Delightful Thursday

Good morning from a lovely and sunny NW England today.  Its Thursday so that can only mean one thing - its time for Delightful Thursday at Digital Delights Blog. This is when the DT showcase some of the fabulous images Wendy has over at the Digital Delights Shop.  Here is my card:


Now I don't like snails, we have so many in our garden, but this is a real cutie and I decided she needed to be done in funky colours!  She is Forgetful Fran and comes with the sentiment and is available to purchase here. I coloured her with my Copics and added some Glossy Accents to her eyes.  The papers are by Nitwits with some Centura Pearl in the centre which has been embossed with a Crafter's Companion folder.  Dies for matting and layering are Cheery Lynn as are the ladybirds.  The sentiment is cut with a Justrite die and ribbon from my stash.

Here is another view:


Over at Delightful Challenges a new challenge has started with the theme Tickled Pink. The sponsor is The Cutting Cafe and the prize is 3 sets from their store for the lucky winner.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Penny's Paper Crafty - Anything Goes
Scapper's Delight - Anything Goes + Layer It Up
Whimsy - Tic Tac Toe (I used middle line: pink and green, die cut and birthday)
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Square Anything Goes
