What's a girl to do?!

What do you do if you've got a whole afternoon to yourself, you aren't going to work for 6 weeks and you don't want to go out for fear of being accused of having swine flu? Surf the internet for digistamps and do some colouring, that's what!
Yes, I spent more money at DigiStamp Boutique yesterday, but aren't these images sooo cute?
The cat is called Olive, and as I have so many friends who have cats, I know they will be very popular. Now for the next one. I have said before that I like to see little girls with all their features. I am not a fan of Smirk, Gorjuss or Tilda, but wanted a girl with eyes, nose and a mouth. Let me introduce Sophie, my next digistamp purchase from digistamp Boutique. She has all her features, cute stripey tights and some rather daring heels for her age! I coloured her with promarkers in Cool Aqua and pastel pink. I'm pleased with the hair and skin tone on this one too.
Finally, I stamped a messy rabbit and coloured that too. Background papers on all three are from Funky Fairy. The little flowers and the swirls are free downloads from their inspirations blog. The scribble swirls are from the cupcake crazy download in their shop. I didn't buy this one yesterday though. I 've had it a while, honest!

I should perhaps have gone for a different colour backing paper on this last one - a bit too much brown I think!
I was reaching for the tissues every few minutes yesterday, so I couldn't get too inky, but I could colour!

Hi Sally. I'm in full sympathy with you. I too have come down with a stinky cold and have stayed in doors for 3 days for exactly the same reason. Everyone looks so suspiciously at you if you even just blow your nose which, when you suffer from Hayfever, as I do is a daily occurrence.
We have one day left of school, fancy having to go in just for a Monday!!!! and then the holiday stetches away.
Your cards are lovely. When you can't go out it's great to be able to carry on craft shopping isn't it.
I hope you feel better soon.

Hi Sally

Found you via Barbara's website.

Your comment made smile and I just had to visit.

I thought I was the only person who struggles with images of cute people that have no mouth or nose!!!!

How lovely that I am not alone.

Your cards are lovely - you appeear to like the same type of images as I do.

Sorry you are not feeling too well. Hope you are "up and running" soon.

Love Jules xx

Hi Sally, thank you for you kind comments on my blog, I really appreciate them. I like what you're doing over here! Sorry you've been ill, hope you feel better soon. I have a daughter called Megan too, she will be 20 this year- makes me feel old! She's in my blog picture with me. Take care, Judith x

All too cute for words Sal! Glad you found a girl with a face. I don't like the faceless ones either.
