Cricut and Mami Doodles!

As some of you already know I have a love/hate relationship with my cricut expression, I bought it months ago but struggled with the mats, clean cuts etc, so it has been an ornament gathering dust until recently I had an idea for a workshop card so I took it, dusted it off :) and tried it, hey presto I love it !!!! so much so I decided to create a card today and this is the finished result, The base card is cut with the cricut and I dressed up this gorgeous little Mami Doodles girl ( from the Ligia playing  dress up set) with cotton/tulle ribbon and a bow! I coloured her with pro markers!
This is a real ME card with ribbon,flourishes, butterflies, tiny pearls and a tasteful amount of glitter!
I am entering this card into the following challenges.
A spoon full of sugar ~ Happy Birthday 
Charisma Cardz Challenge ~ Bingo/ I used a flower brad/ pearls and glitter  
Crazy for challenges ~ Shape it up
The Pink Elephant ~ Butterflies

Altered Dress Mannequin!

 I will be bringing my jewellery to sell at the GBCE and while browsing around for some nice jewellery display stands I came accross a wire dress mannequin that I loved, but me being me I challenged myself to dress it up into something more elegant and this is what I came up with, it is not completly finished yet I still have some final touches to add but I think with some nice jewellery displayed on it, it will look nice !
