20 Jul 2013


Hi all, it is a tad bit cooler here today thank goodness although the forecast says it is going to be even hotter next week for once I wish they have got it wrong.
I have some wonderful news to share and that is my 'Pink Delight' card won the Gem of a Challenge, i was thrilled I have the badge at the top of my blog, I feel so honoured.
Today I have made a card using another Pink Gem image this one is called 'Emma in Torn Jeans'  for a change I have coloured her with promarkers.
I used my embossing board for the shapes and when opened flat it is an 8 x8 card, I have gone for citrus colours lemon and lime, the base card is pearlescent I have used one of my 8 x 8 embossing folders, the pearls are Viva Decor, I also used my X-Cut Star die cuts, the sentiment is from one of my Inky Doodles stamp sets, I doodled the frame and the white dots in her hair.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
 I would like to thank each and everyone of you who were kind enough to visit and leave some wonderful comments on my previous posts, I really, really appreciate it.
hugs to all.

Wonderful card Lorraine...So bright and sunny...perfect for this heat wave of a summer we are currently having.

Your Bday card might be a tad late...We are up at the RV and only one lady knows how to check the mail for depth size pricing and international postage...otherwise there is only the postal box and then it could arrive owing postage.....not a nice bday gift at all.
