Lili's Little Dancer

Morning everyone, notice I didn't say good! It's raining so hard here and it looks like it's in for the day!
A very quick post from me today as I'm supposed to be at work. I've been trying to find enough time to enter the LOTV challenge for weeks but never managed it. This week I was determined to come up with something and lo and behold - I've got days to spare!!
Once again this is the first time this lovely little lady has seen an ink pad - so many stamps, so little time - I seem to be going through a 'feather phase' and may have got a little carried away! The gorgeous roses are from WOC and so are the pearl stamen. As always I've coloured with Copics.

I hope your weekend is brighter than mine, if not you'll all get plenty of time to craft!
Thank you for dropping by and to those that do - for the comments

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
