It's time for a new image release over at The Stamping Chef  we have a beauty for you this week!
She is called 'Jenna' & is available from The Stamping Chef store here! Why you are there make sure you have a look at some of Tamara's other fantastic images, there's something to suit everyone!!

I did something I don't usally do with this card. Usually I colour skin & hair, then decide on what papers I am going to use & then base my colours for my image around my papers! Well I decided after colouring her hair (no idea why, tablets I say...old age Nige says! You decide lol)  I would carry on colouring her clothes. Then after had an almighty panic because I hadn't picked papers oops!! But after having a rummage I found these fabby First Edition ones YAY!!! Disaster averted!

Just love these 'precious stars' thankfully got them straight away this time, instead of having to wait months to get them like I did with the 'precious hearts'!
