Oh wow Bloggettes what high drama there's been here!

I was only abducted by Aliens.... AGAIN!!! I mean how unlucky am I eh? Abducted twice.... I do have to say though that the trip round Saturn and the outer moons of Pluto was actually quite interesting. Its true you can see the Great Wall of China but not you've made a sharp right as you go past the moon. After that it just goes blurry. Aliens aren't little green men either. they're quite tall and a pinky colour with orange ears.... Hmmm is that a hint of disbelief from the back? Erm.... how about I've been baking for England then? Well not England exactly but just heaps of cakes and tons for Bakewell Show - hey they all sold too! Yup its just been wall to wall cakes here folks and and a spot of golf fitted round it too. I've been a teensy weensy bit busy. To top it all my Mojo cleared off too.

Anyway now the baking's eased off a touch Mojo has reappeared!

This card is for our current challenge over at Totally Gorjuss which is a simple sketch, heck I drew it and I only do simple!

I used one of the new digis available at Whoopsi-Daisy a bargain at £1.99 for 4, yes 4! Anyway this little sweetie has been Copic'd and the edge of her coat and hat trimmed with Picket fence Distress Stickles. This is a subtle shimmer and not as sparkly as the other Stickles. I'm a bit on the picket fence about whether I like it or not....;)) I know I'm not keen on the Rock Candy one - it doesn't appear to do anything! Neither sparkles nor shimmers to my mind. Anyway the papers are some old Basic Grey, the Dasher (spotty) is still one of my favourites.

Oh the arty close up! I've used the Stickles on the edge of the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers too. The punch is by X Cut

Do you like the nice shadow effect on her too? I'm not sure whether its my head or my hands!

Anyway have fun Bloggettes and if you see that St Swithin chap make sure he scarpers quick sticks - I'm sick of the rain! bring back the sun!

Hopefully I'll not be abducted again....
