Pretty in Lilac

Good morning everyone and hope you are alright on this rainy morning.  We just had a little bit of snow but it didn't stick and now we are back to our usual rain rain rain!! I'd like to give a big welcome to my latest followers:  Susan, Kym and Angie -welcome ladies and a big thank you for joining me.  I am now past 300 followers - wow I think I need to sort some candy out!!

I had a lovely weekend but no crafting so I have a card today that I made a couple of weeks ago:

I have used a Bildmalarna image and lovely lilac! I have coloured her with Copics but her hair is a bit brassy I think! The papers are First Edition.  I cut the image out with Floral Ovals by Spellbinders.  The flower is a Dienamics die and the leaves are a Marianne die.  The sentiment is Hero Arts and I have used Spellbinders dies to cut and mat it as Christine showed on her blog Hope and Chances.  The corner die is a Whimsy and I have used an EK success punch for the border.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Bildmalarna Challenge - Anything Goes
Allsorts Challenge - Dies and Punches
Totally Gorjuss - Spots
Delicious Doodles - Anything Goes using Favourite Colours (Lilac)
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything Goes
Whoopsi Daisy - Monochrome
Creative Creations Challenge - Anything Goes

Well I am locking myself up in my craft room ALL day today!  I am going to make some cards and  carry on with my major tidy up.  My DH made some more shelving for me as part of my Christmas present and I ordered a double unit from Storage 4 Crafts which came last week so I am trying to get everything sorted! I am sick of only having about 6 square inches of free space to craft on and that is sometimes on a chair lol!!

Thanks for looking today I love to see you all, have a great day wherever you are! Take care xx
