Something a bit different

What a busy week!!  I had visitors all weekend and then spent three days with my youngest granddaughter in the following week which was brilliant but hectic.  Was also trying my best to complete the scrapbook I mentioned in an earlier post and believe it or not IT'S FINISHED!!!  It has been a labour of love but caused so much anxiety and stress trying to finish it on time.  I can't share any of it with you just yet as it would spoil the surprise for the recipient but I will soon, promise.

Today's card is a little bit different for me and I loved making it.  I have used some beautiful stamps from Lavinia Stamps and also one from Clarity Stamps.  I hope you like it.

Happy crafting.

Glamour Girl

Hi there

Don't want to speak too soon but it looks like it may be a nice day today and not before time!!  It is bad enough going to the wardrobe in the morning and finding something that fits well without having to decide what the weather will be like and the in between seasons means that the winter clothes are still hanging around defying you to put them away and the summer clothes are begging to be brought out into the sunshine - what a dilemma!!

Anyway onto today's card.  The beautiful image is one of Krista Smiths called Gypsy Dancer, coloured with Copics - I just love that swirly skirt!! The paper is from Docrafts Daisy and Dandelion Collection - Hawthorn and Bramble, the leafy swirl is a Marianne Die, the ribbon is from Woodware and the flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The pearls are Jewelry Seal Cellphone Stickers and the 6 x 6 card base is from Crafts UK.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Bunny Zoe's MC - Ribbon or Twine
Joanna Sheen FC - Flower Power
Marianne Design Divas - Pearls and Swirls
