Glamour Girl

 This is my third post for today.

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to win 2 Kraftin' Kimmie stamps on the Cute Card Thursday challenge. They arrived yesterday and I just had to ink them up and use one today. Isn't she fabulous. Although I like using decoupage and die cuts nothing beats stamping and colouring with my Promarkers. I was so happy spending time colouring her in. I decided to try auburn hair for a change and am pretty pleased with the result. I used a Sakura goldstar pen for the spots on her dress. The star circle is a Marianne die, papers are Prima Fairy Flora and flowers are all from Crafty Emma's Store. I found the puffy gold bow in my stash which just finished off the sparkle nicely.

Challenges:
Crafts and Me Stamp Something
Truly Scrumptious Summer Sparkle
Aud Sentiments Summer
Crafty Sentiments Add some sparkle
Kraftin' Kimmie Add some gold
Paper Sundaes Girly girl
CES Inspired by a Movie (A Star is Born)
Sketch N Stash Great sketch


Some of you have asked for pics of my new craft room. As you can see it is progressing with hubby painting the ceiling for me. He painted the wall white but before he did so decided to write on it. I've ordered a chair, 2 desks and a blind and the electrician is coming next Tuesday to put in some new lights so I hope to be moved in by the end of the month.
