The lovely ballerina


Today was one of those days...I had a doctor's appointment..it's so rare to be able to get an appointment I could have sold it on ebay! It certainly wasn't either the doctor's fault nor the receptionist, just too many people between two few doctors. Anyway, I wanted to go to the bank and to the library whilst I was in town and what with Colin retiring today I was in a bit of a tizz. It was an early appointment so I was dashing around a bit but managed to leave home with enough time to get to the doc's. Afterwards I parked up in town and went to the bank and the library and suddenly thought (as you do...) something isn't right. I looked down, no, I wasn't wearing my slippers, I was fully dressed, I had my handbag...then it hit me! I had a shiny scrubbed face!!!ARGH!!! No Make-up!! Not since the 70's have I braved the outdoors (the garden doesn't count)  without 'a face on' Oh boy! I hadn't even checked if the hair dye was still around my face from being re-purpled at the hairdressers yesterday. Luckily I only realised on the way back to the car, and when I got home I thought it would be better if I didn't know what a state I might look. I may check the mirror later under subdued lighting. So, tomorrow is the first day of Colin's retirement and I think he is a bit worried about being home more, he went a funny colour when I suggested he dried the dishes as he passed through the kitchen and maybe he could pair the socks. I think he may be looking for a part-time job.
Anyway, back to today's card. This is one of my favourite digi's from The Paper Shelter. She is so easy to colour and I do think my shading is getting better, I know I have a long way to go yet but there has been some improvement! She has been printed onto watercolour paper coloured with promarkers...there is a link on my sidebar. Layered onto mirriboard and then onto Henbury Lane papers (I think) Swirls from my cricut and flowers from wild orchid crafts. I hope you have a very good weekend, I'm off to join in the docrafts bloghop, I hope to see you there.
