 I chose to use a rubber stamp that I have had for many years from the Ching-Chou Kuik range I used Versafine Sepia ink and coloured her with Copics, I added some dies, flower gems, butterflies and lace bow.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges

This would have posted earlier but Microsoft Edge was not playing ball with me, what a surprise, I had it all set up but I couldn't get the pictures to post so I had to close everything down and come over to Chrome, I do hope those darn gremlins haven't found me already..........
Many thanks for visiting and for the lovely comments, the sun is shining at the moment so I will be taking Jess out, my brother unexpectedly turned up late last night with mum and asked if I could have her as his girlfriend had had a fall and was in A&E, it was nice to have her as James is away working in Winchester for a few days.
 I will be seeing you all a little later, until then have a great day.

hi all, just a quickie from me today just in case you thought I had disappeared for good.  I have my new Laptop up and running but I have spent most of the week reading instructions, downloading and backing up, there are still a few things that I have to sort out but did manage to upload my MCS programme and my verse editor programme.  I am back on Google but may well change to Firefox, I have the new Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge which looks quite good but every time I visit a blog I get the cookie message at the top, I have reviewed the settings and cookies are allowed so not sure why the message keeps appearing.  I have turned everything off now and again as my head just could not cope with all the new stuff.  
Anyway in between everything I did manage to make a card and this is what I came up with.  I have used one of my beloved Tilda stamps, hope you like it.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Many thanks for visiting and for your patience, kindness and support, I will be back.

 Hi all today I would like to share a card with you and to enter some challenges.  My card is an 8 x 8 the image is a large rubber stamp that I have had for many years I bought it from Joanna Sheen it was from the Serendipity range that is no longer stocked.  I stamped the image 3 times with Versafine Black Onyx Ink then used clear embossing powder, two of the images I painstakingly cut out coloured and then used silicone glue to create the 3d effect, I used Graph it Markers to colour, the papers are LOTV, I mounted papers and image onto black card, I added two chocolate brown doilies, gold glitter bow topped with a dazzler, I added quite a few AB crystals, die cut butterflies, flowers and sentiment.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I have taken several pictures so you can see how the looks decoupaged.

I will be saving this card for my mum's birthday in November when she will be 96 years young.
I may be missing for a very little while as I am going to set up my new laptop I hope that the gremlins will finally leave me alone and let me enjoy my blogging.
See you soon until then have a great weekend.
