Hanging in There

Hi girls. As the title suggests I am posting this card to try and keep my blog going. I haven't had the best of weeks and I have done little or no commenting. I am afraid the energy levels are low. I am so grateful to all of you who keep visiting and commenting on my cards because I don't think I'm keeping up my end at the minute. thank you so much for calling in.
I made this card at a class run by my friend Kathleen over at The Daisy Chain so all the materials were supplied by her. The image is Lili of the Valley's "Little Ballerina" and she is coloured using Promarkers. The papers are digis from Nitwits Collections and the doily was made using a Marrianne Designs punch. The flower is also from Marrianne |Designs. 
I hope you like this card and that you might have time to leave a comment. I hope you are having a great weekend ans that you are all well. I hope to do more blogging this week.


  1. Hope you feel a bit brighter soon Fiona. Your card is really sweet, I love her sparkly dress and those NitWit papers a gorgeous.
