I'd like you to meet Lulu!

Hello all and I hope that your week has been going well? Thankfully we've had sunshine today but quite a brisk wind (just sent Him Indoors down the garden to fasten panels back on the greenhouse roof!). I've had stinking headaches again - have been on permanent painkillers from doc for 'chronic headaches' as he called them (you're telling me!) but not so good today and to add to general feeling of well-being I had a visit to the dentist today too! Anyway, less moaning! And I'm glad to report the dentist didn't need to do anything and the headache has eased a bit this evening.

I'd just like to share another of the gorgeous new releases from Whimsy Digital with you and this one is from Kathryne at StampArtDesign and this little cutie is called Lulu! 

I've coloured the image with promarkers and flexmarkers

The backing papers are from First Edition. I've added a Memory Box 'arboscello tree' die cut and the DooHickey 'lovely fence'. Then some punched flowers with pearl centres.  The sentiment is also from Whimsy. 
Do go over to Whimsy and have a look at the fabulous releases for May - there's something for everyone! 
Back soon, 
Kim x
