A scary card... and some happy news!

Good morning friends and crafters. I am finally back again. Fighting a should that has some kind of inflammation at this time, so I should not really be doing this at all. But can't help myself just as always, but I am trying to take it a little easier at least. LoL

So I have a card to show but I think you should close your eyes. It's very bright and the only thing close to good on this one is the colouring. However the image is really cute and she is one of the new ones from the Paper Shelter called Adorable Miss Hall and she is found over at the Paper Shelter store. She is coloured with my Letraset family. Put together with a bunch of designer papers from Bearly Mine Design from the Designer Extreme CD III. Lovely goodies to be found there. A whole flower shop is used first to decorate and then to cover up a paw print from one of my cats.

Probably should have left it as he then walk right into the glue for the feather so now there is some traces left of him still. Dear crafting Good, why have you given me a cat who can't stay away from the crafting table? Isn't it the glue, or glitter he walks right into the distress inks. Hopeless case! However the golden glitter smearing that is left, I have done all by myself. My hand started to shake so terrible, so now I back on my normal doze of pills again. It was no good idea trying to reduce them at this point. Hopefully more stable in a few days.

As always there is a gift voucher up for grabs as first prize if you use a TPS image on your creation. Three digis of your choice if you play with another brand.

And then there was some happy news. Thrilled to have fond out that I was top three over at the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenges last time. Got there with my handbag card. Big surprize and for sure gave me my mojo back, at least a little. :) Thank you so much for that!

And then good news part II. About a month back I found out that I am now a part of the lovely team over at Crafty Card Makers team. Woohoo! Thank you Lin and the rest of the lovely gang for taking me into your blogging family. I will have links up to all the gals as soon as my shoulder allows me. I can't wait to get started and thrilled to join in.

Love n hugs
Marie

Ps: Remind me that I shouldn't use that much orange in my creations in the future. The only one happy about that is my youngest son. LoL He happens to have orange as his fave colour, but I think I had that as mine too when I was four years old. LOL

Hm...har börjat gilla orange igen...Undrar om det innebär att jag börjar återfå lite barnasinne...kunde ju vara trevligt som omväxling till de dagar man känner sig som 80 ;-)
Finfint kort som alltid & stort Grattis till både top3 och nya dt-platsen! Inte ett dugg förvånad över nåt av det, du är så duktig tjejen!

It's gorgeous Marie. I happen to love the colour orange so hope i'm not too gaudy. I so remember the joy of having cats! I used to study dressmaking and the little horrors always appeared when I had to lay out and pin fabric! These days I can't leave decorative paper out as he thinks he's entitled to take it and rip it up. And then there is grunge paper and card - my wee beastie can smell it. If I have any out he steals it!
It's a beautiful card Marie, sorry to hear your shoulder is so bad and you're struggling. Congrats on making the Crafty Card Makers DT hun, I'm not surprised though you're cards are wonderful hugs Karen x
