My Crafty Heart DT Card

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Sorry I've been missing in action I've been ill with Pancreatitis again so barely even been on my laptop, so I'm sorry if I'm late back replying to emails I will catch up today. I'm also looking after payton this weekend as Ben & Megan are moving to a new house thats 3 mins walking distance from us so they are closer. So while they decorate ready to move in on tuesday we are having Payton.........ok so I told them I was well ssshhhhh dont tell them ok!!

Anyhoos I'm here today with My Crafty Heart DT Card & I've coloured a Sugar Nellie image, I know I havnt done one for so long, this I coloured in a couple of days after release.
Yes I got a couple of these new adorable's which are so rightly named dont you think? She is called 'Sophia' & of course is a digi image from Funky Kits.

The papers are the gorgeous MME 'Paris & Co', I still love this pad, although it is nerly all gone :0(

I've used Blue 'Serenade' flowers & 2 'Silentium' flowers. I added 'Anja Leaves' die, 'Anja Corner' die & 'Vintage Birdcage' die & I added a 'Songbird' Tile on the top.

I coloured the beautiful image with copics & prisma pencils, although these are easier to colour I end up working harder to add my own shading...........yea they dont get much weirder than me ;0)
I also added 2 small 'Pearls' to her hair.

I added 'Pearls' to the corners of the card as well. The raffia trim along the middle is from my stash, I cant remember where I originally got it.

Ingredients used...........
MME 'Paris & Co' papers 
Prima 'Serenade' blue flowers
Prima 'Silentium Tea Thyme' flowers
Melissa Frances Pearls
Marianne Creatables 'Anja Levaes' die
Marianne Creatables 'Anja Corner' die
Memory Box 'Vintage Birdcage' die
Prima 'Songbird' tiles
All the above ingredients are of course from My Crafty Heart.

I made the card with A4 dark brown card to help set off the kraft card that I used for matting.

Pop on over to Teresa's store she has a fab sale on & some new lovely MB dies due in very soon :0)

Okie dokie my lovelies I'm gonna have a bloggy hobble along......cant really hop lol, & come visit you all while my darling grandaughter is asleep. She fell asleep on her grandad bless her.

Thank you for stopping by & also a big HUGE welcome to my new followers I so appreciate you been here & I hope you like what you see mmwah.
Tatty bye xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
