{Dutch Dare & CCT Challenges}
This week's challenge over at Dutch Dare is a gorgeous sketch by the talented Cathy. Of course I could not wait to ink up my latest winnings and here it is. It stamps beautifully and also gave me another chance to get my H2O's out of the drawer once again.
It definitely was a morning of over eagerness. After a session at the gym this morning, I even had the urge to carry the theme on the front of the card through to the inside. Yes Bev, this is especially rubbing off from your side. Always staring in amazement at how beautifully you finish of the insides of your creations, I could not but help myself.
The challenge over at CCT for this week is 'Signs of Spring' and I do think that this fits the bill perfectly.
At Heidi's recent baby shower, Alisha kept on prompting me to take some photos of her, and of course this keen bambino photographer could not refuse. Once again Alisha was a real cute poser, but after every pose she wanted to see how she looked on the digital camera's screen. Yes, so her keenness to be photographed, was not really because she likes to pose, but only to see herself on the camera ... definitely another addict to instant gratification. I am sure you will agree, she is a real photogenic beauty!
Thanks for taking some time out, to pop in here, once again and also for all your lovely comments. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
