Hi Everyone

Have you missed me?  ;o)  I'm back at last - whoo hoo!

My finger seems to have healed well and is not currently going into spasm or causing me any pain and there are no more injections on the horizon so I have been given a clean bill of health - yay - which also means no operation any time soon - awesome!

Before I get on with the post I would just like to say "Thank You So Much" to all you truly wonderful people out there who have sent me all good wishes - I am very touched - you are all amazing.

I would like to say a big "HELLO" to my new follower - Emz - thank you for choosing to come and take a peak at my little world - I am very flattered.

So it's Saturday, which means it's challenge time over at Totally Gorjuss where our theme this week is "Hey Baby.

Our generous sponsor for the challenge is Crafter's Companion so if you want to be in with a chance to win a £10 voucher to spend in their on line store - then what are you waiting for?  Get yourselves over to the Totally Gorjuss challenge blog and get your entries in.  If you are stuck for inspiration, check out what the wonderful DT girlies have made to whet you appetite.

So, without further ado, here is the card I have made:

Ain't he just so sweet!

The recipe for the card is:

Stamp:  Wee Stamps - Angel Cody
Papers:  Maja - Vintage Spring Basics
Roses Dies:  Die-namics - Large Rolled Rose and Mini Rolled Roses
Daisy Die:  Marianne Design Creatables - Branch and Flower 2
Swirl & Foliage Die:  Magnolia Doohickey - Leaf and Swirl
Sentiment Die:  La La Land - Stitched Tabs

I have coloured the image with mainly Copics and a Flexmarker and Promarker:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Hair:  E25 E34 E31
Clothes:  Cloud Blue (Flexmarker) Powder Blue (Promarker) B91
Stars:  Y19 Y15 Y11

I have outlined the image with Weathered Wood Distress Ink
All the papers have been edged with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink

And that's it.

Thanks you all again for your wonderful comments - it's so good to be back.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and thank you for popping by.

Beautiful card Hazel, love the cute image and all the cool blues. Glad your finger is better and that you don't have to have any ops, I know what they are like as I have had an op for Carpul Tunnel on both hands and two ops for trigger fingers. Enjoy the weekend in this lovely weather.

This is absolutely gorgeous. What beautiful coloring and a spectacular design. All of your creations are stunning, esp. your coloring!

Glad to hear your hand is healing. I've been going through the same so I know first hand what you have been through. One more injection in my right hand and I should be good to go.
