Uptown Girls

Remember the Billy Joel song, Uptown Girl, it was in the charts in the late eighties - just as I started dating my hubby.  It was forever playing on juke boxes and in night clubs, then it was taken back into the charts more recently by Westlife.

Anyway, I'm drifting off topic! Back to my card & my fantastic new Stamping Bella stamp from my lovely friend Laurie.

It's such a great stamp and one I'm sure I'll use loads as it's great for girls and perfect for 18th's!

So the paper is Doodlebug, the dresses paper pieced, the glasses glazed and the colouring by Promarker.

Sketch Saturday  - Nice easy one this week
Pin-siprational Challenge - Purple No 47
2 Sisters - Pastels
Totally Papercraft - Punch It - MS Doily Punch

FINALLY - Just got to tell you all about the film we watched last night. Hope Springs with Meryl Streep & Tommy Lee-Jones.  Absolutely brilliant chick flick.  Funny, sad, moving, just a delightful watch, so if you need a feel good film, this is where you should put your money.  Enjoy your evening, Jx

12th March
This has been a good week for me, hadn't won anything in ages or made any Top 3's, then THREE in the same week.  Today it's Top 3 at Pin-spirational Challenge. Thanks ladies, Jx

Just lovely - it would be perfect for the "girly" challenge on the pan pastels blog too (you don't have to have used PP's but you DO get the chance to win some)

Good luck with your challenges

Well would you just look here!! I'm amazed you made something with this already!! I have to have stamps for at least a year before they fight their way to the top of my pile lol!

A beautiful card Janice, love the paper piecing and I'm so happy you liked the stamp! I ADORE the uptown girls range (they are my latest addiction!) Love the song too but I went to the cinema to see Hope Springs last year and was disappointed!

As I'm in a rush I'll tell you how pretty I think your card above is from here! (so lazy or what? me I mean) The doily looks fab as a frame for that cute image - another winner

Hugs Laurie xx
