SSW - Di's Digi Downloads

Today's Ramblings: Good morning! So remember that I was talking about my sewing machine? Well I used it to do some hemming on a pair of pants. Needless to say, I got one pant leg done and never want to do that again LOL!! I will save the sewing for cards, thank you very much! Though Derek keeps asking me when his pants will be done - uhm... never?

Hi Deanne, so glad you have your ramblings back I did miss them. I took up a pair of jeans for my son last Sunday night and broke two needles on my sewing machine because of the thickness of the material. Get Derek's trouses done and then he won't ask you again. Tell him to bring them over here and I'll finish it for him.LOL Just love your card this week great bright colours and I love her black hair I've never attempted black yet as I know it isn't easy I'll have to put it on my bucket list. Great card love it.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs
Kathie

P.S Tempatures winter here where we live. On a cold frosty morning
-1,-2 could be down as cold as 5 during the day. Down at the mountain where we ski as low as -9, -10 up the mountain depending on the chill and wind factor. In the South Island it's alot colder in the winter and hotter in the summer. I've noticed the announcer on T.V in Christchurch wearing a scarf around his neck out side, we are still in summer clothes where we are and the kids are still swimming. I've seen it get as low as -15 in the South Island one winter and they had burst water pipes. That would be a warm day for you....LOL
Take care
Kathie

Ahhh yes, she is sooooo cute! I love how you have her sitting on the circle frame! Clever inspiration! I will have to try it some time! I always love how you color your hair! Love those white highlights. And I noticed the jewels on her baby doll shoes! Perfect embellishment! Again I alway love the bright colors you use! Hope you are staying warm. I'm lobbying for Spring to arrive extra early! Oh, regarding your sewing...I also have my husband take his slacks elsewhere to have them hemmed! I took Tayloring in HS but have no interest anymore! It's ok to just enjoy your machine for the fun stuff!
Thanks for your sweet comment today. I had way too much fun this week...please check back to see the washing, unveiling and transfer!
Have a great week!

Everything about your card is so attractive. I love your bow, and how you've colored and highlighted the cute image's hair.

Wow Deanne this is fantastic - a great combination of papers and fun, bright colors that are your trademark. The coloring on this image is quite spectacular. I love how your ribbon repeats the harlequin theme of your papers. Terrific job!

Deanne, My husband says that to me also. I know have two machines for him to be afier me about heming his pants . But my husbands goes beyond that he also wants them patched and repaired until they can no longer be repaired. They look pertty sad at there last repair job. He a mechanic so he think he can keep on using them. I love your sweet card this week. You always have the brightest colors and I love that. Your hair is just done to prefection with those white highlights. Have a sweet week Arlana
