You can tell I’m not in work lol!

As the title says you know I’m not in work because I’m actually posting cards lol!  I wanted to share a card I actually made when I was GDT over at the Sweet Stampin’ challenge but didn’t get around to posting at the time!  I made a circle card for a change and used a gorgeous image from Saturated Canary called “Whispy”.  Here is my card:

Isn’t this image just adorable.  I coloured her with promarkers and flex markers and cut her out.  The pretty dotty paper has been in my stash for years – I think it was in a super duper 12x12 pad that I got from QVC when I first started crafting!!  To make the card base I used a extra large scallop circle die from go-kreate.  The doily is from Joanna Sheen and the stunning gingham ribbon is from fantastic ribbons

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Saturated canary challenge – Doilies

Pile it on challenge – spots or stripes or both

Stampin’ sisters in Christ challenge – things with wings

Stamps and fun = creativity challenge – one bow

Ladybug crafts ink challenge – pink and girly

Papertake challenge – anything goes

Crafts and me challenge – things with wings

I love promarkers challenge – ribbons and bows

A gem of a challenge – perfect pastels (hope it’s ok that I used some black too!)

Allsorts challenge – spread your wings

I hope you’re all having a great day so far.  The weather here has been "mixed” shall we say, ranging from torrential rain to bright sunshine and then gale force winds but at least it’s sunny for the time being.  I may be back later with another card – I know I’m going from one extreme to the other but I have to make the most of the time to catch up on some cards I haven’t had chance to share with you.  Until then have a brilliant day and thanks so much for stopping by.  I really appreciate your lovely comments.
