Hi there everyone - this is my card for the TTPH challenge and there is news!!!  Our challenges have moved from weekly to monthly - giving you lots more time to get your entries in!  We have two sponsors this month but my digi is from Eiglassing hand drawn digis.  This is 'Been Shopping Lola?' - not like me at all!

I thought she needed to be bright and springlike and found this paper in my stash - lurvely.  Everything was going well until I used a slightly leaky Promarker and I made a delightful splodge on the TOTALLY finished image just beside her hair.  Many many years ago this would have caused a panic and a total restart - but these days I have the answer!   I just find my really small flower dies and then I pop a few die cuts on the pic itself and add a few larger ones to the bottom border.  Splodge now gone!   

As for the lace - my friend Sue J (Olliesmam) told me about a place on Facebook (I know I'm not an FB fan but I am getting used to it more because of my DT work) where you can buy metres of lace, bags of buttons, ribbons, pearls etc and the laces are really striking!!  This place is called Brenda's Lace and Ribbon Specials, you have to join to be able to buy, however you will become addicted - that's a promise!

Thank you for popping by my blog and for leaving me some lovely comments on my cards.  Take care and have a great Easter weekend.  As I'm sitting here typing there is a Robin in the tree down the garden and he is singing his little heart out - it is a really fiddly tune - if you know what I mean - he's up and down the scale like a  ...... no I won't say what I was thinking ...... suffice it to say, he is extremely talented.

Ta ta for now then peeps.

Hugs to you all
