Welcome to my blog on this sunny morning . Hope you all have been having some of this fabulous weather .
Today im sharing 2 makes made this morning featuring 2 of Sherri Baldy's new Digi's ..
My first is such a pretty lady head and shoulders Digi .

I have used pro markers to colour my image and have used soft peach and vanilla for my main colours . For her earrings and necklace i have used liquid pearls .

The Ribbon and bow i have finished off using one of the roses as a centre feature . A few gems and pearls always add that special something .

My 2nd card is another pretty girl from Sherri Baldy . I have made this into a mini scene using all products from Creata . Apart from 2 little heart buttons .

I have created a scene for this little girl to sit in it just feels so summery to me .

 I have used the fabulous Creata Kraft card which can be sanded as i have to reveal a white inner core .. I have distressed all the edges of my papers to give them texture . All dies used can be found on the Creata website .

I would like to enter the 2nd card in the anything goes callenge at
