Shey - Crafts & Me Challenges

Good morning everyone. Well my kiddies are back at school today :0( so everything is getting back to normal altho I still have my eldest Ben at home cus he has took a weeks holiday from work, altho he is sitting with his Ipad glued to his hand lol.
Anyway onto this weeks challenge over at Crafts & Me it is time for a new challenge, thank you to everyone who joined our last challenge. This week our challenge is
Paper Tearing...
You can tear it a little or go wild & tear it lots. Whiff Of Joy are sponsoring us for this challenge & they are offering 1 of their new January release stamps to the winner.

This is 'Nora Blowing Kisses' aint she just the be honest I'm more of an Henry fan, hubby got me a few WOJ stamps for crimbo from Crafts & Me which I was quite surprised about & another Henry was in there so watch out for him this week lol.
Here is my card for the Tearing challenge & I've used another digi image that were released just before crimbo.

This is the pretty 'Shey' which you can get here I love digi stamps the sheer fact you can have them any size you want is just fab. 'Shey' has been coloured with Copics with a sprinkling of glitter on her fur around her clothes. She was soooo easy to colour.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts & have also had that sprinkling of glitter. I cant remember where the leaves are originally from I forgot I had them its only cus I went into my green flower jar that I found them. Yes I'm a very organised person lol, everything is labelled & stored in tubs or jars or drawers & boxes lol.

The scrolls I used a scroll die from a Marianne set, the scroll is actually comes with the frame I used in an earlier project. Yes it also got attacked by glitter lol. My sewing machine also made an appearance altho we did have a few words with each other....I got very stressed cus things kept happening it was fine at first then it all went to pot when the thread ran out. Anyway it was not the machines fault it was actually the poppy cotton I replaced it with....yes appologies were made, I've promised to use him more!!

The sentiment is from here & it comes in a set of 9 sentiments which are cushion mounted & come in a cd case so mine are slotted in with my magnolia's cus they all get stored in cases.
The paper is 'Annalee' Prima & is from here.
I distressed the edges with my scissors as I wanted little tears & a rougher edge than what you can get with the tool. I also inked the edges with 2 distress inks, 'Tea Dye' & 'Bundled Sage'.
The card layer the image is on & the sentiment have both been ripped, altho I did cheat & use my Wescot tearing ruler which has been neglected for months lol. The gems are from my stash.
Well that is it from me for now but do pop over & see the fabulous creations my other teamies have done.
Hope to see your fabulous creations in our challenge, until then TTFN.
Thank you sooo much for stopping by always appreciated very much
