Delicious Doodles #5

Hi girls. Thank you so much for calling in to see my blog at this very busy time of year. I appreciate you making the effort. Wow only two more nights to go until the big day. Well if there is anything still not done it is unlikely to get done now.
I decided that it's well past time that I was entering my blogging pal Teri's challenge over at Delicious Doodles. I have made this card using one of Teri's own images - "Hyacinth" and followed the wonderful sketch given. I stamped the image two or three times and cut out some of the elements to allow me to decoupage the flower and I coloured them using my Copic Ciaos. The papers are all downloads from a CD and the flowers are hand made by me. the gems are all from my stash.

Angled view showing the decoupage.

I hope you like this card. Teris has some wonderful digis available over at Delicious Doodles shop. Her artwork is fabulous. Why not pop over and have a look for yourself.

I hope you like this card and if you have a minute to drop a comment on my blog letting me know what you think, I would be very grateful. I love reading what you say.

If the weather and roads are OK we are travelling down to my son's in Solihull at the beginning of the week to spend New Year down there. I have been given a portable oxygen machine on loan so that we can travel and I am really looking forward to having a break away from my own four walls. I will not be posting any more cards until we get home in January but I will be popping in to my regular blogs to see what you are doing and to leave comments. Have a great Christmas and a wonderful New Year. Thank you all for your friendship, support and encouragement throughout 2010 and for the wonderful creations you have shared.

Special Love and Hugs,
