Hi ya, my goodness that is a beautiful image - you've really brought her to live. Love the colour scheme.

Sarah

PS. Can't help about the strange blog, don't know enough about blog land!

PPS. Best of luck with the dentist, every time I go they list the two impacted wisdoms I've got and I pray that they leave me alone!!! So far, so good. I'm sure you will be fine but I understand the panic. Sarah

Yikes on Mr. Dentist, but hey at least when it's over you'll be like brand new. All those pains will be totally gone.....

Donna said...

Hi Nic, Stamping Heaven used to be Alison Watsons old blog before she moved to a new one...presumably the blog name has now been chosen by someone new and as we were all following Alison previously it picks us up as following the new blog! It will be at the top of your blog roll list and if you click on manage blogs you can delete it, that's what I did yesterday! HTH :) Donna x

PS: Gorgeous card hun, your colouring is amazing :)

Donna Mosley said...

Hi Nic, this is another amazing make hun. Love, love, love the fab colours and details. Hope you all enjoyed the fireworks.
