VC Challenge

Good morning to you all hope the weather is as nice where you are as it is here is sunny Gloucestershire. I made this card for the VC Challenge last night (early morning) and I am quietly pleased with the outcome. It is based on a sketch by VC and the image is a freebie which I just could not resist isn't she beautiful. I have coloured her with promarkers and added some stickles to her wings. The papers are Bearlymine and the flowers are from Fred She Said I have added a few gems as well. I did not want to over embellish because I think on this occasion the image is definitely centre attraction. Well I hope to be back later with some more postings and visits to your blogs. My mum is coming to stay with me for a few days because she passed out last Sunday while out for the day with my sister and I think it has shook her up. It has never happened to her before and she has lost a bit of her confidence so I know she will be happy staying indoors with Polo and me for company lol. Hugs to you all.

Morning Lorraine, I love your little character, shes certainly got some attitude. Beautifully coloured and the papers and details are stunning. Im sorry to hear that your mum isnt to good, and Im sure she will love to be with your for a few days to recover from her fall.
My daughter also had a fall when picking up her boys from School (she has MS) and has been badly shaken up so Im not surprised your mum is also feeling a bit shaky. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxx

Gosh Lorraine, just as I was patting myself on the back thinking I was finally keeping up with you, I visit this morning to find no less than 5 new offerings! Okay, I officially surrender lol!!
What a fantastic collection, the image on this one is just wonderful - a fairy with attitude and your colouring has really brought that out.
Sorry to hear about your Mum, I'm sure you and Polo will be just what she needs.

Lorraine, oh little Tara is so cute. I love looking at cards that I've also made cards for the same challenge to see how much they differ. I always say "why didn't I think of that?" but I think a lot of us might do that. You have certainly been busy. Hope you Mum gets some quality time with you and Polo and that with taking each day at a time she gains her confidence back. Best wishes, Kym xxx
