Cutie Sunday #107 & The Crafty Pad #86 & Totally Tilda #4 & Simon Says

Hi girls, I'm glad you have had the time to call in to my blog today. I hope you enjoy your visit. I don't know if there was a general Blogger problem yesterday but I had difficulty leaving comments and received very few alerts that new cards had been posted. Maybe it was just a slow day but it was very frustrating.
It was another warm sunny day and I did sit out for a while. Long may it continue.
Todays card was made to fit in with four challenges. Cutie Sunday gave us a fabulous sketch to follow, The Crafty Pad theme was "Simply Pearls", Totally Tilda wanted "Lilac and Lace" and Simon Says had a "Pearls and Lace" theme. I inked up Magnolia's "Tilda Carrying a Lamb". The papers are Making Memories' "Pitter Patter Sophie" and Magnolia Ink's "A Little Yummy for my Tummy". I coloured the image with a mix of my Copics and Polychromos Pencils. I have used Wild Orchid flowers and everything else is from my stash.
I hope you like this card and Blogger permitting you might even be able to leave me a comment telling me what you think. I love reading what you have to say.
Have a great weekend and stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,

  21. Hi Fiona,
    Have to say sorry for my lack of popping over lately, wonder sometimes why people put up with my bad blogging...I am not the quickest making cards, most of the time only manage my Dt stuff...Too critical of myself most of the time but really love letting my hair down and playing along with challenges when I feel I can bring something to the table...
    Wish I could be a bit faster though,by the time I come up with something the challenges have usually

    It is so lovely and so appreciated to have you and my other pals pop by, Dt stuff is fab but even if there are 200 people enter the challenge I would be lucky to have one or two stop by to see my blog and leave a note...

    Speaking my mind, sorry...take no notice, just feeling sorry for myself I suppose...Was gonna ask why your not on a Dt but I think I have put you off before I

    It's a real pleasure coming over to see your cards...You have a natural knack for it...
