YAYYYYY....finally a card.......

Good evening all my lovely friends & welcome to my recent new followers...a huge thank you for following me I really appreciate & I hope you like what you see.
1st of all I would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone for your lovely comments & e-mails regarding Natalie she is a lot better tonight her fits are really bad as she doesn't get oxygen when she is fitting & for a long time afterwards her sats stay low her lips will remain blue & her finger nails will remain blue which is 1 of the signs of low oxygen level. Luckily we know now how to deal with it all now so we dont call anambulance unless we know we she is in need of oxygen urgently or we cant get her out of a fit. These things are sent to try us as they say lol. Anyway tonight I've finally had time to make a card it seems ages since I've made 1 lol, I know it isn't but this last 3 days have been long days. We have just settled her down so hopefully she will go sleep within the next hour.....I'm crossing fingers & toes here lol.
Anyway onto my quickie card cus I also got stuck into got to dance, I dont watch much tv so when there are programs I like I do try to watch them & I'm a sucker for dancing lol. Anyway tonights card is to fit a few challenges, 1 of them being a colour challenge & this colour I've never done before, eeks lol. I've also used a new stamp which hubby got me a few weeks ago.

Yes I've used 1 of my beloved Sweet Pea stamps this is 'Scorpio' by Caron Vinson & Craig got it from here plate 77.....I've started to get the plates as you save money & I'm all for saving pennies....well it can buy more stamps!!!

This is not actually the image I managed to colour last night, I'm still deciding whether I like what I've done with the other 1 lol. This little beauty got done whilst simpsons was on lol. She has been coloured with Copics & Prisma pencils....her skin & hair with copics & her clothes & wings with pencil. I coloured the scorpio with gold gel pan same as her bits of jewellery. I also added little highlights to her hair with a white gel pen. Her wings had Yellow stickles added & the scorpio had diamond dust stickles added....she deserves that bit of bling.

The gardenia Ivory flower is from Wild Orchid, I love these flowers this one is a large one but the smaller ones are just as gorgeous. I spritzed it with Gold Glimmer Mist from Crafts & Me & sprinkled a bit of diamond dust over the top.

The papers are Websters Pages. The sentiment 'Fantasy the new Reality' is computer generated, I love this sentiment & I think its perfect for a lot of my stamps especially sweet pea ones & Crafts & Me stamps. The gem corner scrolly thingy I got for crimbo. The ribbon is from my stash, forgot I had this so its nice to finally use it lol. The gems are also from my stash. The metal corner I got off Ebay last year.

Well I think thats about it.....oh no wait I have a bit of news to tell you so come here.... Its Lynettes birthday this week over at Sweet Pea Stamps so she has been having a candy give away all week.....well guess who won 10 stamps......yes me isn't that just fan-blinking-kiss-me-on-the-cheek-tastic woo hooo!!!
Huge thanks to Lynette once again mmwah.
Well I've babbled on for long enough noo I will let you peeps go. Hope you have all had a fabberooney weekend & I hope you all have an even better week. Take care everyone & keep on smiling.
Thankyou all soooo much for stopping by I have caught up with half but I promise to have caught up with the rest by tomorrow. I did most of my commenting before I even thought of making a card.
Anyway hope you can pop back tomorrow as I have a Crafts & Me new release stamp to show you which I'm sure you will love.
Tatty bye peeps loves ya 'al mmwah
Challenges I'm Entering.....

You sound like a very high energy person lol.
Gorgeous card you made. Beautiful colours and all the bling.
Glad your little one is ok..........Gosh they are a worry, and the bad news is it never goes away as long as they are your kids, but we wouldnt have it any other way we are Mums.

Hi Vicky!
I love your card! Gorgeous colour. So nice with all the bling and that metal-corner is gorgeous. As usual your colouring is fantabulous!!!! love it! So sorry to hear about your daughter. I wasn`t aware of her fits. Hope she is doing better. I can`t imagine how scary it must have been. Is this something that can be dealt with or will she suffer from it for the rest of her life?
Also congrats with your winnings. It is allways nice with some new stuff. Big hug to you...Mona
