Hello all and I hope this finds you well.
I am already exhausted and it's only the second day back at work, and I have spent the last two days having serious withdrawal symptoms from my craft shed!!
I thought the best thing to do was to blog one of my cards to at least make me feel like I'm still in the loop!
I made this recently with a gorgeous image from Saturated Canary and coloured her with my Promarkers. I tried using my blender pen, which I have never had much success with but this seemed to work quite well this time and gave quite a nice graduated feel to her dress so I must try using it again a bit more.
The backing paper is from an old Papermania pad and the white edging is cut off from some small cards which I have never used. I glittered the bubbles and added some little punched stars and blue gems to finish off:

I would like to enter her into the following challenges:

Treasured Times challenge # 23- anything goes
Delightful Challenges - layer it
Addicted to Stamps challenge # 86 - pastel colours
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge # 21 -dies or punches
Crafty Boots challenge - sweet 16
Crafty Hazelnut's - September challenge

Thank you so much for stopping by today and for any comments you may wish to leave.
I'm off to finish watching the new Spiderman film as I fell asleep during it last night!!
Take care and until next time.
