Challenge #15 – Colouring Black Hair

shirlc April 23, 2011 5

With all the excitement going on with the
Carnival blog hop
(you have until the 28th April to enter)
I nearly forgot about  the posting for this Saturday.

Just to start us in the right mood for the week ahead girls
thought I would tell you a joke …

I was in the pub with my hubby last night and I said “I love you”
He said is that you or the wine talking ?  I replied … it’s me talking to the wine.  😆

oops, just couldn’t resist it … and I can see you laughing

😯 Quick change of subject

Some Odd Girl
is the sponsor for this weeks challenge.

Below is a wee bit of info about our sponsor:

Some Odd Girl is the place to find fun and quirky digis that I know you will love! Some Odd Girl was inspired by two great friends who are such dolls! They took one of my pencil drawings and made it into red rubber and that act of generosity spiraled into what you see today. I am a married momma of 2 who has a hubby who not only loves me but supports my crafting and my site as my IT guy. What more could a girl want? I am an artist born who started out with pencils then acrylics and now also scrapbook and am a cardmaker. I design things that I love and hope you have as much fun with our stamps as we do!

We’d love to supply the winner with 3 freebies of their choice from our shop so I hope you’ll take a look around and pick your favs!


Challenge for this week is

Black Hair

Black hair, ummmm I’m sure that doesn’t just mean human hair
(have to think about this one)
maybe your fave fur baby …
probably getting into deep water here so, quitting while I’m ahead …
