25 Jul 2015


Hi all, firstly I would like to thank everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes that I received both on my blog and Facebook, i was overwhelmed with your kindness, you are so awesome, thank you.
Today it is cloudy and a little chilly but at least it is not raining, yesterday it never stopped all day and boy was it cold I even had to put my cardigan on, Jess never went out, she loves puddles and jumping in the brook when out on our walks but she hates to go outside when it is raining.....weird or what, lol.
Anyway today I have a card to share with you and to enter into a few challenges, I hope that you like it.

For my card I have used Bestie image 362, I have used both Graph it Markers and Copics to colour her, the image and papers have been mounted onto gold mirror card, the papers are LOTV, the flowers I stamped with Heartfelt flower stamps then cut them out I used my Hobby-craft punch for the little gold flower in the centres of the big ones and I used liquid pearls for the centres of the small ones, I added some punched butterflies, resin flower, sentiment, lace and pearls.
The challenges I would like to enter are as follows:
Thank you so much for visiting my blog, I will be catching up on commenting over the next few days but I have my mum coming to stay for the weekend so please bear with me, I do appreciate your loyalty and support.

So sorry I missed your Birthday Lorraine, belated wishes and hope you had a good day.

Apols also for not visiting too much lately, having a few ongoing health issues and so hoping I am sorted for our holiday in a weeks time so won't be around for a time then as well.

Gorgeous card today, such rich colours and adorable image, it's perfect for our butterfly theme at Allsorts, many thanks for joining in.

Hope you have a good weekend.

Hi, Lorraine! It's hard to imagine your cold weather when we are so HOT and so HUMID! LOL but it is nice being able to wear a cardigan briefly in the summer. Lorraine, you have done it again! Your Besties image is darling in all her lemony-sunny, cheerful goodness. I especially like your squiggly red framing to draw out the orangey-red in your card. WONDERFUL flowers, pearls and lacy - just darling! Hope your week-end is extra special! xo
