Hurrah, no more work for 2 weeks and our school finished today for 6 weeks. Just hoping that the weather improves as I am not jetting off to sunnier climes unfortunately! Been up since 5.30a.m. as couldn't sleep. Here is the card I made this morning

The image is Whispy from Saturated Canary and I have coloured her with Pro and Flexmarkers. Papers are Teresa Collins and the sentiment is a Die-namics set. It is not quite in a straight line but I think it looks okay as it is handwriting type script. The flower is from Spellbinders Aster set with a pearl added in the centre. I used shimmer paint on her wings and added stickles to the frills of her skirt for extra sparkle

Happy Hump Day!!

How I love a Wednesday, it's my day off so one of my favourite days of the week. Managed to fit in a pedicure, lunch with hubby and a haircut so now it's time to do some ironing and mum's taxi duties. First I thought I'd share the card I made last night
This gorgeous image was a freebie from Krista at Saturated Canary - thank you so much Krista!!
I have coloured her with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, tried a new colour combo for the hair, which I think has turned out okay. The papers are MME Bloom and Grow and the sentiment is Little Claire's. The delicious roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pearls were from my stash. I am entering this into the following challenges

Cannot believe that a whole week has passed without me posting a card. Here is a card made using another image from Redonkulous Designs. This is Goth Birthday

Isn't she great? She has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, the papers are DCWV and you will see from the annoying glare on the tartan paper that they are yummy embossed, glittered papers. The sentiment is SU!
A closer look for you
