Well Hello to Everyone

How are you all?  I hope you are all keeping well.  I know I haven't been around for a little while but I have been working away and then managed to get struck down with the flu which knocked me for six I can tell ya!  I will make sure I catch up with you all this weekend - can't wait to see what you've all been up too!

A great big 'HELLO' to my new followers - I'm thrilled you have chosen to follow me in my little world - thank you.

So, it's Saturday and it's time for a challenge over at Totally Gorjuss and this week the challenge is "Anything Goes + Lace" - easy peasy huh!

Our generous sponsor for this week is J & C Creations, so if you want to be in with a chance to win £10 to spend on their on-line shop then make sure you get your entries in over at Totally Gorjuss and check out what the lovely DT ladies have made to whet your appetite.

Here is the card I have made:

There are so many talented people out there in blog-land and I so admire their creations - they give me such inspiration.  I love the cards where all the embellishments go outside the card edges and this was my attempt at it!  I so must try harder - although I did manage to get a few little bits outside the edges ;o)

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Saturated Canary - Marry Me by Krista Smith
Papers:  Kaisercraft - Sweet Nothings
Berries:  Magnolia - Whitely
Corner Die:  Memory Box - Corner Bow
Metal Corners and Pearls:  The Hobby House
Flower Ribbon, Netting and Small White Flowers:  From My Stash

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E11 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Hair:  E37 E35 E34 E31
Dress:  C2 C1 C00 Blender Pen
Flowers:  YR01 YR00 YR000
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0

The image has been outlined with Iced Spruce Distress Ink
The papers have been edged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink

Here is my arty picture of the inside:

And there you have it.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and for all your lovely comments.

Have a great weekend.
