Feelin' it now?

Good morning blogworld

Look at me, back again so soon!  I think at the moment that it's a good job I'm on a fair number of DT's otherwise you wouldn't be seeing me at all.  I'm really struggling to get my bottom in gear and do anything at all at the mo.  I think it must be my annual blues - hopefully once the clocks go forward and we get better weather I'll recover the old zing in the step, for now I'll just keep quiet and wait!

So here I am with my card for the new challenge over at Moving Along With The Times - this week the challenge is set by Claire and she has picked 'Love is in the Air', appropriate - eh!!

We are sponsored by:

 with the fab prize of a paper set for one lucky person!

Now I have to confess that I'm not a digital paper person, I have some but me and them just generally don't get along!  I much prefer having a paper stack to stroke and admire, but these papers are very pretty with lovely colours - and I have to say a very big thanks to my teamie Laurie for helping me with them!

So here we go, here's the old card.
Front shot:

Detail of image:

 The arty farty:

I used:
My Favorite Things - Doodle Garden: Far Out 
coloured with me Pros

L'eanne - circle
Whimsy - fence

Raspberry Road - Pink Lemonade

Anything else?
Sentiment - computer generated
3d gloss on her glasses

So hope you like, I'm not too sure!

I'll see you soon,

PS - Oh and for those of you who might even be vaguely interested - we never did go bed shopping for SHMbO.  He backed out (lots more important things to do - humph!) but we have now got it in the diary for next week.  And SHMbO is extremely excited that she's not having to wait until she's six until she gets a new bed!!
