and good morning to you all! Hope your day started well. Here we are ok, but it's the most busy week in ages, since before summer I would say. Doctors, employment office, health insurance office, physio, "shoe doctor" etc. I'm grateful that I am alive! If I was longing for last weekend, this is nothing compared to how much I want it to be weekend this week. I know, here and now. But for now that is not working with me even if I know it has to be like that. I do my best and take it one day at the time. I just wish it wasn't so moist outside! My body is not feeling to well in this so lets hope for high and dry fall weather soon and not this.

This is a card made by Mi, well of course it is. I was just looking for a different way of starting my rumblings about my card. LoL It's a quite simple card for the new challenge over at Bearly Mine Challenges. I have used the wonderful pink and orangeie digi set called Cheeky Days. Love the colour combo there. I have paired the papers up with the lovely Gypsy Dance from the Paper Shelter. She is coloured with my Prisma / Polychrome pens. One of my first time doing a whole image this way, so please don't laugh. At least not so that I can see it, ok? 

As we are having the theme of Anything that glitters over at the Bearly Mine Challenges this week, I have glitter all over the card. Not that it normally shows, but this time it does for sure shows on the clothing the dancer is wearing. It doesn't look that bad IRL, it just shows on the picture and it shows really well. LoL. On my flowers are there some frosted lace stickles from Rangers. Gems from my stash and pearls from Rox Stamps here in Sweden. Flowers are from WOC and Kort och Godt. Feathers from Magnolia. All the edges are distressed with some ink from T.H. 

We do have a sponsor for this challenge as well and that is no other than the Lovely Donna from Bearly Mine Designs. Two digi sets of your choice is up for grabs. You don't want to miss out on this. The new Christmas set is to die for, called Christmas ligths and was put up in the shop a few weeks ago. Go and take a look. You find all the links you need to the right here on my blog. 

So please come and join our game. We are waiting for you! And a big thank your for leaving a little trace of you when you're leaving.

Love n hugs

Sorry you are having a rough time, I'll email you later. It's not wet here right now but my joints and back muscles are very painful - I know it's not help but remember you are not alone hun!
Reallyu beautiful card. I looked at it close up too. Your colouring with the pencils is fabulous.
I love how you've blended the colours, especially on her clothes. As soon as I saw her skirt it reminded me of some yummy silk that has rainbows of colour. The colours on the fabric softly blend into each other and you've captured that look and feel here Karen x
