The Paper Nest Dolls Challenge #9!

Hello! How is everyone? Good I hope!

I had a pretty awful weekend as our water tank overflowed upstairs and came through my craft room ceiling and flooded one of the built in wardrobes and my craft desk!!! It managed to ruin a project and a pad of paper but thankfully that was it.  A minor miracle I have to say but the wardrobe full of clothes was a different story! What a mess.  But I am a 'glass-half-full' type of person so the washing machine worked overtime and we are 'almost' back to normal. Phew!!

Anyway, back to much more pleasant things and today launches our new monthly Anything Goes challenge over on THE PAPER NEST DOLLS CHALLENGE BLOG ! As always we have a fab prize to offer our winner so check out THE BLOG for all the details!

I used the oh-so pretty RIDING HOOD AVERY and my much used stepper die for my make this time.
I made an impulse buy (who me?!!) of a Papermania Capsule collection some time ago and it has this fab plaid paper in it which I thought would go very well with this image and her basket of goodies. There’s no sentiment on this one as I couldn't really find anything appropriate.  That could change though.
Can you spot the wolf lurking in the trees at the back?  Hmmmm! More silly than sinister methinks!! J

Dies/Punches: Tattered Lace ‘Centre Stepper Set’ - Tonic ‘Nesting Ovals’ – Spellbinders ‘Whimsical Tree’ – X-Cut flower mini palm punch
Card: Neenah Solar White - Papermania
Colouring/Ink:  Spectrum Noir markers and pencils
Others: Acrylic drops – ribbon – Tonic Crystal Drops
Hopeless hand drawing: ‘Wolf’ eyes

Ooooh what big crafty eyes you have!! So take them along with you to join in our Anything Goes Challenge on THE BLOG where you will also see some stunning inspiration from the DT. And don’t forget to visit THE SHOP for all of Christine’s adorable stamps and now there are digis available too HERE!!

Thanks so much for looking and for your lovely comments and have a wonderful day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
