A card from me at long last..


Hi Girls

Well...  I'm back - at least for a while.... I've had a pretty awful virus type thing that has really washed me out... I have absolutely zero energy, and didn't go over the doorstep for nearly two weeks.... all I could do was try to rest on the settee and stay cool...  or on some days, try to stay warm with a fleece over me!  So much for the hot weather!  Anyway - it's easing now, but has left me really shakey - a feeling I don't like at all!

Onto nicer things.... it's In The Pink time again.... and this time the challenge theme is HOT PINK!  I tried to find some photo inspiration to help here... and this is what I came up with:


Don't you just love these fab vibrant shades?

Anyway...my card...  I used a lovely little LOTV image called 'Best Dress'...  coloured with Copics and Promarkers, then I used a rectangle Spellbinders die.  Glitter finished off her dress and gift...  and then a bit of ribbon to match the paper I'd used (sorry, I have no name for the paper!)

It's a relatively simple one for me.... as it was the first time back in the craft room for two whole weeks - and I just didn't have a lot of energy.  Hope you like - and that it'll inspire you to join us at In The Pink.

Big Hugs
