Ladybird Rose

Good Afternoon,

My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Welcome to  Lyn who has just become a follower.

I am sorry to see that somehow I have lost two of my followers, for what
reason I don't know but should you wish to return I would welcome it.

I don't know if I am following you all or not, if not them would you please
let me know, it's unfair that you should take the time to follow my blog
if I do not extent the courtesy to follow you back.  If this is the case.
then please except my apologies.

Thank you for your comments on Friday regarding this issue with mum's
new bathroom sink and I can tell you after me being there from 7.30am till
8.30pm everything is fine.  The reason being the plumber should have been
there at 8.30am but phoned to tell me he would be late due to family 
problems.  He arrived at 12.30pm and I must say he never stopped 
until the job was finished and even helped me clean up. So I cannot
fault his on his work in any way, it was just the fact that my whole day
was up the creak but these things have to be done.  All that needs doing
is sorting out the bathroom carpet  as mum now wants a new one. So
hubby will be doing that in about 2 weeks as next week we are going
to a wedding.

Well I think i have bored you enough, so let's get onto today's card.
I have taken one of the images from the Octavia cd from
Polkadoodles and I hope you like.


1. Card size is 8 x 8 and I have matted it with paper I designed
in MCS.

2. The image was printed onto super smooth  card and I have
coloured her with Copic and then used aglitter gel pen for
her wings,  Pan Pastels were then used  around the image
 to soften.

3. I die cut using a plain oval die and then adhered lace
around it before adhering to the card using foam pads.

3. Organza ribbon was then used along the side and top
edges and I created tails to finish and secured them 
with a gem.

To complete I added three gems down the side  and the sentiment.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit and my little essay Ha!ha!

I will be back tomorrow, hope you will 

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
