My Lovely Supporters

3 Feb 2014


Hi all, I hope you will notice that I have 2 new badges in my sidebar, I have been so lucky to have been chosen in the Top 3 winners for 2 challenges so far, what a lovely start to the year.
I decided to make another 'Love' card using an image from Aurora Wings, I have used pink and purple for the colours but unfortunately it didn't matter how many photos I took at different angles in different lights I still seems to look more blue than purple which is why I am posting more pics than I normally would.
I have used a grey metallic 7 x 7 card for the base, topped with adorable scorable pink card and purple textured card stock.  I punched some hearts in the same colours added them to the corners topped with Cosmic Shimmer Pink Pearl PVA glue. The image I coloured with Graph It Markers, finally I added some white organza ribbon, double bow and gem, the sentiment was added to the image in MCS programme.
The challenges that I would like to enter are as follows:

HAIR: 6120, 6130, 6140, 6170
FACE: 4120, 4115, 4110, 4155, 4135
HEARTS: 5210 5215, 5220
Finally before I go I thought you might like to see the most recent picture of Jess, she loves to snuggle under covers, sometimes she is so still and quiet I don't realise that she is there, lol. 
I would like to thank all who have taken time to visit my humble blog I hope you have enjoyed your visit and like my work please come back soon.

Hi Sweetheart, wow what a striking colour choice but it really stunning. Jess is so like Missy she will cuddle up under pillows and covers to keep warm, and as shes not been well for the last few days it seems shes needed to do that more than ever, hugs Shirleyxxxxx

Well done on the awards Lorraine and this card proves just why, it's stunning and the colours so eye catching.

Lovely photo of Jess, if only my girls were that quiet, but alas with two young dogs in the house too much play goes on much to Daisy's displeasure - she's only three but the matriarch of the pack since Buffy died.

Anyhow, enough chatter from me otherwise I shall forget to thank you for joining in with Allsorts this week.
