Inspirational Card Sketches #10

Good morning to you all. I hope you are all having a good week so far. A little sad in my house this morning because my mum and dad are going home today. My mum and I have had a great time craft shopping all week and have truly shopped til we dropped!! I am off work today so that we can drive them to the airport at lunch time ... it will be stange with them gone!

Anyway, I will look forward to seeing what mum makes with all her new stash ... she might even be able to take part in this weeks Inspirational Card Sketches .

Now I really like this card but you should have seen me having a diva moment (or 2) whilst making it. For some bizarre reason my ink decided to be all smudgy, especially whilst colouring her arms. I think I threw 2 or 3 in the bin before I settled with this one.
I have used all lovely new stash for this card - my WOJ stamps (x3), K & Co papers, nesties and new fab flower!! All from The Hobby House (link in sidebar) on Saturday - Jill, you almost emptied my purse. I had already bought loads of stuff from Jill and went to tell Bev where we were sat for lunch and ended spending £76 on top of earlier. Then went back and got more .... talk about a fab stand with such brilliant merchandise :o)

Here is a closer peep at Melinda .... I just love glamour dust, how did I live without it! This is also my first attempt at masking so be kind, lol. Also my first time colouring her and will probably never make her top green again because I have just lost all the foliage in her top!

Even been good and decorated the inside - slowly getting better at using my papers .... just as well cos it makes all the difference to the finish of my cards!
Please make sure you check out the DT cards - they are such a talented bunch and I just love their cards!!
