Delightful Thursday (Late)

I have my post for Digital Delights Thursday which is obviously very late (sorry).  This is due to the fact that I am have had a huge personal trauma in my life and I just cannot get my head around blogging/crafting at the moment.  I won't bore you with the details but I do apologise for not getting around to see and comment on all your lovely blogs. I am hoping normal service will return soon and promise to catch up with you all I hope you can bear with me a while longer xxx

New Release At Digital Delights

Hello and a big welcome to my blog, thank you so much for calling in today!  Over at Digital Delights we are celebrating the beginning of April with a New Release.  Here is my card:

This little cutie is called Cotton Candy Scottie and is available here to purchase, of course here in the UK he would be called Candy Floss Scottie lol!  I coloured Scottie with my Copics and used Spellbinders to cut and mat him.  The papers are also Digital Delights from the Mix Them Up Digital Paper Pack which is available here.  I also used Spellbinders for the stars and the borders.  That cute ticket sentiment is by Digital Delights called Ticket Sentiments Set available here, it comes with a blank one too so that you can add your own sentiment - so useful!

To take a look at all the other designs head over to the Digital Delights Blog and see what the rest of the talented team have done with the new release:
