I hope you all had a good New Year's Eve and I wish you well for 2012. Today I have been to see my Granddaughter who is 1 today. I can't believe the last year has gone so quickly! It has certainly been a busy year for me especially in blog land. I have met so many lovely crafters through my blog that I just want to say a very big THANK YOU to all my visitors and of course my lovely followers from all over the world who leave me so many lovely comments. It is raining again here in Warrington so I have made a card to reflect what I hope will bring sunshine to each and everyone of you.
The card base is from Kanban. The square doilly I have used PanPastel Artist's pastels in yellow and red to get this lovely pale orange colour. I have added flowers from my stash and little gems around the edge of the doily. The image called Sunshine is from one of the SWALK collections which I bought from Crafter's Companion. I have coloured her in using a mixture of my watercolour pencils and Sakura glitter pens. I cut the image out using my Spellbinder scalloped square and then highlighted the edges to match the doilly. Again I have added little gems around the scallops. The swirl was white so I again used the Pan Pastel to make this match the topper and the doilly. I have added a few gems to the stem of the swirl. The sentiment says "with best wishes.
Thank you for stopping by today
