For Someone Special

Hello and Happy Saturday - To those of you who have been or who will be going to the NEC, I hope you have a fabulous time! Unfortunately, I have not been able to go (again!) as my hubby is working!

But I have managed to make a card for someone who is leaving their job very soon - I am going to miss her, and I know many many other people will too!

The image is a Wee Stamps digi called Sweet Blossom from Cuddly Buddly - isn't she soooo sweet!? I have coloured her with Promarkers. The papers and the embossing folder I used are the V&A Hanoverian range from Do Crafts. The border punch I used is X-Cut, as are the heart dies, and the flower dies are from Joy Crafts, fastened together with pearl brads. I coloured the layering card and the adhesive pearls with the pink Promarker to match her dress, and added a touch of glitter with Diamond Stickles.

I followed last week's sketch at the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge, but missed the challenge!

But I am going to enter the following challenges:

Passion for Promarkers - In the Garden
2 Sisters Challenge - Make your own embellishments - I hope using dies to make the flowers and heart count!
Totally Papercrafts - Cuddly and cute
CES Challenge - Die cut crazy

That's probably all I need to say this evening - thank you for calling by! See you soon. I'm going to have another attempt at crochet - attempted earlier in the week but could not get the hang of it at all (LOL!). My sister made Eleri such a gorgeous crocheted jacket a couple of weeks ago, and she's made herself some lovely things, and it's made me wish I could do it - well, what I'd really like to be able to do is to crochet some flowers to add to a card.

Good night!

Love, Andrea xx
