Long Time No See...

Hi friends,

Nice to see you again! You didn't think that I'd disappeared from blogland, did you?! I think I have been too generous to myself and given myself way too much time for holiday and rest, don't you think? Hee hee! free smileys Well, I guess it is time to get back to blogland and keep in touch with my love of crafting.

Here is my first card of this year. (For some of you crafty lot, God knows how many you have made already! Shame on me!)

I made this card for a very good friend of mine. (Hope she does not see this before her birthday!) I am entering this card to Divas by design challenge #19 by following the below sketch:

I followed the sketch exactly. It is a nice layout.
I am also entering The Play Date Cafe Challenge #116 by using the suggested colours:
Plum...Pear...Moldy Cheese
For a million years I would never thought of using these colour combination. I am more of a pastel/ bright colour person. Darker colours to me are certainly a challenge. It was a bit scary at first to use these colours and it took me ages to find the right colour paper. I think it turned out rather well.

For the main image, I have used Pergamano clear stamps - Summer Fairies (code 41906). It is stamped by using Memento Black ink and coloured in by Copic Ciao marker pens. I can't resist by adding Stickles Crystal glue on her wings. You can't make a card without glitters right?!  The text is from Whimsy Stamps - Ticket Sentiments set and a gem has been added for the dot on the "i". Here is a close up of the main stamped image. I hope you like this card.

OK, enough of blogging for today. Now I am back, hope you should see me often. I will be back later for something that you've not seen before. Am I teasing? Surely not! celebrity fashion gallery

Have a good day!
