Delightful Thursday

Good morning hope you are all well and if not wishing you a speedy recovery.  I have had two poor nights of sleep but managed to sleep well last night. What a relief because yesterday I certainly felt like a zombie!

Today is Delightful Thursday over on the Digital Delights Blog and the DT showcase some of Wendy's fabulous images.  Here is my card:



Now for some reason the photos make the border look uneven but IRL they aren't it must have been the angle I took them at!  Anyway, I have used Alien Andy available here and coloured him with my Copics adding some touches of Stickles and Glossy Accents.  The sentiment comes from the Keeping in Touch Sentiment Set available here and I printed both directly onto the card for a fairly CAS look. The starry paper is from The Sweet Shoppe called Schooltime. I used Dienamics Star dies and Cheery Lynn Tiny Expandable Borders.


Head over to the Digital Delights Blog for lots of inspiration from the amazing Design Team.  Don't forget Delightful Challenges have a new challenge starting today and the theme this week is All Fall Down (Fall Colours).

Challenges I would like to enter:

Wonderful Wednesday - Anything Goes
Cuttlebug Mania - Anything Die Cut
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Anything Goes with Shades of Blue
