Gypsy Dancer - Saturated Canary...............

Howdy doody everyone, how are you all? I hope the weather is not too bad where ever you are here in the North its really bad........I think Scotland are getting it even worse bless them. The winds are so bad I usually go along a dual carriage way to pick my son up from school cus its about 5 miles away, however I went the other way to avoid it as the winds were really bad on the van with it being higher.

Well I've not been around much today on the internet had a few apointments & probs with internet AGAIN!! So we have gone with a new provider today but it will take 11 days before we go live with them, so we have to put up with the rubbish we have til then grrrrrrrrrrr........
Anyway I made a card the other day so I thought I would show it to you as I've not done any crafting today but I got a few made earlier this week.............
I have another image from Saturated Canary

Sorry about the piccy......it just seems bit blur will try take again tomorrow.
The gorgeous image is 'Gypsy Dancer' isn't her hair fabulous & those that know me know that I luuurrrvve hair...........so this I loved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Papers are from Nitwits' Heavenly Too' & all the edges have been inked with Vintage Photo & matted onto kraft card.
I used MS punch for the edge of the kraft card & inked the edge.

Cork tiles I made myself

She has of course been coloured with Copics but I cant remember which ones I know for her hair I think I used E18 E15 E11
skin - E21 E00 E000 R11
I used quite a few different blues on the dress

Flowers are from Crafty Emma's Store & ribbon, lace, pearls & the thingy's coming out the flowers are all from my stash.

Well its only took me an hour to do this post.........not bad lol.........altho I have tried 3 times tonight to do it.

Will catch up with you all real soon thank you soooooooo much for popping by it means the world to me.
Huge huggles to you all mmwah xoxoxox

Another gorgeous card Vicky. I love all the layers. I bet you are so ready for your grand baby to get here. I hope you are doing well and I hope you are ready for Christmas. I am trying. To be honest I will be glad when the kids get out for Christmas break so I'm not overwhelmed with homework. It has taken away a lot of my craft time. Well to be honest almost all of it.
Hugs:)

Hello Vicky!!! It's been a little while since I popped by, why, I don't know!? I definately won't be leaving it as long next time ;) I adore this card, the papers and colours are perfect, and the image and colouring, well what can I say... perfect! I heard that the winds etc were bad up in your neck of the woods, I hate wind cos it's so devastating and dangerous! Take care on the school run, I know the dual carriage way you mean ;) Good luck with your internet, we had problems in Nov too, they even cut my phone off for 2 weeks! Hugs, Shelly x
