Where is that doily?

Hello and happy sunshine to you all. It's a lovely day here in Kalmar, Sweden with bright sunshine and the sky is blue. Can it be spring showing up? We'll wait and see, don't want to say it out "to early" do we? But I feel my allergy coming on, so it must be true even if it's still really cold.

Speaking of cold, so is my card for this weeks challenge over at the Paper Shelter. Well, the colours I have used is very cold and then paired up with silver, makes the feeling even colder. But I love how it turned out and besides I have used both yellow and brown to the icy colours, so a little warmth. LoL Even if you hardly can see the designer papers they are from Bildmålarna and Prima.

Miss Grumpy (A little bit Grumpy) is coloured with my Letraset markers and some Prisma pens. I fussy cut her as she was in  a bad size for this creation. Tons of details is added to the mix. Gesso, crackle paint, glitter powder, flowers, metal corners, cheese cloth, ribbon, lace, corrugated paper, pearls, you name it, it's here. And in this mix of paints and other stuff there is a doily even if it might be hard to spot. Maybe I used a tiny bit too much of all that paint, but it was so fun! :) The doily is to the upper right if you missed it by any chance.

So why am I talking so much about a tiny doily? Well, the new challenge over at the Paper Shelter this week is "Use a doily" on your creation. That's why I am pointing out that it is really there. :)

As usual we have our $30 gift voucher up for grabs when you play with a TPS image in our challenges. Three digis is up for grabs if you play with a different brand. My team has been amazing this week, so be sure to pop on over to take a look at what they have done and maybe leave some love for them. We all love that. ;)

Ok, this will be it for now. I still have 6 more cards to make this week. So behind and I better get started. Why is there so many birthday parties to attend for the kids and the biggest question of them all; why are they always at the same time? First nothing, then nothing and then 32 of them at once. Oh well better get cracking.

Love n hugs
