Good Morning

With hubby away, I woke up early this morning and decided to take time off to do some crafting. With Hannelie's reminder of the Robyn's Fetish Cottage's sketch and with my stepdaughter's good results in her final exam it just became the beginning of this card. With my playing around in blogland I visited Shelly's image blog. She has a quite interesting challenge, called roll 'em, where she has a list of 10 options and using the true random generator 3 times you get the recipe for your card. Well, as I went through the list I was puzzled by nr.10 - doodling, since it is not a technique I'm acquainted with. As faith wanted it, my 1st number generated was nr. 10 - doodling, so......Google here I come. Eventually I came upon a site called Paper Craft Junkies, where you can find tutorials and techniques. According to them: A doodle is basically any mark on your craft project which has been made by hand and can be anything from dashed lines for faux stitching to your handwriting when journaling to extravagant swirls and flourishes. Below is a close up on my attemp on doodling. I do have a natural unsteadiness.

I've used vellum paper from W&M and the glitter dot paper is from DCWV stack - All about girls. Swirls from marianne's design and the flowers done with a clippunch was done with a piece of scrap grey glitter paper due to a lack of silver paper, brads and peel-offs from my stash. The cute dragon is called Smookie and is a clear stamp from Nellie Snellen distributed by Kars in the Netherlands. The sentiment - Always wear your invisible crown - from Paulette from TLC was found on Aud Sentiment's blog. I found it appropriate since my stepdaughter made us very proud on her 3 destinction and as she starts a new era in her life at university soon.

So I'm joining the following challenges:

Sweet Stampin - Spots and dots
