zzzz a long week!

Good very early morning!

Firstly I have to apologise for the lack of blogging this week, I haven't had much craft time as I've had to work nights, and the change of shift has upset my body clock.. zzzzzz.  That should now be over with so I can happily return to my sanctuary that is the craft room!

I've made two cards again to enter in several different challenges.

This one is to enter into
Papertake weekly its a sketch this week - ladies I've rotated and added an extra layer - as it was looking a little lost... hope this is ok!
Glitter n sparkle - use leaves - on my flowers at the bottom.
avenue create 613 - anything goes
I love promarkers - anything goes
Cutie pie - bingo - i used (on the diagonal line) Glitter, Ribbon and Flowers)

I used a digi image from 'all dressed up' and coloured the girls to match the patterned backing paper which was from first edition paper pack called 'Isobelle'.  i used a die cut heart border and some ribbon behind, and some vintage lace across the horizontal.  all finished off with flowers and oodles of glitter.

the next card I want to enter into

Sketch and stash  - challenge 124
Creative inspirations - Bingo - i used a stamped image, ribbon, frantage. (i hope digi stamp counts!)

This is using a stamp fairy image, coloured in promarkers and glittered.  using ribbon, lace and a tag.  the presents are a tim holtz die called presents and bows.  Then scattered all around in blue aqua frantage

thanks for stopping by - and welcome to the new followers, it is very much appreciated, as are all the comments from the all the people who stop by to say hello!

I'll try not to leave it so long next week!

Love Rachael
