Delightful Thursday

Good morning to you all . Hope you are safe and well today.  We had severe winds and lashing rain all night.  The wind started about 7 last night, we were sat with candles and torches at the ready but luckily did not need them.  I haven't been out yet but can only see one fence panel down so we were very lucky, when I think of the poor people down South who have had their homes flooded for weeks on end a bit of storm damage is nothing.

Today sees another Delightful Thursday over at the Digital Delights Blog when the DT get to showcase some of the fabulous images Wendy has over at the Digital Delights Store. Here is my card:

I have used Luvvy Bear With Balloons available here and Cupid's Quotes Sentiments Set available here. I coloured him with my Copics and he has been cut out with Dienamics Stitched Circle Stax. The papers are digital Sara Schmutz Strawberry Patch from the Sweet Shoppe.  The balloon die is from Marianne and I used a Go Kreate die for the tag.  Ribbon, twine and heart pearl are all from my stash.  Here is another view:

Please go have a look at Digital Delights blog and see the rest of the DT work they are so talented and have made some fabulous creations.  Over at Delightful Challenge today sees the start of a new challenge and the theme this week is Love Notes (Add a Heart, Music or Letters) sponsored by Sweet Stamps with a $10 voucher.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Crafting For All Seasons - Show us some Romance
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Hearts
Fab 'N Funky - Love
Cuttlebug Mania - Touch of Red
Inky Chicks - Cute Animal

Thank you so much for looking today, stay safe and take care xx

Hi Susan
Yes that storm was scarey, it brought most of our ridge tiles off, but at least we do not have the floods.
Such a brilliant image on your card and the colours are so bright and cheerful.
Hope you have a good weekend.
Suzie xx

Aww this is so sweet Susan… such a cute image and your colouring is beautiful… I love how you've mirrored the balloons with your embellishments… they look fab… gorgeous papers too!
it was awful storm last night wasn't it… we had candles and oil lamps at the ready but thankfully we didn't need them… part of our fence blew off… but we were lucky… could have been so much worse.
Take care and stay safe and warm!
Big hugs
Sue xx
