Truly Scrumptious #40 & Creative Inspirations #76 & ABC Challenge


Hi girls. Nice to have you calling in to visit my blog. I hope you find your time here well spent and that you find something to bring a smile or even give a bit of inspiration. I appreciate you taking the time to call in.
Well it was a slightly better day health wise yesterday but the weather was dull and overcast so I was never outside. Nothing for it but to spend some time in the craftroom stroking my stash.
I did manage to produce this card that I intend to enter into three challenges. Truly Scrumptious had a fantastic sketch to follow with the added theme "Get Knotted" (I hope the knot in the ribbon qualifies), Creative Inspirations had the colour combo of "Pastel Green, Pink and Cream" and ABC this week was "C is for Charms".
The image I used is a freebie of "A Christmas Fairy" from a magazine coloured using my Copics. The papers are one from My Mind's Eye -Polka Dot Orange (a double sided paper), another two from the My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary Summer Papers Pad and of course Bazzil as a mount. I made the charm myself from some jewelry odds and ends and the other embellishments are from my stash.
I hope you like this card and have a spare minute to leave a comment to let me know what you think. I value your views and love reading what you have to say. So thanks once again for stopping by. Have a great day and stay safe and healthy. Enjoy your crafting and blog hopping.
Love and Hugs,
