Hi peeps

It seems ages since I had something new to show you, but to be honest in between whiles I had to make one of the dreaded 'man' cards, and as it wasn't really anything exciting I decided not to bother putting it on the blog.  I've also been suffering from a lot of migraine headaches lately, so what with that and my back, my crafting time has been even more curtailed!  Still, never mind, off to see the doc tomorrow as I think the headaches could be caused by the drugs I take for my back - let's hope he can help!

Anyway, onto the card.  I'm rather pleased with this one, as I LOVE this bright pink colour - anyone who knows me will tell you I wear it all the time, lol.  The gorgeous image is by Elizabeth Bell and is one of the recently released 'Little Peekers' range - I got mine from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie - brilliant service!! The papers are Dovecrafts - Back to Basics 2 - a lovely selection of stripes and spots in all sorts of gorgeous bright and pale colours - REALLY good value for money!   The doily is a die cut which I made with my new die from Cheery Lynn.  I have to say that for a VERY intricate design, this die cuts BEAUTIFULLY!  I'd highly recommend it.  The image is coloured with Copics, and cut out with Nesties, as are the hearts tucked behind it.  The flower is homemade, and the leaves were done with an MS punch.  I boobed, and glued the image a little higher than I'd planned, thus throwing the balance of the whole card out of kilter, but after a bit of faffing around, I added the three black candies (home made of course, lol), and the little strip of black underneath it, just draws the eye back where I wanted it to be.

I do hope you like it, and as always would love it if you have time to leave a comment for me, as when I'm stuck in bed, and log in, to find you girls have been thinking of me, it really makes my day!
