Hi all, I have scheduled this post so I do hope that it gets published on time, I will not hold my breathe especially with the way Blogger seems to be acting up with me at the moment.  I have been trying to do my visits and commenting which has not been easy I keep having to refresh the pages even then it doesn't always work, i am so close to tears that I have given up....for the moment anyway.
It is time for the new challenge at 
this week the them is all about
Here is my DT card.
I have used the image Primrose, Garden Flowers, I have coloured her with Copics then mounted her onto pink card stock.
I have done a central stepper card using SU Burgundy card stock, the papers are from Back To Basics, I have punched some flowers then added pearl flowers for their centres, I also punched some swirls and added green gems finally I added a sentiment.
I am not 100% happy with this card it just did not turn out the way I had envisaged, I really haven't done justice to this gorgeous image but I suppose I can blame it on the infection I have which is not clearing up even with the anti biotics.  I apologise for my little moan please forgive me.
I mau enter this card into some challenges tomorrow, if so I will edit the post.
I do hope you will come join our challenge this week.

Great stepper card Lorraine, such a sweet image and pretty papers - I really should try to make some different card shapes, I always seem to stick to squares and rectangles.
I'm sorry your infection doesn't seem to be clearing up - perhaps a trip to the doctor is called for - I do hope you get it sorted soon.

brenda said...

It is a really great stepper card Lorraine and the focal image at a jaunty angle works perfectly.

I've only ever made one or two stepper cards, I never seem to be able to get a nice balanced look, must try harder I suppose.

Hello again Lorraine,

I read your post then totally forgot to mention about what you said about blogger.

I've not personally had problems this week, but something was telling me at the weekend they had issues with scheduling posts, the chances are bloggers messing with something or the other.

It can be so frustrating, but try not to let it get you down.
