Snail Mail

Hello my lovelies how are you all? I'm running a wee bit late with my SC post today as I have a poorly daughter :0( Natalie became unwell last night & weve had a rough night with her. Its always awful when your kiddies are poorly isn't it :0(
Anyhoo's for todays card I've used one fo the super gorgeous new images that the lovely sweet Krista recently added to her the 'eck did I choose one you ask...........eeny meeny miney..............!!! Actually I narrowed it down to 2 as I still couldnt pick just one, so I coloured 2 up but will show the other one another time ;0)
I have used the new Marianne Design Creatable die 'Anja's Border LR0300', its lush I love it!! I added white gesso, pearl spots from my pearl pen & a gorgeous 'Purple flower' to the centre. The lace is from my stash.

The super gorgeous papers I've used are Pion Flower Frames 'Viola 6x6' I love the frame one, its perfect for inside. I will probably add a die or 2 once I decide if I like the card enough to send to someone.......

The gorgeous image is 'Snail Mail', she's got such a sweet face hasn't she. I coloured her with copics & fussy cut her out. My printer has decided to print yellow lines around the images..........yep not impressed after trying for a week to get rid of them hubster brought me a new printer yesterday. Hopefully he's setting it up soon lol.
Colours I used are..............
E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 - Skin
E37, E35, E33, E30 - Hair
V99, V95, V93, V91, V000 - Dress, Bow & Sock Stripes
C5, C3, C1, C00 - Dress, Sock Stripes, Boots & Envelope
The banner is La La Land Crafts 'Heart Banner' & I've layered it up with some scraps of Maja Design paper. The butterfly is a Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Swirly Butterfly', this has been neglected for so long poor thing :0(  The flowers are all from LLC & I've added Magnolia's 'Sprawling Ferns' to them, I love these as you may have gathered lol. I've also added my favourite fence Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Lovely Fence'

Well I think thats it for me, but if you havn't seen the new images that Krista recently added to her store maybe if you were abducted by aliens which is why you missed them..then go have a look but be warned there may be lots of oohhhing & aahhing coming from your wee voice box ;0)

Thank you so much for stopping by & for all your lovely comments. Dont forget my candy is still running. Link is at the top of the sidebar ;0)

Tatty bye, big hugs to you all
