Hi all, apologies to my DT sisters for being late with my post this week, my anxiety attacks are starting to cease thanks to my mum, she may be 96 but she is my rock and she helps so much just being here with me.
Our challenge for the next two weeks at
is all about
we have an awesome new sponsor

Here is my DT card using a stamped image that is in the old wooden block form from Penny Black she was one of the first ones I bought many moons ago
I coloured her with markers then stamped a sentiment, the flowers are also stamps that are from the Dreamees range, I stamped them onto backing paper then cut them out, I distressed the edges with TH Vintage photo ink, I also distressed the edges of all the papers, I added some buttons and pink organza bows. doily and liquid pearls drops.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

My heartfelt thanks go to all my lovely followers who have continued to visit me and leave comments you are so very kind and supportive

Aw sweet friend, I'm glad you have your mum :) My mum (born and raised in Hygh Wycombe) still runs circles around me and she'll be 70 next year! Mums are the best!
Your card is so so sweet! I love the wonderful coloring of the little cutie and the different colored buttons - splendid card. I hope your feel better, sweetie - hugs to you!

MaryH said...

One of the sweetest PB images ever, and I think I have this on an old block too. Love her chubby little knees, and you've got the skin tones perfect...and ditto for her darling blue dress. She's shown to greatest effect with the treatment you've done on the design, with the doily, the distressed overlay circle, the vintage look of the flowers and of course the tiny buttons in spring colors. So glad you're feeling better. Anxiety attacks are awful to experience. I'm so glad you have your Mom there to help you get through. TFS & Hugs

Thank you so much for entering the Through the Purple Haze (Use Flowers) Challenge this time. Lots of luck and I hope we see you again. Hugs to you Sue Pxxx DT.
