Using up bits and pieces.........

Those of you with eagle eyes may recognise this little lady - she was an image I coloured on one of my Promarker videos HERE - as I was clearing up in the USA, I found her all forlorn in a folder so it was high time she made it onto a card.
The papers are all by Heidi Swapp, and I covered a shaped edge card from Craftwork Cards - the tiny sentiment label is by them as well. The label die is by Nellie Snellen, and I added some stitching in pale pink to the layers


I found these jewelled thingies on sale in Michaels, I had no idea what I would do with them, but they make a pretty flower center don't they?
Letraset are having a great competition to celebrate having 1,000 followers on Facebook. Go HERE for the details

I have been battling with a great backlog of blogging, I know some of you have given me blog awards, please don't think I am being rude, I just haven't had a minute spare really, and to cap it all I have the dreaded bug that I seem to pick up so often after a long-haul flight, and have been feeling really quite lousy for a couple of days. I just knew my instincts were right and that I had every reason to glare at that chap on the plane who was snuffling and coughing for seven long hours. No amount of that spray stuff that is supposed to protect you would work against Mr Superbug himself in seat 10A. Hey ho, the joys of living the high life.......

This has made a great card, covering the card completing in the patterned papers looks amazing.
Why is it that planes seem to hang on to germs so well, I am sure they just go round and round the air conditioning and heating. I have never been on a long haul flight without being ill within a week afterwards. I hope you feel better soon.
