Hi  all, today we have a new challenge for you to try out at
the theme is all about 
our sponsor is
the prize is a choice of 4 images from their store
here is my DT card using an image called
I have coloured her with Graph It Markers and Copics the papers are a mixture of Papermania, Basic Gray and Paper Cellar, I cut out the image and mount with my Spellbinders Crinkle Edge dies and off set them, the papers have also been mounted onto black card, I added some AB gems, pearlescent bobble gems and butterflies, the flowers are Heartfelt Creation stamps I used Versafine Sepia to stamp them then coloured them with Graph it Markers


 A closer view of the image

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I would like to thank everyone who has left me comments on my previous posts, you have been so supportive and kind while I have been having issues with both Blogger/Google and Explorer, I have now changed to Firefox and at the moment it is brilliant albeit I am still trying to learn how to use it.  I have been so used to using Google that it is all so new to me I think I still have a lot to learn, I just hope that this is published OK, I have been around to visit most of you my apologies if I have missed you out but my head is reeling with all the computer stuff that I think I am half way to being brain dead.
Please do bear with me I hope to be on track very soon, unfortunately my craft time has suffered and I have made nothing at all since this card, I was so up to date with my DT work but have fallen behind which is not good so I have a lot of catching up to do.
Thank you all once again you make it all so worth while.

Hello Lorraine, your first past the post today with this lovely creation. I can sympathise with your blogging issues as my internet connection is still giving me huge problems. I was up till 4.30am this morning just posting the new challenge and the winners challenge! Amazed to find I still have a green light on my router so sitting glued to my desk and typing away at speed before it goes again. After nearly 3 months of non existent internet I'm not convinced they have finally fixed the problem yet. Time will tell. I love the soft colours you have gone with and the hair is absolutely fab. Thankyou for choosing to flutterby my #33. hugs Mrs A.

Sheila said...
