A Card at Last


It seems like I have been absent for ages I have so missed Blogging and card making these last 3 weeks. I contracted a really bad chest infection, it really affected my breathing and I just couldn't manage to shake it off, anyway I am feeling so much better now and am looking forward to an evening of blog hopping to see all the great creations that have been posted since my enforced absence.

I hope you all had a brilliant Christmas thank you for all your lovely Christmas Greetings and messages, I had 2 days with all the family (15 of them) and couldn't have had a more fantastic time.

Now for today's card I trawled around for a challenge this morning and fell in love with the fabulous sketch on The Sugar Bowl, and it also gave me an excuse (if one was needed) to use this fabulous Sugar Nellie stamp which was a present from my very dear friend Donalda.



The papers are by Magnolia, and the image has been coloured to match with Copics and Prisma Pencils, the flowers are as usual from Wild Orchid Crafts and have been sprayed with Snow Angel Glimmer Mist, the Pearls and Hat Pins are all from The Hobby House.



Hope to have another card tomorrow now I am back in the swing. Have a good evening

Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx
