Create 4 Fun challenge

WOW!!! Before I show you my card I have to say a HUGE thank you to all of you for being so lovely and supportive about my little "outburst" last night. I am so touched by everyone's understanding and lovely words and thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I feel truly blessed that you all cared so much to leave me a message or email me and I do feel better for getting it off my chest as it were. I woke up this morning feeling like I've got rid of my upset about the incident and I would like to say that I hope it doesn't stop anybody taking inspiration from anything I make as I'm more than happy for that to happen, just not a complete copy! OK, enough said on the horrible subject I think and onto a nice sunny card to cheer things up around here......

There is a gorgeous sketch over at Create 4 Fun Challenge this week, I just had to join in!! How gorgeous are these papers by My Minds Eye!?!?! It's their Jack & Jill range and I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them!! Now you will notice there are no torn edges (gasp!) - they just didn't suit these papers I didn't think, too fresh and modern for tearing LOL! I've still inked them though, they don't get off that lightly LOL! I've used peeled paint to sponge around the edges. The lovely scalloped paper comes with the holes already punched around the edge too!

I have used one of Mo Manning's gorgeous stamps, Soaking up the Joy. I just think this is my little girl in a few years time, beaming up at the sun! I have coloured her with distress inks and I've inked around the edge of the image lightly with spiced marmalade distress ink.

The flowers, brads and ribbon are all from the Hobby House and I've sprayed them with pearl glimmer mist. The gorgeous flower pins are also from the Hobby House. The punched flower has been punched with an EK success punch and the leaves with a Woodware punch.

The gorgeous border punch is MS daisy punch. I added a few gems along the edges for some extra sparkle, also from the Hobby House.

Hope you like my "different for me" card and thanks so much for looking! x

Oh Jane, i have not seen your latest news. How awful for you! there are some unscrupulous people out there!
i also have recieved an email from a kind person who has informed me about my copyright marks on my digis and how easy they are to steal. This was very kind of the person and i'm setting about changing my watermark on my digi images. I am fully aware this goes on but its obviously more out there than we thought.
never mind Jane copying is the highest form of flattery!keep on going hun and chin up!
Your cards are just fab!!

Hugs di xxxx

A gorgeous creation Jane. Love your colouring. Your papers are gorgeous. Your close up pics are so nice and clear, not sure where I'm going wrong... maybe you have one of those expensive cameras... or I should invest in a better one...lol as my close ups are always blurry! Nevertheless, wishing you a wonderful crafty weekend and thanks so much for popping by and your lovely comments too. Hugs Sharon
