A little bit different ............

I'm beginning to worry that perhaps cute little girl stamps are not for me, as the last few cards have been animals or creatures!!! Whoops, had better get my act together and get them inked!!! At the moment I need something that I can lose myself in so the more challenging the better!! Anyhow I coloured up this image months ago and as I have orders from Jenny to get them made into cards I thought I better had!! It took me all day today to put this together as I had nothing to go with it, so totally out of my comfort zone I created my own paper. Anyway not sure I like the result but Hey Ho it's a card!! I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Anything goes
Sweet Sketch Wednesday (still my favourite challenge, thank you ladies for giving me inspiration)
Paper Play Challenge - Sparkle Galore
Crafty Creations Challenge - May flowers

I have used Michele Marsdens Oriental Stamps set for the image and paper
Coloured with Copic Sketch and Ciao
Nestibilities and swirl Cuttlebug folder

Martha Stewart Daisy Punch

Wild Orchid craft flowers

Diamond Stickles
Glamour Dust
Glossy Accents
Pearls, Ribbon and Card from Stash

Hope you like it

With Love ................

Well, it's not quite a month since my last post and I haven't managed Jenny's challenge either, sorry!!! I do think I am getting better, you lot might not think so but I am trying honest!! I have a few health issues at the mo, which explains my constant fatigue etc but I won't bore you with that. This weekend just gone was a rare occasion for Neil and I, we actually had a weekend in London, I had managed to get tickets to see Roger Walters perform The Wall at the O2. amazing or what!! We were 4 rows from the front, so spoilt, and such a fantastic experience. If there are any Pink Floyd fans reading this, we both thoroughly recommend going to see it if you get the chance. Anyway onto my card, I am entering this into the following challenges if I am in time!!!

High Hopes Challenge - Anything goes
