New challenge Blog at Karleigh Sue

Karleigh Sue is a brand new monthly challenge blog with a talented Artist,and they are having a DT call.I have used her beautiful image "Sunday Afternoon" which you can buy from here.I coloured the image with promarkers and sat the image on a die cut frame which after I posted the pic thought it reminded me of the hanging chairs from the sixties-too late to make it look "hanging" lol,the beautiful watercolour look B.paper was a craft mag freebie,and i cut the butterfly out of the paper.

First of all I would like to say welcome to my new followers,and nearly a week since I blogged,not a good week life and family wise,some bad news on the horizon I think.
On the plus side had a good girly day in town with my grandaughters (soo hoping it's not the last one.)Ellie(7) and Holly-Ann(5)we went shopping then for something to eat then jewellry shopping-at Primark -a bag each which Ellie left on the bus!I put my foot down on Holly going in a nail bar to have her nails done!Ellie has just lost her third tooth and I made her a Paper pretties Tooth Fairy card and decorated the inside with a pocket and mini envelope to put her tooth in -and forgot to take a pic of inside!I coloured the image with promarkers,cardstock from Papermill Direct,B.paper/ribbon and dewdrops from stash,sentiment was computer generated.
