Where did this come from?




So ok... I was so taken with kirsty's inspirational picture for the new City Crafters Challenge "Venice, Beyond Gondola" ... (having never been to Venice I might add)... that my fingers began to play...
And before I knew it.. this little lady was born.....







There she is - all ready for the Mardi Gras....complete with bells. So it's just a bit of fun right? And I intend to hang her in my little craft room. She started life as a colouring page (face that is) but didn't have any eyes so I drew them and coloured them. I did a lot of paper piecing too but not sure if she just looks like spider woman now?? Lol!



I have actually been to Italy - fulfilled a childhood dream some years ago... I remembered watching Katherine Hepburn "Summertime" with my Mum many years ago when I was an impressionable young girl.. I fell instantly in love with Italy..... 

Of course when I went 4yrs ago, it was nothing like the picture in my head... But Amalfi, Positano, Ravello and Capri all exceeded my expectations and left me breathless. Maybe one day I will see Venice..



The Play Date Cafe also have a new challenge - a "Colour Splash" challenge with the most beautiful picture......



You really need to see the gorgeous creations from the DT. I was going to enter this little lady ...Quirky though she is... But I didn't think that the music sheet would count...
So here is my entry for Play Date Cafe




See? nearly the same colours... well I used the same papers for the background- just printed my lion onto different DP. Another of Meljen's Design digital stamps... He's a cutie isn't he?

That's all for now ........

Till soon
