Balloon Girl

Woo hoo, I've just seen that I've got my 600th follower today.  I've been hovering just below 600 for months.  Thank you so much to everyone who follows me and reads my drivel!  I'm so proud that you want to read more from me!

I've got another 'just for fun' card to share today, and a real Clean & Simple design with none of my usual array of embellies (OK, one flower, but a girl's gotta be allowed one flower, right?)

The image is Ava, and she's just adorable, isn't she.  I also really like this sketch layout and think I might use it again soon.  I did some stitching although it is barely visible, so maybe I should use a darker thread on the lighter backgrounds!

Congrats on the 600.....woohoo!
Want you to know I've been following for an age, but rarely comment, simply because I have to limit the amount of typing I do....surgery on arm....but read each and every post!
I agree with you about the layout....it's delightful, as is the whole creation...just lovely!
