Hi all, I didn't think that I would get here as Google/Blogger is on a major go slow, but I made it and I have a card that I would like to share with you and enter into some challenges:
The theme of my card is LOVE I have used an image from CHING-CHOU KUIK called BUNCH OF LOVE
I have coloured her with both Graph It Markers and Copics, the papers are from LOTV, I used faux stitching around the balloons and image, I added glitter for the balloon strings, I then added a red doily heart, sentiment and some pearl liquid.  
I am not very adventurous with my crafting as I used to be, I am getting the urge to try something a little different now and again and on this card I have actually done some paper tearing for the border across the centre.
I have used a 7 x 7 black card base the papers have all been mounted onto red cardstock, the image I mounted on both black and red cardstock.
I apologise for the picture quality but I could not get the right lighting on this occasion.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I I would like to send my heartfelt thanks to all my followers and to everyone who is so kind to leave me such wonderful comments, I would also like to welcome all my new followers, thank you
See you a little later, I have my mum staying with me at the moment so will be a little busy

I think Blogger is on total meltdown Lorraine, it's a totally pain with all sorts of issues the last few weeks.

What a wonderful card today, the image is coloured so beautifully, I need to come for lessons.
