Buttons and Bows at Pollycraft!

Hi Ladies

Super quick post from me today.  Life is a bit stressful at the moment, am waiting to exchange contracts on our house and it was supposed to happen on Monday!  It is now planned for today so please keep your fingers crossed for me!

So today is a brand new challenge at Pollycraft (where did those last two weeks go!) and our theme this week is:

"Buttons and Bows"

I have used an image from the "Classic Cave" and she is called "Cherry Kisses Warm Christmas":

For some reason I only took one photo!  She is coloured with copics and the paper is free from a magazine some time ago.  I have used ribbon and rhinestone sparklers from the Hobby House and the die is Die-namics Let it Snowflake.  My colouring is rubbish on this card but I had run out of time to redo it and I guess you have to share the good and the bad!  I do love these older images!

I hope you can join in this fortnight.  Please pop on over to the challenge blog for some fabulous inspiration.

Told you it would be a quick one!  Have a great day and see you again soon.

Love and Hugs

  14. I'm enjoying going through your blog pictures and apologize if I don't leave a note on each picture but time is limited (as usual). There are cards, however, that I sit and stare at and have to let you know which ones. This is gorgeous. I LOVE the image and the colors are superb. You color beautifully and have wonderful embellishments and style. --Gail
