Domestic Goddess

Ah, I'm feeling slightly like a domestic goddess this morning!  It's just gone 9am and I've already done 2 lots of washing (one of which is drying) plus a bit of tidying up and have been to Sainsbury's and got some bits and petrol (we went yesterday but it was that busy we couldn't park - no spaces at all!  So turned round and came home hence the early start this morning!)  However, my cooking skills are rather lacking so maybe not a domestic goddess!

The image I've used here is part of a wonderful retro download from Papercraft Inspirations.  There are different images in different sizes plus sentiments.  I printed the pack as was and used the largest image in this particular set but had to trim it down somewhat to fit on the card blank!

I've used leftover papers and scraps (I've had to join them carefully!) from Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 collection and then added some ribbons from my stash - they actually tuck underneath her skirt.

The flowers and brad I found in my stash and were lying around so at least they have been put to good use!  I bit of stickles here and there and a dab of liquid pearls for her earring.
