Hello there hope you had a lovely weekend.  I was lucky enough to be asked to be a Guest Designer for TokBobok and was given one of their new images to work with.  The challenge is Monochromatic and here is my card:

I have colourd the image with my Copics and cut her out using Dienamics Pierced Circle Stax. The balloons have been paper pieced.  The mat is a Spellbinders and so is the border.  The balloons are a Lil' Inker die and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

Here is another view:

A big thank you to TokBobok for having me as Guest Designer and such a fun image to work with!

Sorry if I have bot been round to see you yet. I am having serious problems with my PC going slow!  Dave is buying me a new Mac for my birthday (lucky me) and I am trying to sort everything out to transfer. This is a real nightmare if you are not very computer savvy and this PC is a Sony Vaio so it will be a whole new ballgame for me!

Thank you so much for visiting me I really appreciate it, take care xx



Gorgeous card Susan love the image beautiful colour's and design and congratulations on your GDT too
Hugs Dianne xx :)

Hi Suzie,

Stunning card, love the image. Great use of colour and dies.

Good luck with getting a Mac, I have not heard many good things about Macs over PC's but that does not mean it's not going to be good, hopefully you will get everything transferred okay, will things off a PC go onto a Mac?

Take care
Love & Hugs
