Friendship Warms The Heart

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Sorry I've been missing in action, I've not been blogging or crafting at all, this infection really hit me hard & its still not gone so I'm back at the docs this week.

Anyway its my busy week DT wise so I thought I would make a quickie card today to post on my blog to get me in the swing lol. Now this image I brought when they were released & she has been coloured for ages, she really has. Of course those that know me will know the things I love to colour the most is face & hair so these I kinda squeeked & squealed when I saw them & HAD to get them......then forget about them lol.

 I've kept the card quite simple, for me anyway lol. I didnt want to lose this gorgeous image in all my usual foofiness lol.

I've added a gorgeous Prima Brown Fabric Leaf & a flower from Prima 'Londonerry-Coventry Rose' collection. 
I also added Glossy Accents to her eyes, you cant see it very well unfortunately.

The papers are MME 'Paris & Co' I love the colours in this pad. I've inked the edges & matted onto dark brown card.

The image is from Make It Crafty & she is called 'Ashlyn' from the Portrait Collection. I got the entire set but you can buy them separately. I coloured her with Copics & added 2 small
 Melissa Frances pearls to her ears for earrings.

The tag I made myself then added small piece of seam binding & a sentiment from my wood block stamps. Seam binding from my stash.

Paper, pearls, fabric leaf, Glossy Accents & flower are all from My Crafty Heart, pop on over Teresa has added lots more fabulous items to her store.

Thats it for me I have no idea if this will fit into any challenges, I've not had time to look. I will catch up with you all later. Thank you so much for stopping by mmwah loves yas xoxoxox
