At Long Last - A Card


Hi girls. Thank you for nipping over here once again. At least today I have a card to show you, and a special card it is because I have made this for each and every one of you just to say "Thank You" for all your good wishes, comments and prayers these last 5 weeks while I have been out of commission. Ideally of course I would make dozens of these and post one of to each of you but I don't think I have the oomph so please accept this as especially for you personally. I am not entering it into any challenges.
The image is Magnolia Fairytale "Midsummer Tilda Dancing" and I have coloured her using my Copics. I have added a string of small pearls from her hands around the top of the Nestability mount to look like a skipping rope (it will be better seen if you zoom in). I sewed the ribbon on to a Nestie of the same size and then glued the image Nestie on top. The paper is S.E.I's "Juliette - First Kiss", and the corners have been cut using a Martha Stewart corner punch. The flowers are all from my stash. I hope you like it enough to leave a comment confirming your happy to accept it as a thank you for everything you have done to perk me up.
Have a great day whatever you are doing and above all stay healthy and safe.
Hugs,

  5. Wow Fiona, your mojo certainly hasn't been affected by your 5 wk hiatus!!! This card is simply exquisite - Tilda is coloured so beautifully and I love the idea of creating her a pearl skipping rope! And the lace around the nestie coupled with those flowers finish this card off perfectly! I will very kindly accept this as a thank you from you and can just be so thankful that you are now well enough to create and post!!
    Hugs, Danielle
