Coffee To Go with Willow......I'm a poet & didnt know it lol....

Good evening my lovely jubbly friends how are you all? Well my kiddo's go back to school tomorrow so me is not happy :0( Still I cant grumble cus apart from 1 day of rain we've had the most glorious 2 weeks worth of weather.....I bet this is our summer & when its the 6 weeks hols we will have nowt but rain......I shouldn't jinx it really should I!!! We are gonna have sun sun sun......blue blue skies & rain at night to keep our gardens purdy.....lol.... yeah the sun has bleached my wee ickle brain.....
Anyhoo onto my card which is rather a simple one.....well simple for me cus remember I like my foofy stuff & lots of foofiness at that....
I dont think I've done a card with this lady on before but I found her in a box of coloured images.....

I've followed a fabby sketch & used this pretty lady which is 'Willow with Coffe To Go' & she is from WOJ & hubby got me her from here with a load of others last year....yes I will get them all inked eventually.....these things take time its no good rushing it rofl ssshhh its my new excuse he hee.

The flower is crochet by ickle old me & I plonked a little black rose in the centre.

Gingham & pearl button from stash & card candy from Crafty Emma's Store

Willow was coloured with copics not got the colours tho as I did her a bit ago. Her dress shoes & bag have been paper pieced & her sunglasses have had glossy accents on. Her pearl bracelets I did with a gold gel pen.

Paper is called 'Perfect Papers' & they are a digital download from here. I've used these papers on a few cards from this set it really is a gorgeous set of papers.
Well thats it from me my lovelies its been one of those busy days so I'm gonna try catch up on some blogging before bed......fingers crossed.
Thank you sooooo much for stopping by I appreciate every single one of you. Welcome to my new followers & thank you soooo much for being here.

Tatty bye I'm sending big mahoosive squishy hugs to each of ya mmwah.

Vicky, thought I'd have a quick look on some blogs now everyone is in bed. Well I can see two pictures of your card - all the rest are crosses. Just wish I knew whether it's Blogger or Virgin at fault as it's driving me mad!!! Thankfully I can see a whole picture and the card is gorgeous. What a lovely image. I like the WOJ but only have a couple. She's certainly got a figure I'd love!!! Hope the house isn't too quiet tomorrow. My youngest went back to school today. I'm back to work tomorrow. I like routine and even though I can only work a small amount of hours I feel like I am doing something. Just hope I feel better and what to make cards as I've got four commissioned cards to make - buses, gardening, rabbits and West Ham Football Club - why couldn't it be Sweet Pea Stamps or Crafty Purple Frog images? I just have to keep implanted in my head the charities I am helping. Sleep tight and I hope your bad bout is over with and you get some answers very very soon, Kym xxx

First of all hunni I am so sorry for being a bad blogger and not commenting on all your cards lately.
I am still back and forth to the hospital two hours away from me at the moment as my Dad was rushed in hospital Easter Sunday from his nursing home. Yesterday they told me to get there quick as he wasn't expected to live. He was on alot of oxygen and was asleep and thankfully by the time I got there his stats had settled down. Today I have rang and he is alot better but still hasn't recognised anyone for years. I don't think he wants to live without my Mum and he still keeps asking where she is.

Your card today is real cool and I love your layout.
Hugs
Cathy
