What a Day

Hello to you all, back again
I have sorted out three shoeboxes full of cards today that are off to the charity shop tomorrow !!! 150 cards and that is just the tip of the iceburg. This is one addictive and expensive hobby, but I can't stop now I am having to much fun and I have learnt so much and made so many new pals.

My card today uses a LOTV image "New Hat" I have coloured her with Promarkers and mounted her onto an oval nestie.My backing paper is downloaded from Cuddly Buddly and I have distressed and inked the edges.I then added a ribbon gems and a couple of flourishes that I die cut. I do hope you like it.xxx

I am entering this into
WILD ORCHID "Ribbons and Bows"

Faye said...

Doreen, what a gorgeous card! I love the image and the wonderful colors. That was a lot of cards you've saved up! I think you produce more actual cards than I do. Sometimes mine are only digital. Still, I have a stack I'd like to get rid of. Mostly they are either stiff or bulky and it would cost pretty much to mail them.

Hi Doreen this is absolutely beautiful, I love those papers and that image is so adorable. I think we must be on the same wave length at the moment Doreen I have been sorting through a lot of my stuff and I have three huge boxes full of cards lol.
