"Text Me"

Good morning everyone from a rather misty Bournemouth which I'm hoping will burn off later to leave us with another beautiful day.  The mornings and evenings are starting to have that lovely fresh autumnal smell about them and although I will be sad to see the warmer weather go I just love autumn its my most favourite season.
As I'm up nice and early today I thought I would load up my latest creation for you.  This time I've used a Kenny K image called 'Texting Diva' which is from Whimsy's latest release.  I've coupled her with the 'Tiny Shapes Die' set which is fab you get three little shaped dies to use and I opted for the heart one on this card.  The image has been coloured up using copics and then once I'd cut it out with my Spellbinders die I just left it all in place and inked around it before taking it out to give me the white border around the image. 
Medium:  copics
Papers:  Prima 'Rondelle'
Dies:  Whimsy 'Tiny Shapes' die set, Spellbinders 'Romantic Rectangles', Dienamics 'Crochet' border
The close up.  Fab image isn't she - she can be used for so many things so a good one to have in your stash I think.  Now I'm not too hot with text speak so I just went with 'lol' which for the purpose of my card is 'lots of love'.

List of copics
Face/body:  E000, E00, E21, E11, R20, R30
Hair:  W00, W1, W3, W5, W7, 100
Trousers:  W1, W3, W5, W7
Top:  YR16, YR23, YR31
Phone/Necklace/Belt:  R81, R83, R85
Okay, a couple of challenges I would like to enter this card into:
Right time for me to toodle on off now folks.  Its my little girl's last day at home today so we have some serious chillin out to do.  We've got a tinkerbell film lined up with the obligatory popcorn and chocolate fest and maybe a batch or two of cookie making.  My boy had his first day of senior school yesterday and he came home buzzing so I was happy as I had been worried all day that he would hate it.  Today will be the tester though as yesterday it was just the new Year 7 but today the whole school is back so we'll see. 
Take care everyone and catch up with you soon.
