Tres girly!

Hi bloggers

You may have noticed, if you visit regularly, that I've been playing around with blog backgrounds.  I'm very fickle about what background I use, but I am on the lookout for one that I really like - so I've been trying a few out.

This one isn't too bad, but I'm not completely struck on it - so it may well change again.  Hopefully not in the next 24 hours though!

So while I was here I'd thought I'd share another card.  Like I said when I have time I'm cramming making them.  At the moment I've got one on the go for a little boys' birthday whose party we are going to on Sunday (cutting it a bit fine I know!) so when that is finished I will be back to share - might not be till end of the weekend or start of next. We should be going out to see Katy Ashworth from Cbeebies at Skeg on Saturday and the birthday party on Sunday.  Also next week is half-term here (already started today with an extra day off for teacher training) so will have limited 'puter time.

Hope everyone has a good weekend and here is my card:


Saturated Canary digi image: Tressa, coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
Die-cut with a nestie and chalked while in the die for definition.
Papers are all from Prima Sparkling Spring paper pad.
Butterfly I got at the Lincoln Papercrafts show.
Border is die cut with CC Designs, Teardrop die.
Craftwork Cards card blank and sentiment.


P.S. Thanks for all the advice on taking pictures, I've digested it all and thinking about what I will be doing - but think I will be investing in a light cube.

A challenge, or two:

Flutter by Wednesday's - #176

I love Promarkers - #88 Ain't it cute!

Pollycraft Monday Challenge - #115 - Girls, girls, girls!
