Truly Scrumptious #32


Hi girls. Thank you all so much for calling in to see what's here. I am slowly getting back into things although it's more of a physical struggle at the minute. It is taking me much longer to do a card but the fact that you seem to appreciate them is the spur I need. I really appreciate you taking the time to browse my blog. I'm beginning to do a bit more blog visiting as well and am beginning to catch up on all you have been up to in the last few weeks. It's great to get up to speed with you all again.
Today'scard is being entered into the Truly Scrumptious challenge where they gave us a fabulous sketch to follow with the choice of doing a sqare card or a circular card. I choose the square one. The image is from my last Magnolia Fairytale Club issue and is called "Longing Tilda". I coloured her using my Polychromos Pencils. The papers are "Laundry Line" by My Mind's Eye and Bazzil. the flowers are handmade and the other embellishments are from my stash.
If you have time it would be fantastic if you could leave a comment to let me know what you think of this one. I do so value your input. Your comments are so encouraging and helpful.
Wherever you are and whatever you are doing today please stay safe and have a good day.
Hugs,
