I chickened out a bit (pardon the pun) with the colours on the first one but went all out with the second, giving her lime green dungarees.
Both images have been coloured with Stampin' Up marker pens and watercolour pencils. The papers are from HOTP Citrus pad and the sentiment plaques from Making Cards magazine. The stripy ribbon is Anita's and the circles one from Hobbycraft.
All i've added is A4 cardstock folded to make an A5 card, some shiny silver paper and a few peel-off sentiments. I've also put a touch of glitter glue on a few of the butterflies and bunny tails.
As they feature bunnies i'm going to call them Easter Bunny cards and this way they can be used for the Lili of the Valley challenge which is quite simply to make an Easter card.

Now i'm either very brave or very foolish to be putting up the answer to this one, please no laughter.
Curly perms were the BIG thing of the late 1970's and I had mine done a couple of times. A quick blast with a water spray bottle in the morning to tighten the curls and you were set for the day.
I can't believe how young I look in this photo. As it's obviously Summer time it must have been August and I know it was 1978 because it was only a few months later that we found out I was expecting our first child.
I know i've skipped a week and missed out Q & A 12 but that one needs more thought. I will get round to it.

A couple of days ago I decided I must find a way to display the Cd clock I made a few weeks ago as the clock mechanism doesn't have a way to hang it up. I thought of a plate stand which I no longer use and it was perfect.
Then an idea struck me, which it does from time to time, and I tried it to stand a card on and what do you know it worked!
I won't bother looking for an easel now as I have a few of these shoved away in the cupboard.
