Ruby - Sylvia Zet

Good evening everyone. Don't know about anyone else but I have been totally confused this week.  I thought it was only Google Reader that was going but found my dashboard had vanished as well so went into panic mode and joined Bloglovin. I then found yesterday that my dashboard was back and fully functional... phew... I have to admit I prefer this to other alternatives. 
Went back to work yesterday to find we were having a change around in the office and had to start emptying cupboards, cabinets and moving all my files etc.  It was a good move though. Went from being in a dark no sunshine part of the building to being beside the windows and lots of sunshine. I used to call the building I work in 'the cave' as it was so dark, but it was a pleasure to go in today. Anyway what I am getting around to is appologies for not getting around the blogs, too shattered to do anything yesterday after watching Murray's fantastic match, well the end of it. Still going to have to have another early night as I have an early start in the morning.

Enough of the waffle you cry..... I may no longer be a GD for Wee Stamps but couldn't resist colouring another one up :)  I have used 'Ruby'... I think she is gorgeous.


I just had to go with a lavender and lace version. She is cut with SB grand scalloped circles with a faux nestie behind her. The corners are from Joy crafts. The doily was square until I extended it (it was a gift from my friend Judy, thanks Judy). The squared pearl ribbon is from Hobby House. Flowers and lace from WOC. Pearls, ribbon and tiny jewel flowers from my stash. Backing paper from Nitwits.


She is coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Triamarkers and Prisma Pencils. I also added distress ink to the background, stickles to the centre of the flowers and Viva decor pen as highlights.


The inside does reflect the front.


I am entering the following challenges:-



Thanks for taking the time to look
