best laid plans... and all!

Hello bloggers.

On Monday - I was so full of plans - I had intended to make several cards and post them, but those plans went by the wayside, when my temperature shot up and I've ended up with a nasty bout of flu.  I only had the jab last Thursday, but I must have caught the virus around the time I got my shot, when my Harrison brought it home for Nursery on Wednesday! Typical!!!

Anyway, starting to feel more human (although this may have something to do with the constant supply of cold remedies) and have ventured back to my little space while Harrison is at nursery.

I made this one to enter:

Lawnscaping - polka dots (the background is embossed with dots, as are the flowers)
Lili of the valley monthly challenge - pink and white
613 Avenue create - anything goes
Addicted to stamps - make your mark

This is a Lili of the valley image, coloured with promarkers (ivory, vanilla, tan, sandstone, pale blossom, blossom, pastel pink, dusky pink, sorbet, cool grey 3 and 4).  it is on a spotty embossed 8 x 8 card.  layered with flowers, ribbon and diamante pins from my stash, and a tag with sentiment.  Finished with bling and glitter (as most of my cards are!) BTW I experimented around the edge of the die cut to get a matching finish.  Using a blender pen and soaking the edge, I then ran the blossom promarker around, and it has created a soft edge with no harsh lines - quite pleased with that one!!

Thanks so much for stopping by - please leave me a comment (so I know you've been).

ps - back to the desk for more creating I think...
