Just Because

Wow I should say good morning really lol, hubby was watching the most boring film on the telly so I took myself off to make a card, that was several hours ago and now I am finished, It was lovely to sit there and not know what I was going to make and to have no time restraints. This is what I came up with:-I have seen so many cards whilst blog hopping where swirls have been stamped to the edges of images and die cuts and I love it, so I had a rummage as you do and found I had a set of swirls yay, so I used those in a mix of brown and pink around the edge of the image, I then inked the image as I usualy would. I coloured Daisy with promarkers, my gosh is she just not a doll! so beautiful! I replaced the flower she was holding with a prima.The first layer of paper to the card is a basic grey one, the browny coloured one is one from my stash, I used some I'm not sure what you call it, corrugated? card and tore the edges, to this I added 2 ribbons, I added some swirls popping out from different bits and more primas, the dotty flower is from joanna sheen. A few gems and brads and finished, the greeting is from a hotp kit.

I am quite pleased with it, I hope you like. Thanks for Looking.x

Not much on saturdays agenda,my daughter well and truly has a frog stuck in her throat, and keeps complaining yet she wont rest her voice :O( my son has got that delightful cough back, and me and hubby have runny noses and headaches, I think I shall plough on through I dont want to be down and out with it! so hopefully they are all going to curl up on the sofa and I can do some cards, not much point going anywhere when they are like this.
