I'm back from my hols, and having been home for a week can hardly remember what it was like to spend every day soaking up the sun, and reading, punctuated with the occasional swim!!
Since I got back I've been suffering with the migraines again, which is a bit annoying although it would have been worse if I'd had them while I was away, although I was daft enough to spend a bit too much time pottering in the garden one afternoon, and although it was a bit cloudy, still managed to give myself sunstroke!!
Anyway, I'm now back in the old routine, and this is my first card. I ordered this stamp from Sweet Pea in the US before I went away, and was chuffed to find it here waiting for me upon my return, so at the first opportunity got it inked up. The card turned out TOTALLY different to what I initially visualised, as I'd planned on using pink papers, but once I'd coloured her in, I felt that she looked a bit insipid against the pink, but really jumped out at me from the khaki coloured papers, which I think came from a Paper Cellar pack?? I was really pleased to grab some of this gorgeous lace VERY cheaply from a Spanish market that I visited - I went looking for flip flops and handbags, and came away with lace, lol. The pearl swirl I made myself, as I was too tight to buy some, lol, but having seen how much work goes into it, I can see why they tend to be a bit pricey. Still I enjoyed fiddling around with it, so may well do some more.
Hope you like it, and if you have time to leave a comment, it would as always, be MUCH appreciated.
