Flying the flag

I think my colouring of this cute image is improving with practise.......though I haven't decided which colour I prefer her hair yet!!
And I need to try and change my 'spell check' to UK English......because it's amazing how many different spellings we have to American English........I'm used to it telling me I've mis-spelt 'colour'......but it doesn't like 'spelt' or 'practise' either......and both are correct in the UK!!
Once again my plan to keep this flat to save on postal charges was scuppered........this time by the flower I couldn't resist adding.....it just seemed perfect for this card.Though I do think she's 'cute,cute,cute' for Papertake Weekly.
I'm off to Brighton tomorrow with 3 friends......to the Creative Stitches and Hobbycrafts Exhibition at The Brighton Centre.......it tends to be one of the smaller exhibitions.......so we may well have time to wander round some of Brighton's vast array of shops........as well as treating ourselves to lunch.......am looking forward to a fun day.

the flower was a perfect addition! But at that point you may as well have layered it all in your usual style!

I think she has a look of Ginger Spice about her! It must be the union jack flag.

I was thinking exactly what Karen said before I had even seen her comment!

Spell check is a pain at times!

Smashing card - loving the layers, colours and colouring.

Know what you mean about the U.S./U.K. spelling malarkey!

Have a brilliant time, seems like the sun will be shining for you today so have a great time wandering around Brighton. A bit of sunny retail therapy is very good for you! Lovely card and the flower is absolutely perfect.

I was really tempted to go to the show, not sure why I talked myself out of it! She really is a great image

She's beautiful Jacky! I know what you mean about the postal charges, the last time I sent out a wad of cards with buttons and boy it was expensive :)

She's very appealingly created! Hoping Brighton was a good day out?
