I Know You're There.................

Good evening my lovely friends hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Apart from extreme pain with my kidney I had a fabulous one I have the most wonderful kids & hubby wouldn't let me even make a cuppa all day & he cooked us Swiss Steak for tea.....oooohhh it was yum!!!
Anyway I've managed to make a quickish card tonight thanks to a fab sketch & a fam image & then to top it off I've gone my fave theme....

Yes mono with a splash of red I just love this look. The image is actually a digi image by Leanne Ellis which you can get here. I'm having a huge sort out of all my rubber stamps its took me 4 hours just to do my Sugar Nellies......I got fed up then onto my Hanglars tomorrow....

She is coloured with Copics & I've basically used
C0 C1 C3 C5 C7
W0 W2 W3 W5 W7...... Usually I will either go cool or warm but I like the look of mixing them.

Inside is decorated to compliment the front of course.
Papers are 8x8 'Paris Nights' by G.C.D which are from Crafty Emma's as is the stamens & the scalloped card..
The lace & the red & black roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Black, red & white card are from my stash also the metal corner & the black flower buds.
The wavy edge on the paper & card was done with my CC paper cutter. Not sure where the sentiment is from but I will check I do know its a digi download that I printed off then inked the edge with weathered wood & vintage photo distress ink.

Well thats it from me I'm off to come & see as many of you as I can.
Thank you sooooo much for all your lovely comments you really do make me smile mmwah. Can I also welcome all of my new followers, sending each of you huge hugs & thank you for following me you rock!!!
Challenges I'm Entering......

Hi sweetie. Sorry you have been in pain, I don't know how you cope with everything. How is Nat now? I hope her scratches are healing and it didn't frighten her too much. Your card is gorgeous yet again and it would take me days to try and produce something like this. Note the word TRY!!!! Everything goes together perfectly.
