Love to Craft -- All Dressed Up

Hi Everyone!!
Hope my friends
in the UK and Ireland 
are safe from the storms
and all of the floods!!   :) :)  
Things are slowly returning to
"normal" here ~~ tho we did have
an EARTHQUAKE here last night if you 
can believe it??!  Another thing that never
happens in Charlotte, NC!!  So strange 2014 
has been so far!! I really hope that the Mayans 
didn't have the date slightly wrong... and we are 
heading towards the end of the world as we know it!

Ok, enough about all of that!! It's about 11:30am here and my 
post is due in 30 minutes which means that I need to type quickly!!
 I have another cutie for you today from Wendy Burns "All Dressed Up"!

This lovely girl is "Love to Craft" and I just adore her!!
I knew that I had to have her the moment that I saw her because 
of her sweet face and love for crafting!!  She would make a GREAT card
for any of your craft loving friends!!  I have only used the top 3/4 of her because
I needed a square shape for the sketch that is on the challenge blog this fortnight!!  :)

Here is the sketch for this challenge!!
There are 3 paper panels.  The one on the
left is really a light shade, but it's there!!  :) :) 
Hope you can join us this time for your chance to 
WIN a digi from the Etsy shop, All Dressed Up!!  :) :) 

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Bloggers Challenge:  2 or More Patterned Papers
Color Me Creative Classroom:  Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge: Anything Goes
Creative Corner: From the Heart

    One of my (Dutch) colleagues has a sister living in Charlotte, what a coincidence! An earthquake must be very shocking! Hope it wasn't too bad.
