Let your dreams take flight

Good evening my lovelies.  A bit of a late pop in from me but it's just been one of those days .. you know the sort where you've been busy but nothing actually got done kinda day .. yes one of those and don't you just hate them .. well I do with a passion.  Hubby was home today the first Saturday in at least a month where he's not had to work and I thought hey that will be kinda nice - yes until that was he had a great idea he was going to tidy and rearrange his garage.  Somehow, not quite sure how, but I seem to now have a conservatory full of 'toot' that was obviously in the garage for a reason and he's decided he doesn't want it in there so I feel a tip run coming on big time!

Anyway, I digress, what I'm really popping in for is not to share my moans with you all but to share my latest creation with you.  I was asked by a dear friend if I would make her a card for her to give to her daughter after her proms and exams have all finished.  My only remit was to have an image of a dress to resemble her prom dress and the colour minty green but with a turquoise hint to it to match her outfit and her hair to be strawberry blonde.  Of course my first port of call was Saturated Canary as I knew I would find an image for what I needed from Krista's amazing collection and I settled on 'Bubbles' who I think is perfect.  She has as normal been coloured with copics.  I was lucky enough to have in my collection the gorgeous Melissa Frances '5th Avenue' paper pad which complimented the image perfectly.  I decided to distress things up a little and roughed up the edges of the papers and inked them up with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  In fact I went a little bit ink crazy and distressed quite a lot buy hey I like the outcome so no worries.

Okay that's all from me this evening.  It's late and I really should climb the wooden hill to bed but I bought a couple of digis in the week and I haven't had chance to play with them yet so my fingers are itching to colour so maybe I'll just have a very quick play honest!!

Take care folks and happy crafting.
