A Bit 'o Green at LLLC

Hey everyone - sorry it's been so quiet over here lately. So much for a blog post a day, huh? My little number next to the month gets smaller with each passing day - gets me down that does. I'll have to work on it! :)

Anywho - top and bottom of it is, I positively repel technology. Still haven't been to sort out my laptop battery, so it's always a bit hit and miss whether my laptop actually turns on or not. If it's not my laptop it's my camera. It it's not my camera it's my phone. Gawwwd!! Wish it would all just sort it's self out.

You may have noticed I've missed two LLLC posts in a row - due to technical difficulties! HA! But this week - I'm IN!! Plus, you'll be pleased to know I'll be getting the next two or three scheduled too. Result, huh. It's amazing the work you can get done when you have no access to FB!

This Friday over at LLLC we have some inspiration for ya in the form of..


Just in time for St. Patricks Day tomorrow! :)

This is cutie Cowgirl Marci and I've coloured her entirely with ProMarkers. Don't ask me how a cowgirls and good luck come together - but hell, they do on this card, and I kinda like it! I've stamped 'good luck' and the little clover from a SU! stamp set in Old Olive ink and added some splodges from Stempelglede in Rich Cocoa Memento ink to the white patterned paper.

Skin - Blush, Soft Peach, Rose Peach, Baby Pink, Sorbet
Eyes - Dove Grey, April Shower
Hair - Ivory, Buttercup, Vanilla, Mustard
Browns - Tan, Nutmeg, Cinnamon
Jacket - Primrose, Soft Lime, Lemon
Greens - Lime Zest, Lime Green, Pear Green
Rope - Aniseed, Mustard

I've used some yummy papers from Basic Grey Origins collection. I've been hoarding it forever, but it was perfect for this challenge! I've added a lovely cream crochet flower which I have wound with green bakers twine and attached a little button. A few WOC flowers and pearl brads finish this off nicely! :)
