Wee Emily

twice my post has disappeared - probably just as well as I was having a right old moan about it - technology that is and the stresses of life that are getting to me again just now.  So perhaps I'd best not go back there and keep the spiel short and sweet.

My image is one of Sylvia's Wee Stamps digi designs called Emily, also available in rubber from Whimsy Stamps.  I've coloured her with my Copic pens and added a touch of sparkle around the edge of the die cut image.  I've also added sparkle with the Marianne Design snowflake card, but am slightly disappointed that it's ivory rather than snow white although in the picture it's looking brighter so not so bad!  Here's the card:

My base is a scallop square I've turned to make a tent fold and the papers are old K&Co from my stash.  I rounded the corners and added some stitching with a white marker - that's also more ivory so ties in with the sparkly card.  The die cut elements are all by Marianne Design and I've finished off with the stamped bunting, also from MD, a double bow and the pearls I've coloured with Copic RV69 to match.  No flowers on this one as I just couldn't make any that matched in with the image and that I liked, and I wanted to keep the card fairly flat for posting.

So, here's the Marianne Design die list for you:
buttons from LR0188
butterflies from LR0261
leaf spray from LR0150
lace edge CR1250

The Moving Along With The Times blog are celebrating their birthday with bunting and buttons, hence the embellishments on the card for them.  At both Crafty Catz and Papertake Weekly it's an anything goes week, Allsorts are looking for summer girls, and the Fussy and Fancy Friday girls are looking for summertime creations too.

Due to technology problems with internet and my pc, along with the stresses of life here just for the moment, I'm not getting around to commenting on blogs very much - I am sorry.  I do appreciate your visits, and doubly so the kind friends who leave me a comment as reading them does cheer me up, so thank you all.
