Creative Card Crew & Papertake Weekly

Hi girls. Great to have you popping in to my wee blog. I hesitate to say this but we actually had enough sun today for me to sit outside for a couple of hours. Is it possible we are going to get some decent weather for a spell? - time will tell.
I did manage to get a card made though. Truth to tell I didn't sleep well overnight Saturday to Sunday and got up early and managed to get this done. I intend to enter it into two challenges. Creative Card Crew want something "Cute and Girly" and Papertake Weekly are asking for "White and Bright". The image is Lili of the Valley's "Hello Gorgeous" and is coloured with a mixture of Copics and Polychromos Pencils. The papers are all freebies from magazines and the flowers are from Wild Orchid. I used a Martha Stewart double edged doily punch for the border across the centre of the card although not much of it is not seen.
I do hope you like this enough to take the extra time to leave a comment. I love reading what you have to say and I value your opinions. Thank you so much for calling in. I hope that you have an enjoyable and productive day and above all stay safe.
Hugs,

  3. I'm glad its not just me that didn't sleep. I've done something to my foot and the pain and throbbing last night was unreal - so was up at 3am! I love this card Fiona and those flowers are stunning. Hope the sun is shining for you again today. Hugs, Claire x
