Delightful Thursday

Good morning sweet bloggers how is your week going?  My reading list finally reappeared yesterday afternoon.  Usually when it disappears if I keep refreshing the page or open in another window I can eventually get it but it just wasn't playing yesterday! Anyway I have just checked and its still here!

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

I have done a Die Cut Swing Card following a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers.  This was really difficult to photograph and I haven't done that good a job.  The image turns round not sure if you can see that from the picture.  I have used Flippity  Felicia which is available here and on the reverse the sentiment is from the Birthday Sentiment Set which is available here.  I coloured Felicia with my Copics adding some Antique Linen DI around the edges.  Now I smudge a bit of my Copics on the card so I covered that with some Viva Decor Pearl Pen!  The image has been cut out using Spellbinders Labels 18.  The papers are Raspberry Road Glory Days.  I used Lil Inker Little Bow on the outside and on the inside Memory Box Corner Bow.  I don't know why the bottom of the image in the left corner has a reddish hue but IRL it doesn't!

Head over to the Digital Delights Blog and see what the rest of the DT have done. Over at Delightful Challenges there is a new challenge starting today and the theme is Layer It.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Simon Says - Anything Goes
The Crafter's Cafe - Punches and Dies
Divas By Design - Birthday
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Fancy Folds
Ooh La La Creations - Fancy Folds

I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you so much for looking! Take care xx

This is such a cool card. The fold of the card is unique and wonderful.
I really like this one Susan. The colours and that pretty fold are a delight

Thanks for your kind coments. Sorry you have the 15 degree days right now. I went with a friend to the Farmers Market in the adjoining village (the one with the lovely winery). We got some organic veg and some special treats and then went back to our village for a latte.
Weh I got home, DH asked if i wanted to go the larger village just south of us. We had a little wander about, found a few groceries and headed home. It was 30 degrees and we drove for a bit with the window

It is a long way from home but i do love it here.

So cool that you have lived in Saskatchewan.I have not been there....yet! lol
