Cheers CAS card (Milk Coffee image)

Hi Crafty friends,

It is absolutely boiling hot here in Melbourne, Australia today! I know some of you might be thinking you'd give anything to swap to warmth as it's so cold in other countries right now but seriously, this is urghhhh hot hehe!! We have school starting back this week so it's not even like we can avoid going outside as there's so much to organise.

Anyway, enough whinging haha, I used a beautiful new image from Milk Coffee to create this card. She is so adorable I didn't want to flounce the card up too much so I went with a more clean and simple look. After I coloured her with copics I went crazy with my white ink pen to give her polka dots on her dress, I think it looks sweet, hope you do too.

  10. Oh so beautiful and such an elegant card Lucy ......oh to have such a beautiful dress hanging in my wardrobe.....I'd really party with confidence.

    I was so interested reading about the extreme heat that you are experiencing 'down under' .... as I become a very evil person when temperatures rise above 22 degrees C ...you have my sympathy. We are seeing and hearing about the extreme weather you are having here in the UK ....record breaking.

  26. It seems so funny to hear you talking about how hot it is when it's been -29 here this week. Your fabulous colouring really brings this beauty to life.
