Lovely Design dollies

A quick post to say happy valentines +1 day!
In honour of this slightly commercial event (ok so I don't buy into the whole valentines thing, not a romantic I guess..), the Dollies are having a love theme to their elements challenge this week. I am embarrassed to say when I went looking for a nice shot of Geoff and I together, well I failed. A bit of a wake up call to get the kids to take some photos of us as a couple, soon I think...

So I whipped up an ATC. This was fun actually, lots of ink and rubons. A bit dark romance, love deep red and black together. The other dollies did some wonderful things as well. So come and play!!

A quick one for Sketchy Thursday as well. Here's the sketch
And here is my Lo

more messy ink work - yay! These were some photos taken when we were down visiting Geoff's Mum and we went for a walk around the harbour. Henry loves clambering over the rocks, a good way to spend the afternoon esp. as it was a bit too cold to swim.

Oh and go check out the talented Southern Girls challenge for this fortnight - use brown and blue in your colour scheme. Nice prizes to be had for a couple of lucky people.

Now as I finally have the house to myself (for an hour anyway.) off to make more mess xx

and Oh number 2, go listen to this interview on our local radio. It is Kaffe Fasset talking about how colour inspires him in all his artistic endeavours, and a bit about his life. I was completely hooked on this interview, if you need any inspiration, grab a coffee and have a listen!!!!
