Anabel Lulu and Anything Goes DT

Hallo all! So I had a bit of a mixed day yesterday. Went on lovely long walk with hubbie and had BBQ in gorgeous sunshine. Then I found out I'd made it on the Anything Goes Challenge DT- how cool is that??! I thought as I've got a bit more time now that I'd make the most of it but challenging myself on a DT. Can't wait to start working with you all, girls!
But it took a turn for the worse and by 8pm I had a stonking migraine and had my head down the toilet throwing up!! And I didn't even get to eat any Easter egg!

Just a quick post as head is still sore!

So I coloured gorgeous Anabel Lulu with a mixture of watercolour and lyra pencils; shadows by copics and darkened her hair with a brush marker. Am so loving these Basic Grey papers- especially with all this gorgeous hot weather we're having. Also used plenty of zig-zag stitching!

I'd like to enter this into:
Bellarific Challenge- mother's day or for someone special
Stamptacular Sunday- pile it on- 5 layers or more
C.R.A.F.T.- use flowers

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Stamping Bella); Lyra pencils; Brush markers; Copics; Papers (Basic Grey); Sentiment (Pink Petticoat); Glamour dust; Sewing machine; Hot fix crystals

Have a wonderful week! xx

Hi Steph - Now this is wierd - This card RAELLY reminds me of another one of mine!!! - I too have a couple of these LULU's & you don't really see them that often?!! - Anyhow its not the same papers but they're in the same colours & are v. simelar. - I had to look twice thinking it was mine!!! - How strange?! - guess great minds really do think alike. haha. Love your blog & your style hun, so glad to be workin with ya,
