry to the people who've had masses of it and have been snowed in but would much rather have snow than ice, the pavements were horrible yesterday. But my Dad has been out in the garden taking pictures (see below the card) and I have to say looking at them inside in the warm they do look pretty lol.

Yay back in the pink, and rather a lot of pink for this one lol. I found this gingham paper yesterday while I was looking for something else and it instantly reminded me of pyjamas (not entirely sure cos I don't think I've ever had gingham pjs in my life but never mind) am glad it did, I'd stamped and coloured this Robyn image up pretty much as soon as it was out of the envelope, then realised I didn't know what I was going to do with it. So when I found the gingham paper it all sort of came together. The sketch was from The Spotted Chick (yay love sketches make the cards so much quicker lol) and I inked the edges of all the paper and card to make it stand out a bit more.


And a close-up, the flock looks a bit of a mess on the picture but looks much better in real-life lol. And just realised I've forgotten to add a gem as Robyn's PJ button - off to fix that now lol... 


Supplies: 'Teddy Bear Robyn' and Sentiment Stamps by Ladybug Crafts Ink, Card by Doodlebug, Paper by Craft Creations, Sugar-Coating by Doodlebug, Flock by Doodlebug, Epoxy Dots by Ladybug Crafts Ink

I love the frozen water droplets on some of the berries on this one
