Taking a Nap.................

Oh I wish.  Yes the first day of my week off, and I did not get as much snooze time as I had hoped.  I finished off a couple of DT cards and then started creating this little number.  
First thing this morning had to make a dash to the local hoover repair shop to pick up some new wheels.  Nope they are not alloys, but could be classed as powder coated wheel trims lol :)  My very old and very trusty hoover has had a face lift or as my son would say it has been pimped........ and it is back to it's old self, which meant I could actually hoover the lounge carpet and pick up all those lovely hairs left by my lovely dog Star.  The carpet is back to blue again.

After the hoover shop I popped to the local department store, picked up some lovely lace and a few more flowers and then home to play.

In a moment or two (when I have posted this) I will be attacking the next pile of ironing.  It is going down slowly but to slowly for my liking.  

So this card has been created for a little girls birthday that is coming up very soon.  She is a very special little girl and I hope that this card is a very special card for her.  

I chose to use one of my Penny Black images this one is called Nap Time and I used some Basic Grey papers called the Porcelain stack which is a 6 x 6 pad. The Penny Black challenge has a sketch for us this week by the very talented Janneke
This card also meets the challenge for Bunny Zoe Crafts - Nice and Girly and Crafty Sentiments who want to see Pink, Black and White.

So here is the card
it is made with lots of distressed edges and glitter, for that very special look.  The flowers are from Hobby Craft as are the leaves.  I curled the leaf stems to peak through at the bottom of the larger flower. I added diamond stickles to the flower edges too.  The lace from the local department store and the ribbon from Grimsby Crafts.

Here is a close up of the copic coloured image
 I hope she will like it and that it makes her feel special.
I would like to welcome Emma and Susan to my little section of blog land and would like to say a big thank you to all those lovely people that visit me and make my day by leaving such inspiring comments, love every one of them.

Well off to hit the ironing, so hopefully will be posting tomorrow after my holiday time crafting

Hugs and Happy Crafting to you all
