Hi Guys,

I love Saturated Canary digi stamps, if you haven't heard of them, you need to check them out HERE .  So, as i check Krista's blog out daily (Krista is the artist & owner of S.C) i noticed that on the challenge blog there was a shout out for Guest Designers for the i thought, well, i'm a designer, maybe i could have a go, i maybe lucky and i maybe not, but i won't know unless i have a go, so here is my entry, i hope you like it, please leave me a comment if you have time so i know you've visited me, and i promise to answer your comment,
Hugs & Blessings, Vick xx

Isn't she beautiful? I could have overloaded her with embellies and flowers, however, i think she is pretty as she is, so i only added enough to compliment her beauty. Her name is 'Whispy'  I have shown you the full card, and then a close up of her, with her glittery wings!

Ingredients i used for this card

Natural Lace & flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts,
small carnation looking flower handmade by me

Ivory Pearls from Melissa Frances

  4. Aww thanks Joan, I hope i do too.

Thanks for visiting me sweet, it means a lot xxxxHugs, Vick

  5. Hi There Mags,

  12. Aww she's lovely Vick. I have to give you extra points or bravery. LOL This was my first SC purchase and I've yet to color her because her hair intimidates me so much. :-) I love the blue and brown color combination--one of my faves. Thank you so much for your very sweet comments on my blog. I just tried out on a whim. There are so many amazing colorers out there but it was fun to try out anyway. Guess everything's in the hands of Krista and the DT now. I wish you the best of luck!

  13. Hi Marc, thankyou sweetie, its to be a GUEST designer for 3mths i do hope you're right, i'd love to be on the team, thanks again hun xxx Vick

  14. Oh Hi Sue, bless you, yeah it feels good to be back! I love saturated canary digi's so being on the team for a couple of months sounds great, thanks for your kind comment, and visiting me, it makes it all worthwhile when i see people leave comments xxx Hugs

  15. Oh Tracy hun, you really do under-estimate yourself! I know you'd be able to cope with 'Whispy' your colouring is awesome, and guess what, she was in my first order from Krista too, i think i bought 3 at first, and whispy was one of them! I guess it is up to Krista and the DT now, would be great if we both got on, thanks for stopping by hun, hugs Vick xxx

  16. Wonderful Image and your colouring is second to none.....How on earth do you do her hair it's fab! XXXXX

  17. Arrr thanks for that Bern,

    I did it the same way i did the little boys hair on one of my tutorial videos with Promarkers, started off with vanilla, then added some tan, cinnamon, and then went in to emphasise the curls etc with some pencils, thats it basically!! im so pleased you've come to have a look, hugs to you hun, and thankyou xxxx Vick

  18. Gorgeous card, Vick! The colouring is superb. How could they not have you on the team?! In fact I am very tempted to buy this image and I've never bought a digi image in my life but you have (as usual) inspired me! xx

  19. Hi Sharon honey!

    Oh so nice of you to leave me a comment and a lovely one at that!! Well if you do decide to buy your first digi stamp you've made a great choice she is lovely to sit and colour, i love these images. Bless you sweet, much love, Vick xxxx
