Good morning everyone and may I start by saying welcome to my new followers Lesley, Heather and Bronwyn and Nela. It really does mean a lot to me that you take the time to become followers of my site.
Have to admit I have had a mad couple of days. On Sunday I noticed a red light on my fridge/freezer.... not good !!!! It had died. Managed to find a new one on line but when I tried to order it it said rejected after I had inserted payment details. I tried another twice then my mobile started ringing. Lloyds TSB fraud line saying they had blocked payment as they thought it was suspicious ?????? By the time I cleared it with them Curry's had blocked the payment as I had tried 3 times........ it ended up with me having to go into the shop and pay. Thankfully it came today and is installed. I now have a bin full of food.... who needs so many packets of prawns? My neigbour did enjoy the pork chops, steak and sausages I sent over :) I have been shopping and the new one is full again :)
Today sees the start of a new challenge at The Paper Shelter where we have a 'Flower Extra
Vaganza'... definitely not a problem to me as I love adding flowers and have missed doing it on my last few cards. Anyway enough waffle onto todays card.
From all the gorgeous images that Veronica and Pedro produce I chose 'Japanese Cute Doll'. She is one I have wanted to use for a while.
She is cut using SB grand decorative ovals and backed on a grand oval. The corners I finally managed to get this week and are Cheery Lynn . I also used a new MS branch punch :)... I enjoyed shopping over Christmas and have quite a few new things to play with.
The Paper is from Papermania by Lucy Cromwell. Flowers from WOC. Shoes from Mei Craft bought about 2 years ago. Ribbon, lace, gems and pearls from my stash.
She is coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils. ( Ooooo did you know that Letrasett have released another 92 Flexmarkers today? I ordered 18 (I have all the others as promarkers) you get one free for every 5 you order :). I also added a little stickles to her dress and flowers.
The inside does match the front of the card.
Our prize this week as always is $30 in products if you use a Paper Shelter image or 3 images of your choice with any other image. I hope you will take the time to look at the beautiful cards the other DT members have made and wish you good luck if you do enter our challenge.
