Ragdoll Ruby

Don't can enter my little candy here!
Good morning lovely bloggers......hope you had a fabulous weekend!
Bet all you Downton Abbey fans are happy it's back......I'm a late-comer
to Downton......just finished the end of Season 2.......and I'm hooked!
I love it......especially Violet lol! Anyway, I did manage a little crafty time 
over the weekend & made a little tent picture for Miss Rebecca!
I used an image from Dilly Beans called Ragdoll Ruby......she's got
to be my fav.......and the colours are too, although I chose them cos they
 go with Rebecca's room. I wanted a real grungy, almost dirty feel to
this & am quite pleased with it. Everything is ripped, torn, inked, doodled
and glittered.....even the ribbon....can't remember where it's from but it's 
amazing can do what you like to it & it still looks great!
Rightio, that's me for today.....didn't manage to find any wallpaper last
week so guess what I'm doing today....yep, off to another shop!
Thanks for calling today.....hope you have a lovely day!

    As an adult she now has a very classical look, but still wears a lot of black!

    This will look great in her new room!

  13. Hi Jo

    Just popping by to say thanks for the lovely message on my blog about me not blogging and hoping I was ok. Unfortunately life has taken a shocking turn for me and the kids and hubby has moved out without giving a reason. So me and the kids are still in shock and struggling along trying to be there for each other. I have packed all of my craft items away as I just cant concentrate but hopefully one day soon I will feel up to it. Hope all is well with you and the kids. love the card by the way xxxx

  14. Oooh this is fab Jo!! what a wonderful image - she's quirky and so sweet! I love the gorgeous dark colours and the embellies are wonderful… the hearts and butterflies are perfect!! :-)

    Take Care
    Big hugs
    Sue xx
