Delightful Thursday

A big good morning to you all!  We had a fabulous time in the Isle of Wight the weather was beautiful it was like being on the Costa del Sol. I was even swimming in the sea with Harrison - he loves the water and little Rafe was in there too,  even little Rowan got his feet wet!  Its amazing the difference good weather makes, if we could be sure of good weather we would not feel the need to go away like we do as there are such beautiful places here.

Anyway its Thursday and that means its time for another Delightful Thursday at Digital Delights Blog. Here is my card:

I have used the super cute Loving Cherub image which is available on DVD IV here and great value as you get over 90 images!  She has been coloured with my Copics, chalk and some Stardust Stickles on the cloud.  The papers are Fine Linen by Nitwits.  The sentiment is from the Happy Ever After Sentiment Set available here and I used a Marianne die for the envelope.  I used Spellbinders Grand Stately Circles and Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily die.  The bow was made with a Lil' Inker die and the pearl flower trim is from Etsy.

Don't forget there is a new challenge at Delightful Challenge and the theme this week is Bling It On! Sponsored by Cut 'n Paste Memories.

Thank you so much for looking today and your continued support.  I am finding it very difficult to do any crafting at the moment I just don't seem to have much time.  I hope things will settle down a bit, hopefully in a few weeks.  Take care xx

Totally agree on the holiday scene Suzie, never been to the Isle of Wight, maybe some day. I fell in love with the isle of Harris last year, could of been abroad. Some of our coast lines are even better as the surroundings are just stunning. Good to here you had a good time, even better having the gran children to share it. Love your pretty card, papers, design and image just gorgeous. Rather cool here today so might just hide away in my craft room. Have a lovely weekend. Carolxx

Hi Suzie,

Such a gorgeous, sweet card, love the design and all the pearls around the image, which you have coloured in very well by the way!

Glad you had a great holiday we have been lucky with the weather so far, supposed to turn bad again on Sat, the sun brings out the best in everyone and we always seem to find those jobs to do we leave the rest of the year when it would probably be cooler to do lol!

I'm off on hols next week to my sister's so not sure yet whether there will be any posts, at this rate there won't be lol! I'll catch up with everyone when I get back. Leaving all the pets to hubby lol! So he'll have to get up earlier to fit all them in before work bless him.

Love & Hugs
