Hi all, today I have a card plus a little extra to share with you.  Firstly I will tell you about my card which features a Conie Fong image called Precious I have coloured her with Copics, I have used my XCut scalloped circular die for the red and white card layers, I added a bow, gem, beads in a bottle, flowers and sentiment.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I have been watching Debbie Moore on C&C and decided to have ago at some book folding, I found an old Mills & Boon paperback and tried the Hedgehog, I added a pink gingham ribbon and some buttons, I would be interested in what you think.

and here is my precious little baby girl Jess, I was stripping the beds and found her like this so ran and got my camera to take a few pictures.

My beloved Polo hated anything covering him but Jess loves to burrow under any cover sometimes I don;t even know she is there, lol, bless her.

Your card is beautiful Lorraine the red and white combination is gorgeous and your hedgehog is brilliant - I've not been brave enough to try book folding yet!
Jess looks like she's having great fun, she's still full of mischief.

Beautiful image and beautiful card Lorraine!
Love the photos of Jess...my friends had a Jack Russell, Judy, fondly known as Bog Breath :( who was only happy to sleep if every inch of her was covered by her blanket...very entertaining to watch her sorting it out for the night!!!

As always a very pretty card Lorraine, the book folding looks so intricate but great finished project but as you might guess it's Jess who steals this post.

Gorgeous card, lovely pic of Jess. Your book folding is great but I must admit I don't really get it but maybe that is because I am an avid book reader x

Gorgeous card, Lorraine, the white and red combo is so striking. Book folding seems WAY too complicated for my small brain but it does look amazing! Love that picture of Jess! Sometimes we ALL need a duvet day!! :) Have a lovely weekend!

Pamellia Johnson said...

Beautiful card Lorraine, and I can't believe you have done the book folding thing! Never tried it but I know I would NOT have the patience for that! Your little Jesse has stolen the show today! What a cutie, and isn't true that no matter how many toys you buy them, they still have the most fun with blanket and tissues! HA! hugs :)
