The Pink Elephant

Oh Boy did I get soaked this afternoon - nipped to the shops and it started to pour - got soaked right through even to my knick knacks!!! LOL

My jeans soaked up all the water nearly to my knees it was torrential with snow thrown in for good measure!!! Bloomin' Spring??? Drown and Rats spring to mind!!!

Anyway came home and am in the crafting mood today so had a go at the lovely sketch over at The Pink Elephant. The image is Pink Petticoat - isn't she a cutey - coloured with wait for it!!! PRo Markers !!! What do you think - still getting used to them - the rest to be honest is just bits and bobs and cuts from my stash.

Ooh What a little diva. She is adorable. Love the boa around her neck.
So nice that you used the left over of the spellbinder and the bling bling. She really looks like a party girl. Your colouring looks great. Never did use promarkers.
Well, I noticed that you did send the rain my way LOL

Sorry to hear about your soaking Dawn. I got drenched taking Max out for his evening walk last night, luckily I had my hubbies waterproof over-trousers on so my legs stayed dry but I decided to wear trainers not wellies?! Big mistake! My feet were sodden by the time we got back. Ho hum that'll teach me eh?!

Beautiful card, she says getting back onto the topic, I love the litle girl image, she is so cute.

Hope you've dried out now!
