Happy Mail

Hello my friends I hope your week is going well so far.  All is good here but having Monday off has so thrown me - it doesn't really take much!

Just thought I would quickly show you a book card I have made, although it nearly went in the bin!  In my infinate wisdom!?! I thought I would add some liquid pearl dots to the image and then proceeded to smudge it all over the place hence the swarm of butterflies to try and hide it.  Then decided I would add a few more pearl dots so not only do we have the swarm it also now looks like shes in the middle of a snowstorm!!!!!

The gorgeous images are some of the first ones I ever bought and still love them dearly.  Coloured with copics and pencils and managed to achieve something a little softer this time.  Sentiment is from Whimsy.

A quick view of the inside.  The tag is made from Nellie Snellen dies.  Papers used were from My Minds Eye Laundry Line so yummy and glittery.  The ribbon flower on the front is hand made the rest are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 

Challenges I would like to enter:

The Sugar Bowl  -  Great sketch + fave image (had to be my Elisabeth Bell images as I said before these were the first ones I bought and set me on the road to my stamp addiction!!!)

Okay thats it from me, I've got an hour before I pick up kiddies from school so I think a quick stamp and colour is in order (quick ha ha not the fastest crafter me!!)

Take care folks and happy crafting.
